What's For Dinner?

One thing that I want to work on is listening more - talking less. When those two are switched, I seem to either get myself in trouble or end up looking stupid. (Which after years of experience of making myself look ridiculous, I have learned to accept those times with grace). 

Nonetheless - Talk Less. Listen More. Or at least, carefully examine what i'm going to speak, before it gets spoken.

Conclusion - cooking doesn't require talking. Just smelling, tasting and drooling.
Here's what I've been cooking...

(I may use a Chuck Roast instead because I don't have any brisket)

Famous Dave's Corn Muffins by Top Secret Restaurant Recipes (Makes 1 dozen)
1 3/4 c. cornmeal
1 3/4 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
3/4 t. salt
1/4 t. baking soda
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter
1/2 t. vanilla
3/4 c. milk
1/4 c. buttermilk
1/3 c. vegetable oil
3 T. honey

  • Preheat oven to 400 (I used 350 because they got really dark at 400)
  • Grind cornmeal at high speed in food processor for 5 minutes. Pour all the cornmeal in large bowl with flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda and milk.
  • Cream eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla.
  • Combine wet and dry ingredients. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Fill muffin cups
  • Bake 20-25 minutes.

Monster Cookies (Esther Shank Cookbook - page 167)
Cinnamon Rolls (I am using a friends recipe; however, I usually use the one in the red Mennonite cookbook - page 8 and use the delicious caramel frosting on page 10)

For breakfast, we are having toasted English muffins with apple butter (that, if I had to guess, is 5 years old. Still good though!)

Happy Monday!
