Aside from a coffee run and a walk with a friend, most of my day was spent in the kitchen yesterday.
- brownies that weren't good enough to shareI have to digress and say a few words about Grandma's salads. I think I loved them all as a kid, and remember having at least one to choose from at every family gathering; vegetable marinades, jello with sprite and fruit molds, jello with vegetables, fruit salads, cold spaghetti, 4-bean, that one with peas, bacon, and white dressing... what am I forgetting?
- Chocolate Ginger Cookies that I did share
-a dinner entree sample that I also shared, at a BabyBootCamp mom's night out recipe exchange (and after sampling all of their entree & recipes, I've determined that I have a decidedly different idea of what is 'quick' and 'easy' for parents with young children to cook!). I made "Camel Pockets" from this guy's book.
- the famous no knead bread start
- Grandma Patterson's cauliflower salad, pictured.
... and in Danielle's for MNO (forgot the dang camera).
... and then again in my kitchen (Paul helped!):
