Date Night Canceled and Flour A, Flop

Our original date night plans to hit Barnes armed with coupons and gift cards, got squashed. That's okay, a night in sounds pretty darn good too. So we picked up a Redbox movie.

In other news, Flour A didn't work on my chicken tenders. However, this morning, Flour B worked pretty good on American-style pancakes and that gave me an idea for a pancake, cake - layered with coconut frosted goodness. More on that when I give it a go.

Earlier, I told you about making coconut butter. Well, after I did that I also made an almond butter, cacao and coconut butter mix. It was pretty darn good and less expensive than me buying hazelnuts.

It's just about supper time here at The Manor. Chicken legs, tots and organic baby arugula (rocket). Enjoy your weekend and I'll catch ya' on the flipside.

    1. I used to enjoy tomato soup and grilled cheese, back in the day. How was your cheese roll? Baked in, heated? Or room temp?

      Delete
    2. Room temp It was goat cheese, creamy like Brie, and delicious. Using it in our Convent Eggs tonight.

  14. Sorry to hear about date night...just catching up on your blog. The butters sound pretty amazing. They are so popular in the States right now. I read about them everywhere in blog land but have never made any myself. I'll have to look into that. There must be a reason they're so popular right?

    1. Hey Girl. I'm not sure if they are popular or not, but I can tell you that I've been making them at home for a very long time. I'm a from scratch kinda gal.

      Hope you give it a go, it's great fun.
