I had yesterday and today off work, so you can imagine what I’ve been doing.
When I’m not uploading wedding pictures to this album while listening to my husband practice violin, I’ve been doing some cooking.
Bogdan has been bugging me to make some homemade bread (other than pizza crust! haha), so I finally did yesterday. I used my sister Tammy’s recipe for wheat bread, and it was (and still is!) delicious and soft. I did the 100% whole wheat version, my only change being that I used maple syrup instead of honey because I’m out of honey at the moment.
For lunch today I decided to make spaghetti & meatballs, because I had some ground chuck I’d gotten at Meijer on Sunday for $1.99/lb. I used some for hamburgers on Sunday, froze some, and had some remaining. I only had one package of spaghetti and decided to save it, so instead of spaghetti noodles I used penne pasta. The only difference between pastas is the shape anyway, I figure.
Our lunch today
I had also gotten fresh broccoli on Sunday at Meijer, and used some for broccoli soup yesterday. Today I made some cooked broccoli on the side – a favorite of mine!
The only ingredients I used in the broccoli were –
– About 3 tablespoons of water
– About 1 tablespoon of butter
It doesn’t get better than that – cooked just until tender.
We don’t have many Independence Day plans, but my husband plays tonight in a concert for Lima Symphony. It’s a patriotic concert, of course. Maybe we should have some hotdogs for supper tonight to celebrate. 🙂
