Two of the most fulfilling parts of my life.

First, some food stuff. Matt and I have this binder...it's filled with recipes that we've ripped out of magazines and printed off the internet or that people have given to us...and we've probably used 10% of them. There's a bunch that we use all the time, like the No-Knead bread recipe and the veggie dumpling recipe and the carrot cake recipe...but for the most part, they languish in this binder. I decided, since I was off this week, to make some of these recipes. Last night, I made Spicy Shrimp and Corn Chowder, No-Knead Bread and Coconut Chocolate Chip cookies.

The soup was pretty delicious, but too spicy for me. It called for a poblano pepper, which I had none of, but I did have chipolte peppers in adobo, so that is what I subbed in. I should have rinsed the adobo sauce off the peppers, because I couldn't finish my bowl of soup! The cookies on the other hand? Freakin' fabulous! There were a Cooking Light recipe (as was the chowder) so it was a small portion, but I think I might double the recipe and bring more with us to Altoona!

Yesterday we also did pancakes in our electric skillet:

Blueberry Oatmeal Pancakes to be exact. They were super runny, so we had to add more flour. Probably not a recipe I would use again, but worth it for a Sunday morning.

Today's dinner was a combination of convenience, a recipe I've made before, and something new. Mini Cheesy Meatloafs, Zucchini Pancakes and Instant Mashed Potatoes.

I've made zucchini pancakes many times before, but I have a tendency to forget the baking powder, so they were usually pretty flat...but I remembered it this time, so we had fluffy pancakes. I didn't finish my mashed potatoes, because I don't like instant and the meatloaves were pretty yummy.

It looks like my computer battery is running out and I'm ready for bed, so I will finish up telling you about my reading adventures tomorrow!
