Homemade panini sandwiches for lunch today! WOW it was really good. I added white bread, Virginia ham, honey smoked turkey, steakhouse seasoned bacon, garlic cheese, tomato, and chipotle ranch. It only took a few minutes and was super yummy. If you are in a lunch rut this would be a great way to dress up a sandwich.
These two words just make my mouth water. I made these yesterday changing the recipe just a little. I added extra honey in the baking time about 1.5 tbsp more than was stated in the recipe. They were pretty good. I would follow the original recipe for timing. But I was trying to get them done at the same time as the rest of our meal. Which is something I have not mastered yet (after 9 years of cooking). Something is always ready a long time before something else. So these sat on the counter to rise longer than they were supposed to.
I hope you take some time today to make something homemade!
Today’s lunch! We had build your own salad with our home grown sprouts.
My salad had: lettuce, tomato, onion, black olives, sprouts, blue cheese, shredded cheese, boiled eggs, croutons, bacon bits, and Ken’s steak house lite sweet Vidalia onion dressing! Wow! It was amazing.
I think they will be prefect tomorrow on a salad! I can’t wait to try them. Good things come to those they wait…. At least that is what they say. And of course like normal rinse and drain x2!
The little guys aren’t so little anymore! I am excited to try them on a salad in the next couple of days. Of course as usual I rinsed them and drained them well this morning and tonight. So far it looks like I am doing ok.
We will soon find out how they taste and if anyone else in my house will eat them lol.
The sprouts are getting pretty big. I am trying to decide when I will start harvesting them and I still have not found recipes I am excited to try with them. Of course once again I rinsed them this morning and tonight and I will again on the morning! Happy sprouting
Today I made apple sauce in the crockpot! This is probably going to be weird to many but this is one of those items I didn’t know you could make from home. I feel silly even saying it but I don’t think I have ever had homemade apple sauce….. Well until today.
I peeled then chopped up 5 ( I think) apples and a pear, put them in a crockpot and added a cup of water and sprinkled it heavily with cinnamon. I turned it on I think low ( the knob on my crock pot is broken) for about 3-4 hours and then took a little of the liquid out but I think you could leave it in. And mashed it up. As I write this it is cooling waiting to go in the fridge and we will have it with lunch tomorrow 🙂
I must say even though I tasted it warm it was pretty good. I was skeptical to not put sweetener in but I am glad I didn’t it is sweet enough without. And that is saying a lot considering how much I enjoy sweet stuff.
So if you have extra apples that are close to going bad or would just love some homemade apple sauce give it a try! And if you do let me know what you think!
