Although our air conditioning went out sometime between yesterday afternoon and this morning, the day still wasn’t too bad.
The day started by being able to sleep in a little, which is always nice.
Then I had decided last night to make some scones today. After finding my scone cookbook (yes, I have a cookbook for just about anything), buttermilk with craisins jumped out at me. My scone pan is for 16 mini-scones. Thank goodness I weighed out the total dough and divided by 16. Otherwise I might not have had enough for each well. My visual estimating when it comes to spatial things just isn’t a strength.
After waiting for the house to cool a little, I made some bread. Even with the bread maker out of commission, I’m still trying to make a loaf (need to get the bread book a friend recommended) rather than buying bread. Oh, by the way, I did get a compliment on the newly tried hamburger buns. I may try bread flour next time though to see if they come out a little lighter.
Made my first harvest from the gardens. The butter ball lettuce, Paris white lettuce, two beets, and a jalapeño pepper were ready to be harvested. There was a lot of lettuce, so I found a recipe to pickle it and use as a side, or in a salad. Can’t wait to try it. Some was set aside for sandwiches or regular salad too.
Today also marked the end of my Pampered Chef Party. I want to give a special thanks to Jennifer for all of her support this week, and for hosting a demo party for us. Throughout the week I’ve gotten to know friends, family, and neighbors better through humorous and fun ways. Plus I got a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing to try as well (a big hit in our house the last couple of days).
I invite each of you to think about throwing a party of your own. Please reach out to me and I’ll reach out to Jennifer for you, or you can reach out to her directly, if you’d like to throw a Pampered Chef Party. I highly recommend it and the things a host can get make it worthwhile in addition to the fun with friends and family. Make sure to invite me as I’m sure I’ll find something I can order to support you as you’ve supported me.
A big huge grand thank you to everyone who was able to place an order.
Because of your generosity I was able to meet my goal to be able to order an air fryer, and the husband is getting the Ultimate Soup & Smoothie Blender to make his beloved red chili sauce (which the family enjoys as well). I can’t wait to use my new toys. Hopefully you had fun, and again, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
