This past weekend we were gator-deep with expanding Tim's publishing area. We dialed out for pizza, regular for him, cheese-free veggie explosion, for me. And don't you know it, my face broke out in a blotchy rash.
Ah well, live and learn. That about wraps it up. Time to drop the lid on this coffin and get some shuteye.
We just finished Tim's office. Now he can run his printing press on one side, as he draws maps, on the other.
Not too shabby.
The answer to Friday's Question was, organic yellow corn tortilla chips. Aldi sells them and for not being homemade, these little crispy treats are pretty good.
If you played, please enjoy your three ice cubes, two pipe cleaners, and a great BIG bag of dust.
As for us, we're enjoying our three-day weekend. Awake all kinds of hours, got dial-out dinner, and today, with any luck, we'll have a great big fat snow storm, and a freshly baked batch of homemade bagels. But for now, we're headed to watch Ghost Adventures.
The plan was simple. Spend Sunday cooking and baking meals so that today, I could write dog treat and practice making videos.
Instead, I feel like a big fart because my throat is swollen, sore and I'm gonna stay in my Valentine's Day jams, and hide in the Lemon Tart Room.
Anyway, here's a picture I took last week. Only now, the top box is jam-packed with homemade calzones, and that white-lidded box has pizza slices.
Having these homemade frozen meals, makes days like today, so much easier. Because even if I didn't have food made in the fridge, we could live off these.
I love that. So much.
And that my Boogerbutts closes my Monday post. After I hit publish, I'm gonna snuggle between two pups and watch New Zealand's Masterchef, along with The Great British Bake-Off. Because if I can't be in my own kitchen, at least I can watch a these two killer shows.
Eyeballs crossed that I'm back in my lab tomorrow, making peanut butter treats, and practice videos.
I did some good recipe writing. Found a way to increase the peanut butter taste and smell of the dog treats, with less product. Instead of adding the peanut butter into the flour, now I make peanut butter milk using 2TB of peanut butter and 100ml of water. Blitz in the food processor, as my blender is out of commission.
When I open the tin of dog treats, I get smacked in the face with peanut butter. Which is perfect because the pups go nuts for peanut butter.
So much fun.
Okay, break is over. I'm headed back to the kitchen to refill my waffle box. Today, it's vanilla spelt waffles. Tonight, waffles and bacon (I'm out of chicken).
I'm not here today. I'm writing allergy-friendly bakes. This wasn't the direction I planned on taking my food writing, but as it turns out, I'm a good fit for the job.
Which makes sense, I've been doing this forever - creating recipes to fit our needs at the moment.
This week, I'm writing a cookie recipe for a friend who has food allergies that are worse than my snot-filled, gummy-throat dairy allergy. His allergy list is also more challenging, but I'm determined to write a safe bake.
What a fun challenge.
You Boogerbutts have a yummy day & boogie boogie :-)
Right now I've got every room torn apart. Only I got the vacuum tubey thing stuck in the handle, so I figured I'd sit down and take a quick blogger break.
Blogger just highlighted that entire first paragraph for errors but they can suck it.
Meanwhile, I'm loving this little bluetooth box speaker Tim got me for Christmas. I'm playing Nickelback's new CD on the tablet, but listening to it in the other room. I love this little speaker. Makes scrubbing the crappers go a lot faster.
And that my Boogerbutts, wraps up 367 days in a row of blogging, bringing me to 404 for the year. Best get back to chores. Because after this, I'm making waffle cookies.
