I had the day off today
from work that is...
and spent the day doing equal parts of cooking
and sitting on my butt
I love taking a random Monday or Friday off
this time of year and having a me day
today was that day
and although I did a little more than I intended
I feel good with what I got accomplished
an extra day to recharge the batteries
is always welcome as it is a long long time
between New Years and Easter!
I cooked my Tourtiere on Wednesday
and it turned out really good
love that I took the leftovers to my Mama
and she enjoyed it too
muffins were on the menu yesterday
these were Cranberry Oatmeal Muffins
it called for dried cranberries but I had dried blueberries for another recipe
so I threw those in instead and they turned out great
I can't find the link to the recipe but once I find it I will add it
now for the recipe I have been wanting to try and actually excited about making them
not sure what happened but they are doughy ~ they did not rise
and they are now in the garbage
not really but it was a disappointment
my Italian Wedding Soup however did turn out
and after scooping some out to take to Mom
I put the rest in the fridge as
this will be an easy meal this week
now I have been hanging on to this recipe for months
Strawberry Lemonade Scones
called for strawberries but I bought blueberries
and let me tell you ~ I could eat this for dinner
yup ~ dinner ~ they are that good!
but instead we had this...
Chicken Enchilada Pasta
picture and recipe found here
although I cannot find enchilada sauce here
I found a recipe on line and made my own
it was good and made enough to have tonight
and then freeze for another meal
and that was cutting the recipe in half!
this little one was happy when I would sit for a bit
she loves having someone home.
Hope you had a great weekend!!
