No So Boring Oatmeal For Tonight...

  I'm going to make a Huge pot of oatmeal in the crock pot and when it's done, I'm going to toss in one packet on flavored Instant Oatmeal. I think that it's Maple and Brown Sugar... but I bought it a few weeks ago. Anyway, as much as I like oatmeal, I have to admit that it can be pretty tasteless.  I don't know if one pack will be enough, but then again, I don't need something to be as sweet as I once did. Just a smidgen actually works for me!!

 
My Day So Far... Will this ever end??   Time to do some snow shoveling and then I think that I will peruse an old cookbook for some new recipes to try this week. I hate using the same recipes over and over again!!

I think that I began to love quotes when I began to thumb through my mom's Women's Day magazines. They always devoted an entire page to quotes that were sent in by their readers. They were so thought provoking. I always looked forward to reading them.

Fried Spinach Sauce For Pasta

And you thought that tomato sauce was the only thing that you could toss over a bowl full of spaghetti. My husband just made the best sauce using onions, garlic, garlic and  a few handfuls of spinach and whatever savory spices that you grab first... Fry everything together and then toss into a blender and whirl until you have a sauce. Before serving add some Parmesan cheese.  It's pretty impressive for just how easy it is!!

* I have been banned from the kitchen after my last batch of cookies where I tried to melt the butter, the egg and vanilla together with no one knowing. I had to fish bits of egg that had managed to get cooked, before I could mix into the dry ingredients. The recipe should have said... set aside the sugars so that they can be mixed in with the butter.  Instead, all ingredients were all mixed in together and my mind really wasn't on what I was doing!

Found my old Kitchen Witch!


Haven't seen her in years. I guess that is what you get for moving a lot. Hubby has that kind of job and it looks as if we are about to be sent to a new location. Just waiting for an update. But, as I was clearing out some boxes that were still half full, I found the old Kitchen Witch that I had made so many years ago. I don't think that I will hang her in this house, but will be sure to label the box so I can put it up... where ever we are sent to next!!

My Scrambled Egg Cookies ... Big Mistake!

That is there new name lol. They were once called Chocolate Chip Oatmeal, but I didn't read the instructions properly and had to melt the butter, the egg and the vanilla and water in the microwave for the liquids. I was suppose to whip the sugars and butter, but tossed the sugar into the dry ingredients. OOpss...  Needless to say, as I was melting the butter, the egg began to cook, leaving tiny slivers of egg white in the cookie dough. I hoped that no one would notice... but they did lol. Cookies tasted great but they now have a new name!  Won't forget next time ;)

More on my microwave...

Speaking of microwaves... see Jan 18,  when they first arrived on the scene everyone was using them for EVERYTHING.  I even remember going out and buying a cookbook with recipes for just about everything you could imagine. I don't think that I have opened that cookbook in years. Now we pretty much use it for heating things up and making popcorn.

Thursday

Couldn't hold out...

 Hubby came home with a microwave from Costco yesterday and it was cheaper than the last one we bought for the previous house. Luckily, one came with this house when we bought it and it lasted nearly two years. Have no idea how old it was when we arrived... but the price this time around was really good. And yes, we have already used it!

No Microwave... Now What??

Our microwave blew up yesterday.. our kitchen still smells horrible! Other than that, it's  amazing how much you come to rely on it!  To think that we grew up, not even knowing what one was!  Not sure how long before we will be heading to the city to buy another one.  I don't think that we will last a weed!
