whew… nearing the end of tuesday… FAT Tuesday! fun times, indeed!
i am uploading quite a few photos to PhotoBucket– so here we go:
She also spent last Saturday (THOR, too) at Holmes Lake for the Polar Bear Plunge for Special Olympics (www.sone.org) – cheering on Aunt Shelly– brrrrr!!!! Lu got to meet Herbie Husker… so that was exciting
sooo– for the post about dinner last night… i am finally learning how to work the google reader, and am hooked on these (and many other) blogs…
sixoneseven – where i found a recipe for roasted red pepper soup
and a Friend to Knit With where i found (a) my newly prized dutch oven and (b) a recipe for bread with which to cook in it
so i attempted:
first, with the raising of the bread.
the evening prior (post Oscars) i tried for the wheat version. that yeast must have been bad… no rising here.
so in the a.m. i made a white flour version – by the time i was home from work, it was raising as suggested in the recipe. yea me!
i decided to move forward with BOTH loaves, because, what did i have to lose?
it was like a science experiment in my own oven… (though i had a pretty good idea of the outcome)
and this is once sliced– hahaha! (experiment successful – i guess you could say!)
AJ wanted to save the wheat for the dogs– but i fear what that may do to their digestive tract… (and we all know who would receive the brunt of that, don’t we?)
so, i am a slug and didn’t get a photo of the finished rrp soup… but, yum! (i guess i could show you the empty Tupperware in which i ate from for lunch today– but that is probably a bit much for photo realism)
on the soup: i really liked it… not so sure about AJ… but i kind of prefaced his eating it by saying, “if you don’t like it…”… and of course, i made two chicken cutlets because Goodness Forbid i serve a meatless meal… he did say it was “good”… but he’s just a sweet boy, so you really never know.
and, i may be partly to blame – i never actually told him there was a pear (gasp) and carrots (oh, for shame) in the recipe… because i know all too well, that the rrp would never get anywhere near his lips…. i am learning, oh yes, i am learning….
unless of course, the hubs is reading this, and then i would say to that– i’ll only make it when i host the friends for Girls’ Night soon!! 😉 Love you! 😉 (eek!)
btw– i am suddenly a fan of greek yogurt! yum!
so, that’s quite the post… now- to rescue the sewing machine from the fix-it-guy!
