Can I get a what whatâ€¦I lived in the kitchen today, all the way from breakfast to dessert, I baked like crazy!! I have been wanting take another shot at making my own bread again, first time it was not the best. But tonight it came out perfect!
I present to you, Honey Whole Wheat Bread at itâ€™s finest took me over 3 hours to make(I am so asking Santa for a bread maker!), but it was so worth the wait!!
I of course made two batches one for the Birthday dinner I threw, and the other for this week to eat!
I also baked some yummy treats for our Motherâ€™s Day Potluck but I will feature those on tomorrows post.
I asked my Cousin what her favorite meal was, and she said to make anything I wanted to make the sky was the limit! So I decided on the classic Chicken Pot Pie the healthy way of course. For an easy appetizer I made some Bruschetta topped with EVOO,Parm, and diced tomatoes with oregano baked at 350 degrees for 6 minutes. These were a huge hit, I enjoyed two while I waited for guests.
I also set up a nice little drink bar for guests to enjoy some TJâ€™s Strawberry Lemonade, and other adult beverages of course.
This pot pie was so easy to make, I loved it because it was packed with veggies and you can portion it out for two as well.
The inside goodness:
My Aunt was a doll and brought a delicious salad filled with strawberries, veggies, pecans, grapes, and pears! I almost forgot to snap a pic so I had eaten a bit before I took this pic, but hereâ€™s what was left.
The party went really well everyone loved the meal(they had no idea it was healthy) and were almost too stuffed for cake until I brought it out.
I made Texas Sheet cake from Cooking Light. WOW, it tasted like molten lava cake but better! I am not a big cake lover, but this tasted so moist and kind of like a brownie! I wish I would have bought vanilla ice-cream to go with it, oh well next time.
My portion: Blurred thatâ€™s how I felt after a glass of wine
The Birthday Girl!
The party people!
Celina and I are like sisters, I adore my cousin she is a God send! We were each others Maid of Honors and have been through soooo much together!
I have two more parties to go to tomorrow and then I get to relax, well you know me I will probably doing something to keep busy!
Stay tuned to hear how everyone is doing in the TSL Challenge tomorrow! Everyone pulled in big numbers this week and I got some great ideas for everyone on how to live a more simple/green life!
I am so wiped out itâ€™s 11:30pm which means I have been up for over 19 hours and running off 4 hours of sleep, I am so SLEEPING IN tomorrow!!!!
