I knew I was behind on blogging, but gosh it's bad when you sit down and can't even remember what bread is in the picture.... I had to flip through the book.
Wheat Germ Bread - pretty basic whole wheat bread. I suppose it was made healthier by the wheat germ, but other than that, I wasn't really impressed. It was not one of the better basic bread recipes I've eaten.
Jambalaya sounds yummy to me, but I've always steered away from making it, because it usually calls for seafood and sausage, as well as Cajun seasoning. Somehow I thought you had to buy Cajun seasoning from down South. Then one Wednesday morning, I was looking for a recipe that used hot dogs and rice.
(I can't make up my mind about hot dogs. They're full of nasty stuff but they taste good and they're cheap. -sigh- So I buy a few packages on sale and then go for months vowing never to buy them again.)
Anyway, I found a recipe that called for hot dogs, rice, onion, canned tomatoes, and Cajun seasoning, and it sounded good. I looked online for Cajun seasoning recipes and lo and behold, the ingredients were exactly the same as a seasoning mix I keep pre-made to sprinkle on chicken and fish. The recipe (which I can't find now, sorry!) turned out very tasty.
It's basically a can of diced tomatoes with a diced and cooked onion, and as much Cajun seasoning as you want, plus rice and hot dog slices.
I was making a smoothie and suddenly a piece broke on my Bosch. It was very tragic but fortunately the Bosch store had a replacement part. My model was discontinued a couple of decades ago, so you just never know....
I've been re-filling the freezer. I pitted and froze our cherry crop, and I'm about to freeze a couple heads of celery I found on sale. I made corn dog muffins again. They're good with ketchup. Nathan says to tell you, "They're delicious, as usual."
It's canning season, too. I bought a lug of peaches and they should be ready to can on Monday. :-)
