I have great expectations for 2014, but that doesn’t mean I need to race through each day like a madwoman. That madwoman racing has led me in strange directions I have come to realize.
I snuck out to visit a friend before it got really cold.
I tried to keep wrestling to a minimum.
We sat by the fire.
A snow day to follow didn’t make me want to cry at the end of winter break.
This is a good sign.
It was a good day.
Here are key pieces worthy of your time:
– Pioneer Woman’s burgundy mushrooms are so amazing (especially if you like crusty bread)
– roast in a wine sauce slow and low at 200 for most of the day covered is melt in your mouth amazing. I am waiting for a piece of meat to prove me wrong but it hasn’t happened yet.
– the five ingredient flourless chocolate cake was a great idea and SO easy!
LIke, THIS easy: melt 2 sticks butter, add 1/4 C cocoa or dark chocolate and stir it in, add 1/2 t baking pdr, 1C sugar (I might try honey next time), and 6 eggs. Bake at 325 for 40 minutes. I dusted it with powdered sugar and it was simply divine.
A great day doesn’t have to be about moving mountains.
