Catching up after the weekend
Well, I got some good cooking in this weekend so I wanted to give you all a quick update. Well, lets start with I think I could have gained 30 pounds this weekend since everything was super full of fat.
First off, we made homemade pizza of Friday. The dough and sauce recipe were from a coworker and we really liked it. We got a little pepperoni happy and had to do a little grease sopping before we could eat it. Don't get me wrong, it tasted damn good, we just need to keep our pepperoni cravings in check when making pizza.
Then last night, Sunday, I finally overcame my Joy of Cooking Curse. I made 2 recipes from it and they both turned out great. I did make some simple roasted carrots for Bob as well.
Beef Stroganoff and Sauteed Mushrooms
Well, I also shelled out the $7 for Martha Stewart's Holiday Cookie magazine. And God help me I am going to make stuff out of it for that kind of money. These turned out really good, but I think Funkbobito was going to freak out when the butter and sugar kept getting all jammed up in the mixer beaters. But all came together well and here's how they looked.
Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies
