604 POSTS

I almost forgot, today makes 604 POSTS.  Holy cupcakes, that went fast.  And even though I admit that there were times when I wanted to pack it in - overall, I love having this little space all my own. Thank you Boogerbutts, for reading.

Much appreciated.

Also I made stuffing bread.  I added the seasoning right into my dough, then dried the pieces.  I'm still working out the formula.  Next time I'll use homemade chicken (or veg), stock instead of water, when making the dough.  Just to see.

Here's where I'm at so far.  Click to enlarge.



AND dig Tim's latest issue of The Manor.  He worked all ding dong weekend, then left early this morning to ship them.  The Manor makes him happy.  I'm super duper proud of him.



All in all, a great snowy weekend.  We stayed in the ENTIRE time, both working on our projects.  But now it's Monday and Wilma and I got work to do.  But first, check out these FREEBIES I snagged from BK.  ZERO out of pocket, Baby.

Liked these so much, went back next day for 4 FREE more.

    1. Howdy Dezzy -- I baked homemade bread to dry out and use later to make stuffing. BUT, instead of adding the seasoning later, I just baked the yummy goodness, right into my dough.

      My gosh, it's so yummy. I keep stealing a little piece here and there. If I'm not careful, there won't be any left for stuffing.

      Tums are for an upset belly/heartburn.

    1. Thanks.

      Yes, it's so easy to make. Now for the final test, re-dehydration from dried to real stuffing.

  4. Congrats on the milestone.

    Also can confirm that The Manor is great. I bought the PDF version and read it straight through as soon as I had downloaded it. Packed with good stuff and I will be making good use out of it somewhere down the line

  5. 604 posts! Wow. Holy crap on a kale crisp, that's a lot of blogging. Congrats! :)

    (Yeah, I just finished reading Dylan's Digital Orc post, so I have kale crisps on the brain).

    1. Perfect timing. Since you guys aren't gaming, Tim is taking me to Wegmans tonight (if no storm), and baby organic kale was on my list. So I'll be making Dylan's kale chips as well. Never made them before, only heard stories of how yummy they are.

      Just left a message on your blog. I am working on a vegan apple crumb topping and a vegan stuffing. I have some ideas on what to try without needing some of those crappy vegan butters on the market. Or, I think they are crappy. Even though I do confess to eating one brand, back in my VegHead days.

    1. Oh my gosh, it's so crispy. Was a little dry the first time I tried it but I tell ya what? I like how it holds up in almond milk. Also, I want to make a healthier Chex mix with my own bagel chips.

    1. Made the stuffing tonight. Was really good. For a first time out, I was impressed. Not so impressed though with the chicken and rice I made tonight. Horrible.

    1. Thanks for saying that because I miss taking them. My good photography light died, and I haven't replaced it yet. Miss that little light. Hope to find a good deal on replacing it soon.

    1. It's very easy to make and even better, stores great. No way I'd ever get any bag of stuffing out, again. It's that good.

  16. First of all, hi!
    Second of all, congratulations on all those posts!
    Third, I think I could eat stuffing all the time, every day, a little with every meal. And that stuffing bread looks gorgeous!
