I planned a lot of cooking this weekend, but I didn't get to all of it. The best laid plans....right?
Saturday was "National Pancake Day," so we celebrated with a dutch baby. What's that, you say? It's a puffy pancake that you cook in the oven in a cast-iron skillet. They're awesome, especially with strawberry jelly! Happy Pancake Day from our family to yours. :)
I made the two loaves of Apple Bread, as well as the apple pie and chili on Friday night. Then I just petered out....and put off anything else that I felt like making. The apple bread was the best-smelling apple bread ever! Such a heavy mix though....you couldn't even pour it from the mixing bowl to the loaf pan. The apple pie was out of this world!!! I've made many apple pies, and I still think the one from "The Joy of Cooking" is the best. It was so good, Brian and I had it with coffee for breakfast this morning. And the chili was of course great, with plenty of leftovers for Saturday and Sunday lunch. (I just love a meal with lots of leftovers!)
So...no chicken soup just yet. But there's chicken and apple tacos for dinner!
