Well, today has been fun. Even though we couldn’t really get outside of our neighborhood, it was great because we were able to just spent time together.
Me, Nick, Maggie, and Roxy.
We talked to our neighbors, played in the snow, took naps, and enjoyed the day.
Nick and I made a strata for dinner!
They’re his new favorite thing. :)
I typically buy Eggland’s Best eggs anyways, but I was happy to get even more and use them tonight! They really are the best eggs.
While the oven was preheating, Nick cooked some bacon for the strata and I chopped some onions, scallions, and roasted red peppers.
After the bacon was cooked, he sauteed the veggies along with some cremini mushrooms until they were all softened.
We added the veggies to 1/2 a loaf of Nature’s Pride Honey Wheat bread that I cubed. Then I mixed 6 Eggland’s Best eggs with about 1/2 cup of milk, salt, pepper, and oregano.
We poured the eggs over the bread/veggie mixture, sprinkled it with 1/2 cup or so of cheese and baked it at 375 for about 30 minutes.
So good and so easy! I love that you can put anything in a strata – it’s so versatile.
We had our strata with some broccoli for a quick dinner.
Why so quick?
Well…because I had cookies in the oven :)
I made MORE Supercharge Me Cookies tonight!
A double batch – and this time, I used creamy peanut butter and dark chocolate chips (instead of the normal almond butter and carob or semi-sweet).
I decided to try the recipe with peanut butter after Heather recommended it the other day, and we love them! They smelled amazing while they were baking away in the oven, and I think the dark chocolate chips go perfectly with the peanut butter.
On top of the cookie dough in this house, I also have some sourdough getting ready for tomorrow.
I’m so proud of my sourdough – it’s SO sour! I’m hoping to try another bread recipe tomorrow, so we’ll see how it turns out. The flavor is spot on – I just need to get enough practice to make my bread look good enough to eat ;)
And I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the sourdough, so I’ll be posting about that soon. Believe me – once you get your starter going, it’s so easy.
I think we may watch a movie tonight. We have Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang, and 500 Days of Summer from Netflix – I hope whatever we watch is good!
