Tonight I poached 2 chicken breast in my Demarle Fluted Square Mold. I sauteed some beautiful green beans with chopped sweet onions and garlic. Yum! I made a loaf of challah on my Silpat too. I didn’t give it enough time to rise so it wasn’t as fluffy as I like it to be. I divided the batch of dough into 2 parts. I made “challahettes” with the second part of dough, they are sitting in my Demarle Muffin Tray in the freezer right now. When I am ready to cook them, I’ll let them defrost/rise for a couple of hours and then bake them right in the muffin tray in a preheated oven.
I’m working on my grocery list for next week. I’m going to ride my bike the Farmer’s Market tomorrow (a day early, but the market only comes once a week!) I am working on a way to track bulk/staple items v.s. weekly eating items. Since I am baking more items (muffins, biscuits, cookies) I am going thru butter like crazy. I am also getting really low on raw milk, and since I spent over $60 on it just 2 weeks ago, I’m wondering how to justify buying more so soon. I did make 2 batches of cream cheese with it; I still have a lot of it left. But I really want to make my own yogurt. And kefir. And possibley butter. Time to start working My Costs page.
