I am making up for it this weekend by making a gagillion things at once in my tiny little kitchen. It's like Thanksgiving in the home of my favorite blogger, NeNe. Here's what's going down:
- Burner One: Pinto Beans and Sausage
- Burner Two: Stew
- Burner Three: Double Boiler of chocolate
- Burner Four: Bacon.
- Oven: Sugar Cookie trial batch for snowflake cookie sales.
- Microwave: Carmel sauce.
- The Fridge...is very very afraid.
We just spent a ton on groceries, despite doing much better with stacking our coupons. I am determine not to waste any food this go round. So, today starts the cooking for the week so we can pack some of the leftovers away for another time.
Right now, the bacon candy is in the fridge hardening up, but I couldn't resist breaking off a bit to show you and um...consume unmercifully. Here it is.
|I wish I wouldn't have tried it, I might eat it all before I can sell it.|
On a side note, I am not advocating the eating of raw dough, but I had a teensy taste of the sugar cookie dough and almost died in a flavor coma. It was like sugared butter. I don't know if these cookies are going to get far from my kitchen. I was going to decorate them in royal icing and sugar pearls, then wrap them in the cellophane bags and give them away as Christmas gifts to coworkers. I am going to have to rethink my plans here. The original recipe said that it make 60 cookies. I probably should have made the whole recipe instead of cutting down to two dozen. There's no way I could have eaten all 60...right?
Are you preparing any special recipes to give away as gifts for Christmas?
