We had soup, salad, bread & baked potatoes for dinner last night. I started making the salad & just had to take a picture of the non-lettuce part of it.
How colorful it is! Too bad it’s all store-bought veggies (boooo!); but hopefully by this summer, I’ll be able to replicate it with our own produce.
Yukon Mike over at Living Prepared posted a recipe for some Whole Wheat Oatmeal Cookies about a week ago. I didn’t read the entire post as I was mesmerized by the pictures he took of the cookies, but I saved the page for future reference. I was in a cookie-making mood yesterday so I pulled up the page and managed to take my eyes off the cookie pictures long enough to write down the recipe.
After I went into the kitchen to assemble the needed ingredients, I noticed that I missed writing down an ingredient or two; namely the butter and eggs parts. Hmmm. I must have still had half my brain looking at the cookie pictures and the other half only barely managing to fire off enough neurons to make my hand pick up the pen and scribble down his recipe.
So I pulled the page back up on the computer to copy the recipe correctly this time. But alas, I had copied the recipe accurately. Had I taken the time to read his entire post (instead of fixating on the cookie pics), I would have known that the butter / eggs omission was in fact, on purpose.
It was his intention to make a cookie recipe using dry storage foods. Now how cool is that?
You can check out the recipe (and some cookie porn) on his blog by clicking "Here".
Oh, I did make the cookies.
And now I’m going to have to shake off my keyboard as there are still crumbs all over it.
