Tonight was a quick and easy dinner of hamburgers on the grill, corn and sweet potatoes. As I mentioned earlier, my menus will probably be meat-heavy the next few weeks as we try to empty out the freezer to reduce the amount of foods we'll have to move.
As promised, here's the recipe for BLONDIES that I'll be making tonight for our two schools - we're bringing in treats for the teachers to help get them through parent/teacher conferences.
Thanks to Sweetnicks, I found out about some fun going on over at Cooking with Amy. They are revealing their deep, dark secrets about food, cooking, anything culinary.
I'm sure this list will grow as I think of them, but a few that come to mind easily:
I like Cool Whip better than real whipped cream.
I love Cheetos - those awful, but oh-so-tasty, processed little orange things.
Sometimes my fridge gets out of hand.
I have to wear gloves when hand-mixing ground beef for meatballs. Or when doing anything that involved prolonged contact with raw meat.
I hate, hate, hate almond extract. If I go to a cookie exchange, anything made with almond extract must be separated from the rest of the cookies so that the other cookies don't get tainted.
I cannot for the life of me make candy. If you have to boil anything to a certain color or temperature, I'm pretty much guaranteed to fail. Even the caramel I melted from a package slid off my apples this year.
I like those little sausage and Velveeta cheese appetizers. Mmmmmm....
I'm a cookie snob - real butter, not shortening (although a mixture of the two is acceptable, sometimes).
Cottage cheese makes me want to gag. I also can't eat yogurt.
I won't use minced garlic from a jar, but I have started using minced ginger from a jar.
I eat things in pairs (2 pieces, one for each side of the mouth). If they are colored, like M&Ms, I eat them in pairs of the same color. If they are different lengths, like french fries, I eat pairs of similar lengths.
I'm sure there's much more, but certainly I've embarassed myself enough.........
