Eliminating recipes

The recipe pile to try is getting much smaller – only 11 left. Which means it’s time to go through and finally admit that I will just not make some of these things. Now usually, I get 2 or 3 more out of my binders this way. This time however, there’s just the one – Chocolate Buttercream Icing. I just don’t make cakes in need of frosting that often. And with chocolate in the recipe, really it’s just for Adam’s birthday. Speaking of whom, when I said I was going to be tossing this one went ‘no! I want to make it!’

So…. it’s out of my binders but not into the recycling bin.

The plus side to going through all the recipes in the queue is that it brings the interesting things I’ve forgotten about to the front. Which totally leads to having a plan to make Avocado Sushi, Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins, and Raspberry Danishes (using the wonderful berry syrup Adam made based on the Splendid Table ‘recipe’ from episode Adobo Road [I think]). Because we randomly have an Avocado from Adam making guacamole.

Annnnnnnnd the the grocery store doesn’t have any rhubarb in stock.




Sorry guys – there was going to be brownie pops today, but Adam’s work is on about week two of 12-14 hour work days and his brain went on strike last night. Next week though will be my next attempt at Winter Berry Pie and the Brownie Pops.

Sickness and Blog Post missings

As the above title may indicate, what with being more oblique and obtuse than is my usual wont, and the fact that I missed posting something for y’all today – I’m fighting a bug, to the point of not going in to work today (Tuesday).

So, have a picture of some roasted butternut squash
