Last week I made a batch of marshmallows and posted the above picture on Instagram. It wasn’t until someone commented on my blog post from ages ago that I remembered I wrote about them! Here’s the post if interested.
My Montana-living brother comes home tomorrow night. He’s babysitting the chitlins Tuesday evening and he requested honey baked chicken. So honey baked chicken it will be.
I also have a whole chicken in the freezer that I want to roast to have cooked chicken on hand. Some will go in a soup over the weekend and the rest back in the freezer.
Didn’t put a very big dent in the carrot stash last week. Then Brad accidentally bought me 5 pounds (I asked for 1…to make carrot sticks for an event which we didn’t end up going to due to sickness) at the grocery store so I have THEM to use up too. I hesitate to serve homegrown carrots to people who aren’t used to them because they ARE different. So, more carrots this week when possible. Maybe I’ll just serve carrot sticks every day for lunch. The kids will love me.
Believe it or not, I’m getting tired of baking cookies. There are still a few kinds I’d like to make. We’ll see if it happens. (One thing I have s-l-o-w-l-y learned: make half-batches so there aren’t soooo many cookies. I love the variety but we can only get away with so many!)
