Yes, I realize I haven’t posted any new recipes in the last two weeks. My excuse is that I was totally sick over Christmas and as a result tried to stay out of the kitchen to prevent my plague from spreading.
I did make a couple of new things.
1) Good friend Laura and I tried a new recipe out of the Cooking Light Cookbook she gave me for Christmas (excellent present), but it was for a family dinner she was having the next day so I don’t actually know how it turned out. It smelled really good. The raw batter tasted good. The glaze tasted good. Let’s cut a girl some slack and call it 33 Years in the Kitchen – Missing Week 25. Maybe Laura will comment and tell us how the Warm Gingerbread with Lemon Glaze turned out?
2) Because I was still recovering from said plague and not up to going out proper, G and I had a couple of good friends over on NYE to drink, snack and play the Wii (more to come on the Wii later). I bought a bunch of appetizers from Trader Joe’s (they were out of my favorite, the goat cheese and caramelized onion puff pastry tarts, wtf?) and then made a quick cheese dip that involved 1 block Velveeta, melted; 1 can refried beans and 1 can diced tomatoes with olive oil and garlic. I drained the tomatoes and mixed them with the other ingredients in a crock pot and it was heavenly. So, we’re going to call that 33 Years in the Kitchen – Missing Week 26.
Now, I promise to get back on track this week. I don’t know what I’m going to make yet, but I’m confident it will be amazing.
