I've been feeling pretty sorry for myself all weekend since I have laryngitis. I haven't eaten real food in days and wasn't feeling great this morning so I threw some beans in my crockpot and have some ham and bean soup brewing. I'll probably throw some dumplings on it. (Apparently my spellchecker wants to change crockpot to crackpot. :lol: )

I was feeling a bit more spry this evening and made a cherry coffee cake that came out of the oven about 15 minutes ago. I had my dessert first and it was so very delicious.

crackpot :lol:

I told you before and I mean it...dessert before dinner is always a good idea! May I ask you to share that coffee cake recipe? I am stockpiling recipes for when I can eat more things. :lol:

(when I had laryngitis once, my hubs joked it was the most quiet week we ever had in our house. :lol: )

Hope you feel better soon!

And if your fingers cramp up and you can't use the keyboard it will be the quietest time here too! ;) I thought you were in laptop purgatory, or has that ended?

Still getting back into things after being away for a couple of weeks. Simply smoky chipotle, black bean and pancetta soup with lime creme fraiche. Frozen green grapes for dessert. Tomorrow will be a different story! :D

While feeling a bit more spry, I wasn't up to any real baking. I just used the gluten free Bisquick recipe. The texture is different than what I'm used to in a coffee cake but I find if I knock off that expecting what I used to have and accepting that it's different now I enjoy things for what they are.

I'll bet my husband wishes it were the most quiet week in the house. Unfortunately for him I insist upon trying to talk, which is probably more painful to listen to than it is for my throat. :D

I don't know what it's called, but it has chickpeas, kidney beans, crushed tomatoes, diced zucchini, carrot, pumkin, sweet potato, cauliflower, capsicum, broccoli, spinach, onion, mushrooms and chives, and I will put it on to simmer later. We also have jelly and icecream for dessert.


Lord please give me patience, because if you give me strength, I may just beat the living crap out of someone...

Happy V-day to you, dear girl...and Happy V day, Everyone! :)

I am baking the buttery pound cake dusted with powdered sugar I meant to make the other night. Ran out of eggs. :o (I cannot have chocolate right now, damn!) so this is a sweet treat for my baby and me. It smells fab in my kitchen!

Dinner for my sweet guy is filet mignon roast with port mushroom sauce,

oven- roasted root veggies (potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, rutabaga, turnip, parsnip with herbs and shallots, garlic, and some fresh steamed green beans.

Okay, over and out! :lol:

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Tonight I am making grilled pork chops, crashed potatos and fresh steamed green beans. Plus homemade chocolate pudding for dessert, except it's more of a mousse texture.

They could be :D and if they are I can definitely relate.

But actually they are boiled potatoes that are smashed down a bit and baked with some seasonings, I found the recipe on this thread.

love it! I have always called mashed potatoes "smashed" since a child (they sound like they had a few martinis) but I have never heard of "crashed." I learn something new every day. ;)
