That's a really cool idea, I just wish it wasn't glass. I have one glass cutting board I bought on the premise that it couldn't get CC'd and I can't stand the sound of cutting on it.  :ph34r: It's beautiful though, and a great gift for people who like glass cutting boards, shared house or not.  :)

The cutting boards are only $24 with the discount code.  FYI. 

 

Last night we had - grilled pork chops, black rice with some parm on top, seasoned with a little garlic and onion powder and basil olive oil, salad, homemade applesauce, brownies with ganache and raspberries and champagne.

I am still seriously considering a cutting board at that price. Just... not for me. My Grammy's kitchen has always been blue everything and our family has always been quite proud of our name. So a blue monogrammed cutting board sounds like a splendid gift if I can check my Christmas budget and see what's what. I just honestly hadn't thought much about Christmas yet.  :ph34r:

 

Sounds like last night was pork night and apple night. We're having the rest of our pork roast tonight, at least that's my plan. I'm not home to see if my husband gets into it for lunch or not. If he does I'm sure I'll manage to come up with something else.

Not much time to cook anything extravagant tonight so I made spicy roasted butternut squash, carrot and poblano soup with a drizzle of pumpkinseed oil. That's it!

You make "that's it" sound positively drool-worthy.

 

We scored some bogo Malibu pre-seasoned chicken breasts at the store last night. Baked those with garlic taters. I also got some Udi's blueberry muffins on sale after I went out to vote today so that's dessert with a cup of milk.

Last night I made grilled pork chops, green beans, and red potatoes sliced up and baked with some parmesean and garlic on them.  Yummm!

 

Tonight I heated up my chicken broccoli rice cheesy casserole I made and froze last time I made it.  I love making my own frozen "stouffers meals" for when I need them!

Hey Love2,

 

Remember you mentioned Maple Butter the other day?  I would really love the know how to make it.  And I have my new waffle iron in hand, now I'm all ready for when Irish gets back and I get her recipe for waffles.

 

It's breakfast for dinner here tonight.   Yummmmmm.

 

Thanks,

 

Colleen

I wrote alfredo on my dinner planner. (I'm trying out ways to be responsible, not sure if I'm a fan.) I don't do alfredo for a variety of reasons, so I'm going to do plain old spaghetti. It's easy since I'll be cooking pasta anyway and tomatoes just don't do me in the way a huge hit of parmesan will.

 

I'm about ready to crash for the day and it's only 4:30! I still have to do dishes (because I was skipped yesterday, caught up in housework) and find energy to actually cook dinner. Life has been about 1000% more hectic than usual and I've just been running myself ragged and I need to stop. Hopefully Friday is the last day of eventfulness and life can return to the mundane that I'm more accustomed to.

Hi! You are going to have such fun with your waffle maker. I believe it is the little things that can really elevate a dish. All you do is blend soft butter with a glug or generous drizzle of maple syrup and blend well (or even do it in a mixer). Then add some ground chipotle chile or just buy it already ground. Just a shake or two. Or leave it out and just use the maple butter which, by the way, is lovely with a vanilla bean. I make all sorts of butters and sauces for pancakes such as butter rum which is yum. For your tum. Just don't use gum. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

Yes, I'm learning that these smaller details make a big difference.  I'm excited to make the butter.  Does it matter if the butter is salted or not salted?  And will a drop of vanilla extract work instead of a bean?

 

Thanks,

Much better, thank you! A good night's rest and a calm day today are just what the doctor ordered to clear out the funks. :)

Ooh! I'm in the market for a waffle iron. What brand did you get? Is it Belgian style or regular?

Abbs,

 

I got a Rival.  I chose regular as opposed to Belgium because I like waffles a bit firmer, crisper instead of doughy.  If you get one ask Irish for her waffle recipe.  She told me I would love it.

Yes, vanilla extract would be fine. If you want, you can drizzle in agave syrup instead of maple. The only limit is your imagination! Orange juice and zest is lovely, too. Heck - whip in some pumpkin puree with a bit of cinnamon. You can also infuse honeys with flavour. Salted butter may be a touch salty BUT in this case, a bit of salt would be nice. I sprinkle my chocolate chip cookies and fudge brownies with salt. Soooooooo good.
