- Chicken noodle soup (w/homemade stock)
- Potato latkes
- Homemade applesauce
- Simple lasagne
- Stir-fried asparagus
- Steamed brocolini with basil and parmesan
- Buttermilk-cinnamon muffins
And then I was crazy and made, for us:
- Vegetable Pot Pie (with saffron cream sauce and homemade pastry)
- Lemon bars
Cooking today was fine, I thought it was going to be easy, but I botched a few things so it took longer than expected. Latkes turned out great, but I burned a batch. Muffins were slightly overdone (but still fine). Then I totally messed up the lemon bars and I'm not really sure about them, but they'll get eaten at work if nothing else!
Lesson: when making chicken soup (with low fat), take the skin off FIRST. Skimming is a pain. Also, I need a different baking pan if I'm going to make lemon bars again. This one was too low-sided. I'm not sure about the recipe, either. Hmm.
However, homemade applesauce is YUM!
