King Arthur Flour $62.84
Last week I went to King Arthur Flour to buy a few specialty ingredients as there are a few bread recipes I want to try out before winter rolls around. I don’t know how it happened, but a box of lemon bar and lava cake mix jumped in the cart as well. 😉 I’ve never used pumpernickel or Irish style flours before but I am excited to work with them.
Homemade bread is kind of an art form if you ask me, and luckily the HH is really good at from his days of working in a pizza place. I think I’ll try and enlist him to help me with the bread recipes this summer.
It’s been a few months since I had made Ritz Cracker chicken for dinner and since we were having homemade rolls, and I had some left over mashed potatoes in the fridge, I thought it was the perfect time to make a pan of the buttery and crunchy goodness. If you haven’t tried the Ritz Cracker chicken yet, you don’t know what you are missing and you totally need to make it.
Corned beef, kraut, lack luster carrots and mashed potatoes. It’s a good thing I added a little pepper for some flair.
Frozen lasagna dinner and Texas toast. My toast is on the right, the HH’s is at the top of the pan. He thinks I overcook the toast…. I think he under cooks it. Please end this martial debate and chime in below because TOAST SHOULD HAVE A LOUD CRUNCH when you bite into it.
Big salad with whole beets, tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, cheese, salami, dried cranberries, avocado, egg and a little ranch dressing. I can eat this for lunch and be done with food for the rest of the day.
Saturday night beans. And pork ribs and mustard potato salad from ALDI.
Sunday night picky dinner, or pickety bits, as Alfred from Downton Abbey would call it. 🙂 Whatever you want to call this little sampler style dinner, we sure enjoy eating it about once a week. And the apple-wood smoked Gouda cheese from ALDI? Delicious!
And last but not least, a pineapple upside down cake minus the maraschino cherries. I do like a maraschino cherry in a Shirley Temple drink, but I wasn’t sure I’d want them in a cooked cake. Any who, the cake turned out delicious and lucky us, there are leftovers for breakfast this morning.
How about YOU? How was YOUR week? Did you make anything especially tasty or just the same old same old stuff? Curious minds want to know!
