What's for Dinner


This evening for dinner I tried just roasting the Butternut Squash in a little Olive oil and seasoned with minced garlic and salt & pepper. This was my the first attempt and I think I needed to add a little more seasoning. 
Next time I will.
It has been my week of flops.
 Saturday I thought I would make some Irish Soda Bread for St. Patrick's day. Mixed it, and put it in the oven and it had been in the oven nearly the complete time for baking when I realized I put baking powder instead of baking soda in my bread.


Needless to say it didn't rise and when cooled down it was hard as a rock. But when it came out of the oven "the Man of the Place" who was being so sweet because he could tell I was very disappointed in myself, said he wanted a piece anyway since I went to all that trouble. If you could of only seen his expression as he was choking it down. The chickens sure enjoyed it the next day.

  1. Don't feel too bad about the bread. I mis-read the pressure cooker instructions for the corned beef (first time in a pressure cooker for me) and dinner was two hours late! My hubby was really sweet about it and it did taste good once it was on the table. Of course by then an old boot would have tasted good!

  2. Today was my epic fail day for cooking -- and it was my husband's birthday, too! The rustic apple tart oozed all its juice into the baking sheet, and the bison burgers were too sloppy and fell apart. Ack! He had a second helping though and claimed it was delicious. I love him. :)

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
