Refried beans are pretty much a staple in our house. We eat a lot of mexican food and it is a must have, side dish to every meal. When we get low, I always make up another big ol’ pot of them, because running out, is never an option.
Coming to you again, from my yeast filled kitchen, is yet another bread recipe. And why not!? I am a fan of the Pioneer Woman, follow her blog and recipes, and also enjoy a few of her ‘food & friends’ as well. Here’s a great one!
I have an on again, off again relationship with certain vegetables, and asparagus is one of them. I do like it, but it’s got to have something special about it for me to really want it, and enjoy it. You can’t just boil it, put it on a plate and expect me to eat it.
2 new things came together for me this week, to create a third new thing, which was a new recipe. The recipe turned out great, which meant the first two things were essential to the outcome of the third thing, and therefore are also great. Thing one, and thing two, coming together, as two things joined as one, to create a third thing. You still with me? Fantastic.
Do you ever look at beets in the produce aisle and think “those look pretty, but nah, too much work?” I sometimes do, because of the time and mess they create, but when I’m really craving them or my husband asks for them, I always take the time, because it’s so very worth the effort.
I’m writing about bread again. I will never make apologies for this, but sometimes I think I should have called Scarlett Homestead something like “Yeasty Pastures” for all the bread making I’ve done lately.
We love Mexican food in our house and two out of the three of us love a good dessert. I say two, because Rob, being the third, will almost always take a second portion of the dinner and have that as his dessert. Me and Judah however, will always have room for something sweet. He definitely gets that from me, and it is one of the things that make him my son, without a doubt.
I am not a food blogger, and you will probably recognize that as you read through my attempt to make this sound like I know what I’m doing, but I’ll give it a try! I do however really love to cook. I’m not professional and I most definitely am not a great baker, but I can hold my own and I have had a lot of practice over the past three and a half years since becoming a stay at home mum.
