It’s 4:15 on Sunday evening and three of the four of us are still in our pajamas. I could tell you that I’m so over Daylight Saving time, or what I guess is the end of Daylight Saving time, but I’ll just direct you here, to Swistle’s spot-on post about this infuriating day.
This week I didn’t make anything new or spectacular for dinner, but I did make two things totally worth repeating.
I’m not sure that I’ve ever had a Parkerhouse Roll before, and I’ve certainly never made a bread with this much work (kneading, rising, kneading, waiting, folding, waiting,) but it was so worth it and I will definitely repeat it. This recipe made a lot of rolls, so I’m on the hunt for one that will make a smaller batch. (No, I am not interested in doing the math to reduce the recipe myself.) Even my husband, who isn’t the bread addict that I am, gave these two buttery thumbs up.
Apple Crisp (I only used four large apples, rather than the eight the recipe suggested. I used an eight inch pan, and with that number of apples, plus the topping, the pan was full.)
This wasn’t what I expected it to be, but it was good. It was good straight out of the oven topped with ice cream, and it was good when I dug a rather large spoonful out of the pan in the refrigerator this afternoon. I was looking for something a little bit more oat-y than this? Maybe you can read my mind since I’m not explaining it well, and you can direct me toward a new recipe. I still have a TON of apples left. Still, this was easy, and only used a few ingredients that I’m pretty likely to always have on hand, so I’ll probably be making it again.
Now the weather is gloriously cold, and is supposed to stay that way for the rest of the week, so I’m looking for warm and hearty things for dinner this week. I think I’ll be starting with this chicken stew.
