I was busy yesterday…After the grocery store and the bliss that was Fage Total, I spent almost the rest of the afternoon in the kitchen. I started by making some soda bread:
It’s a little difficult to see, but I burned myself on the baking sheet as I was putting the loaf back down to pop back in the oven for a few minutes. No matter. It’s already starting to scab over a bit.
Because it was chilly enough out (I actually shut all the windows in the house), I thought pot roast sounded really good for dinner. My original intention was to toss it in the crock pot, but we got to the store later than I wanted, and I forgot to tell Jay to go grab some carrots from the garden. I opted to use my roaster instead:
I’ll be just as busy today, I think. I’m going to get laundry started here in a few–After I take a shower. I went running this morning, and while I didn’t do the full 20 minutes I was supposed to, I did 2 10-minute intervals, which is huge for me, so I was/still am really proud of myself. After I get the laundry going, I’m going to try out another Jessie recipe–Brown sugar cookies. I had such good luck with the Mandelbrot, and it’s been a long time since I’ve had sugar cookies. Since I don’t have a cookie press (hint hint, Mom–You got Kendra one…Maybe you could get me one this year!), I’ll have to do the same as Dan, and cut them out–I have my great-aunt’s biscuit cutter that I’ll use since the only cookie cutters I have are Christmas-themed. I suppose I should get crackin’ on all I need to do!
