I cooked my food and I thought it turned out really nice.
I am not a food picture taker. I just can't make it look
like the food I see on blogs. For one thing, this took a long
time to prepare and by the time I was finished with it
I didn't want to fool with it anymore. My kitchen was a mess,
and sweat was running down my back and I was ready to
do something else.
I do love it that my kids go crazy over something that has
eggplant in it.
It got a little to brown but it was nice and crunchy on the outside
but moist and flavorful on the inside. I got the recipe here
I still burned the heck out of my tongue, so it really retains heat.
I made my dinner rolls, and they only ate 6 so you know what that means?
I am going to have these things here calling my name. All week. I haven't been
eating bread lately. You know that strawberry jam I made? Well, it goes really
good with these rolls that are going to be shouting at me from the kitchen.
My son, melted butter and put it on the outside when they came out of the oven.
I can't tell you where the recipe is because it lives in my head. It is my
all purpose dinner roll recipe that never fails. But, I don't measure anything.
I will pay attention next time I make them and I will
write it down so you can have it. I use it for cinnamon rolls and
stuff like that.
I ended up making two peach/blueberry pies. When I went to the store
this morning they had blueberries in great big containers so when they
start hitting our stores I buy them and start freezing and putting them
in the freezer. So I had them sitting on the counter and I thought
I would just add some blueberries to the peaches. My recipe is here
I did do my photo op picture but the pie didn't look very pretty.
I didn't feel like putting it into photo shop and doing all of that stuff
so this was how it looked. My husband ate my photo op pie and made yummy
sounds so I think that means it is a good recipe. He said he was going to request
it at Thanksgiving. I am so glad I have peaches in the freezer. Blueberries too.
Though one of the reasons I freeze blueberries are just in case it gets really
hot and the hens need a bit of something to cool them off. :)
It was a nice day, I hope your week is a nice week.
