|Where did this week go? Seriously, it has flown by. I hate it when that happens because I always feel like it's time I will never get back. I don't feel like I have accomplished anything in particular other than kicking that upper respiratory infection out! I will take that though! Since I never get sick...I felt like a big baby with this one. It sounds like everyone has it though. Just so everyone knows, I love ya, but I don't need to share this kind of stuff with you. So, if you have it...don't share!
Now, food. Um, was I supposed to cook? I guess I have done a little here and there...nothing major. I was so freakin' happy when I got the Crofter's supply at my doorstep! I took no time opening that up. I have decided on one jar at a time. We have a problem here with opening jars of jam/jelly/preserves and then not eating them. I don't think there will be a problem with that with the Crofter's jars. I started with Europe. This one is a mix of black current and pomegranite with cherries and grapes. It is YUMMY...that's what it is! I realize this is not cooking, but I did toast the bread...
Look at all the chunks of fruit in it! Just so ya know, I am not really a "jelly" fan. I like texture to my food, so I love preserves and jams. Also, I am not a super sweet person (well, I am, but my food...not so much) so this is right up my alley. You can actually taste the fruit. All organic and natural ingredients. So, I will be throwing globs of this stuff on anything I can!
(Max kept poppingh his head in these, so I am posting this picture...just for him. His faux hawk head is on top of the jar.)
Oh and I made the Carrot Lentil Stew again this week. I threw everything in the pot and let it cook for an hour. It really hit the spot! I love simple things like this when you don't feel like standing in the kitchen for hours on cooking and cleaning dishes! I decided to put some cabbage slaw in my soup at the last minute, so I microwaved a couple of handfuls of the cabbage in my bowl and then ladled the soup on top. So good! I have eaten' this for the rest of the week.
Then I decided to put hot sauce on it. Seriously, isn't everything better with hot sauce???
I am really looking forward to this weekend! Sunshine tomorrow!!! I hope everyone has a good weekend!
