Another quick post for me. I hate it when work gets in the way of my blogging. 🙂 But to tide you over, here is a picture of my precious little Caddie.
Yesterday, I decided to make buckwheat pancakes and eggs for breakfast. I would post the recipe for the pancakes but they were a flop. I used a recipe I found online and they turned out way too thin and I generally prefer thick fluffy pancakes. The flavor was good but I need to work on the texture.
For lunch, I made grilled ham and cheese in an attempt to use up some ingredients out of the fridge. I had a blueberry chobani along side. I will sure miss these yogurts when they are gone!
Dinner was a fantastic crockpot roast with potatoes and carrots. I also made roasted broccoli for the side. This meal was comfort food at it’s best! Both the dear husband and I loved it.
For dessert, I made brownie sundaes but these were not just any brownies. I am testing recipes in search of brownies similar to the ones I got at the farmers market a while back. The lady that made them told me that the butter and chocolate content needs to be high and the flour needs to be low. Well, after weeks of searching for recipes, I found a cookbook in the book store yesterday with a great recipe. In the end, I think the flour was a bit too low so I will try these again…very soon…with a little more flour. I plan to make brownies as Christmas gifts this year and I will need the recipe to be just right!
Thought Provoker: The holiday season is officially upon us, are you ready? We are, we have decided to forgo the big blow out Christmas gift exchange and instead will be making homemade gifts and have asked our family and friends to not buy us gifts or at least only spend a small amount of money. We have also set a very small limit on our gifts to each other. I think this will make us appreciate the time with our families more and make it much less stressful.
