... not that I'm good lookin'. But you know. Just liking that catchy opening, is all.
I've been cooking up a storm this week. Not sure why, but I guess I've been in the mood and felt like with all my attention focused on other things this past little while, I needed to channel some of my creative energies back to the kitchen.
So here's a recap:
:: ground my wheat for the week.
:: made two pans of granola.
:: :: two different kinds of raw date-nut balls. "Cookie Dough" and "Brownie Bites". Good to store in the freezer for lunches and "when I need a little something".
:: whole grain pancake mix
:: baked a batch of carrot cake muffins for Wednesday's breakfast
:: cheezy sauce (recipe here) to accompany this night's dinner of Mountain Man Hash (stir fried potatoes, onions, peppers, and zucchini spears)
:: big mixed veggie and greens salad bowl with Sweet Mustard Dressing (recipe here) to accompany.
:: mixed up dough for daily bread and pizza dough (to freeze). Stored overnight in the fridge. (I use Artisan Bread in 15 Minutes a Day method.)
:: green smoothies for breakfast to go with yesterday's already baked muffins.
:: baked the whole grain loaves to go with tonight's planned Sweet Potato, Corn, and Kale chowder.
Whew. Seeing all this written down makes me tired. I did a lot. It was work. It was satisfying. I hope it's worth it. I think it is.
Tomorrow, we garden!
