MY HOBBIES

I love to bake, I love to cook

I’d be much thinner, if I read a book.

This week has been busy with a lot of cooking and baking, and eating. My favorite pastimes.

One day, I roasted all the vegetables laying lonely and neglected in the bottom fridge crisper. The potatoes were starting to grow eyes and the onions were sprouting. I peeled, chopped, and drizzled with olive oil, garlic, then shake and bake.



Oh my goodness, they were so good. I almost ate half the pan. Then, the next day, I boiled some mostaccioli, and added the vegetables, a little more olive oil, Parmesan and mozzarella cheese and baked. Here’s my secret ingredient. I add about half a teaspoon of oil from jarred jalepeño peppers. It adds a little tang. Another fantastic meal, all made from food in the fridge and in the pantry.


Tuesday, I made the brownies for my firemen friends and a few neighbors.


Today, I went into the freezer and found two ziplock bags of brownie bites. When I have leftover brownies, ( I know that’s hard to believe) I cut them in half, mush them in my hand, and roll into small balls, then freeze. So, I decided to take those out and dip in melted chocolate, about thirty in all.(Minus a couple I had to taste test)  A nice treat to share with my support group. They enjoyed them, and it helped me free up a tiny bit more freezer space.



I always have a messy kitchen, but I also have a lot of friends who appreciate the mess.
