Still trying to catch up on posts…especially where I have some photos. Last weekend, I made the blueberry souffle from the Yumology blog. One of the reasons I started this log was for recipes like this…I run across is online on a weekend morning trying to figure out what to make for breakfast, and make it. Trying to keep track of the successes and failures has been difficult.
Part of our challenge is modifying recipes to fit out no peanut, tree nut, fish diet since Kid 1 has life threatening allergies to these. The original recipe on Yumology had almonds and almond paste. I substituted sun butter (sunflower seeds) for the almond paste…ended up being a bit of an odd flavor, maybe use a bit less than called for next time.
But something else happened and it took about twice as long as the recipe called for to cook. I am not sure if there was more water in the berries or what, but it was a bit soupy.
That aside, it was a delicious breakfast treat!
This was last night’s meal. We make the Mostly Whole Wheat Baguettes from TFMCB Sunday night. It ended up being a bit on the heavy side, but still worked alright for the paninis.
Based on a sandwich that we love from a local restaurant, we put sliced apples, brie and ham in them!
The brie melts and starts dripping out the sides, the apples add a bit of sweetness…a great combination!
Add in some broccoli for veggies and it was a really nice meal. Lunch leftovers were a treat too!
From Mark Bittman’s Food Matters Cook Book: Pasta with smashed peas, prosciutto and scallions.
This was really good. The smashed peas made a great sauce and the proscuitto added flavor. We used whole grain pasta.
It was also quick to make!
We made the Campfire casserole from Leanne Ely’s Saving Dinner on Sunday. Yummy, though either increase the filling or make less cornbread topping. Lots of yummy leftovers!
The Chicken Bulgar Skillet from Taste of Home was really good.
Last night we made the Lemony-Chicken with Potatoes and Beans from Dinner a Love Story.
We had some purple potatoes left from another night and used those. Mom and Dad say the only problem with the recipe is that we didn’t have any leftovers! Kids thought the veggies were too lemony. Can’t please everyone…Maybe next time only put lemon slices in half of the dish and give the kids veggies from the other half.
Not sure how to start this blog off other than to just post this week’s meals…so here we go:
