My Lent challenge…it didn’t last too long. I made it to Saturday when I was having a very long day and a friend upset me and I turned to rugelach for comfort. While I am not downing sweets every day, I did fail in making it to my goal. But I plan on continuing. After today. I needed oreos. I blame my ovaries. TMI. Sorry.
I have made some meals from my cookbooks. From Mario Batali’s The Babbo Cookbook, I made Pappardelle Bolognese for some friends Sunday night. Wine was uncorked, salad was tossed, and some of Pioneer Woman’s Hard Sauce (made with Rum) was thrown on a Swedish Apple Cake. Oops. Yeah, there was more sweets. But it was for my friends! And we all enjoyed it. Tonight I made the Norwegian meatloaf from Beatrice Ojakangas’s Scandinavian Cooking. I didn’t have one spice for it and reading other recipes, I had plan on adding another. It was good, but still needs some tweaking and definitely need to try it with tonight’s AWOL ingrediate. I also don’t plan on adding all the ketchup and other sauces that are featured in American meatloafs. I really need to update my goals list soon.
