Thank God it's almost Thursday!!


Happy almost THURSDAY! I love Thursdays...Guess why? 'Cause it's soo close to Friday....which is sooooo close to Saturday...which is....my favorite day of the week....which is also the day of the week I was born...which could be the reason I like vegetating so much....as you can see I'm in a very "whichy" mood...

While I work on my next recipe for my blog....here are some more pics of food we enjoyed last weekend.

Last Friday's Dinner
 Steamed French Green Beans with Organic Butter
Mashed Potatoes
Roasted Leg of Lamb
 

 

Withering Flowers on my table...still beautiful...
Saturday's Dinner
 Spanakopita
Spinach and Cheese in Phyllo Dough
 ...and no, I didn't make it...if I could, I would probably have my own cooking show..:-)
These are great All Natural appetizers which you can purchase at BJ'S...or Costco...

Grilled Portabella Mushrooms

Veggie Jasmin Fried Rice with Left over Turkey...


Now on to my bread story....Please tell me you have at least tried my bread recipe!!..I worked so hard on it and it is sooo good!! Please try it..please....If you have..or haven't, here is a variation.....

I made my bread recipe two times over the Thanksgiving weekend...and doubled the recipe each time....While making it, I had an AHA moment...a butter, cinnamon, sugar moment to be precise...before rolling it up, I added a generous amount of cinnamon and sugar and added dots of butter (and you could probably add dark raisins too)......

Fast forward two hours...I left my husband in charge of taking it out of the oven...this was about midnight last Wednesday....the first thing he did on Thursday morning was apologize for eating half of the cinnamon loaf...and then he proceeded to eat the other half....and then I made it again...and among 5 kids it almost finished in less than 5 mins! I literally had to hide a piece for the hubby! It disappeared like hot bread!!!  [......oh, it IS hot bread....sorry..]



If this loaf looks kinda flat, it's because one of the five kids in the house at the time poked it (after it had risen so nicely for a second time which I was so proud and happy about)...and soon after I lectured them not to come near the dough...or touch it...or even look at it...Next time I am keeping my mouth shut...or maybe I should use reverse psychology and tell them to poke it....hmmmm..

Hope you have gotten a meal idea or two from this post,
Until next time,
[Which hopefully will be soon....]
