Oh wow, that came out good. I subbed 1/2 a cup of olive oil for the stick of butter required. While you can kinda taste the oil, its a heck of a lot lighter than the butter version. I only added butter to the crumble on top.

hey! that's a great idea! how did it turn out? how was the crust - what would you compare it to? thin crust? squishy? fluffy?

my daughter's friend used to be the manager of our local domino's - i bet she could get them to sell to me... :)


Well, the crust was ok. Not as good as Pamela's mix. I'll have to post our Pamela's modifications in the recipe section. But it was good enough. Thinner than most and got floppy during cooking. Next time I'll do it on the griddle.

Tonight was a family feast. Ribs, fried okra, hash brown casserole, sweet potatoes and roasted root veggies, green beans, and flourless chocolate cake. Whoa. Fed 18 people in our house and not one of them missed the gluten. Life is good.

My chicken nuggets were okay. They weren't fantabulous, but they good. The sort of thing I think I could stand to keep around for when I am just not feeling up to cooking. My spicy blackberry mustard sauce was awesome. I was a little worried because when I first tasted it I thought I was going to take the roof of my mouth off, but a little honey smoothed it out and it isn't like you're eating it from a spoon on a nugget. I cooked a pot of brown sugar apple sauce to go with it.

 

Nothing fancy like cakes, but I keep telling myself that one of these days I'll work up the enthusiasm to make apple muffins.

I agree! Life is very good indeed!

 

Well, I liked that pot roast in the slow cooker thinger so much, it's happening again today.  :D

 

We've got a new fridge coming today (the last thing I am buying for the new owners; they can replace the cabinets!)

I have some gardening to do and I have hundred off books and CDs to sort through, donate, pack up or throw.

 

It seems these things multiply like tribbles. :blink:

Oh i wish i could have some of the stuff you guys are making. Too busy to cook at the moment.

 

I've got... 3-6 papers to do (ranging from 2 -21 pages), going over homework i thought i was fully completed, studying for three finals, and doing one take home final.

 

This stupid cold really set me back. I had planned on doing most of the papers this past week, but no <_<

 

I'm not much of a procrastinator though. I get a lot of homework during the week and weekend. And reading. Lots and lots of reading.

shadow:  you sound like my daughter right now.  i had never heard of "dead week" lolz - she will be done with this semester (for the summer, i think!) on friday.  in the meantime, i am trying not to distract her.  feel better!!  you will do great  :)

cool!!!!

 

gotta try this soon :)

we *do* play with our food, don't we?!! :D  i'm now thinking i could probably use kind of the same technique, except with lasagne noodles, cut them into rectangles and fill with egg roll filling.  they would be still sticky enough to hold together, i think, and then fry the whole mess in olive  canola oil.  (one of these days ima get another deep fryer)

 

i feel a kitchen-wrecking coming on ;)

 

(edited to change olive to canola oil)

Olive oil can have a strong flavor.  Light olive oil might be better in baking.

Last night we had chicken tacos and this veggie mix  http://www.walmart.c...-14-oz/10791050

 

 

It was quite tasty and simple veggie mix.

Glad your slow cooker thinger is getting some use! Mine is today with a pork roast. I'll also be picking up some Panela at the market and making some fried cheese to use up that berry mustard sauce.

 

One of these days I'll get up the guts to try different types of beans. The few I have tried have all turned out badly and right now I'm just no up to losing my vision to a bean again. Stoopid beans. <_<

 

Aaaaaand..... I got rang out of bed at 10 o'freakin'clock in the morning today for an interview! Woohoo! It is only as a backup secretary so it is super super part time, but that is probably all I am up to just now and it will probably suit me just fine. It is also what I went to freakin college for so I'm thrilled at the shot. I'm crossing my fingers. :D Life is in fact good. Except the no chocolate part, which is a rule I will break quite happily to celebrate today if I land a new job.
