On a happier note, to accompany my bread I made a delicious Bean with Bacon soup.
I altered the recipe a bit by using navy beans instead of lima beans. I also added my homemade chicken stock, a re-hydrated cayenne pepper, some frozen corn and 1 lb of cooked bacon. The great thing about this recipe is that I made it for under $10 and I still have at least 6 more meals worth with all the leftovers. As a dessert, I whipped up some Irish Cream to sip on while we watched Sunday Night Football.
This recipe is so easy and delicious that it will be a must for any holiday party you attend this season. Here's what you need:
1 Can Sweetened Condensed Milk (Eagle brand preferred)
1 Pint Non Dairy Creamer (Coffee-mate works great)
1 Cup Brandy
1/4 tsp Coconut Extract
2 T Chocolate Syrup
Mix all ingredients together and chill for 1 hour. Good for up to one month.
On the knitting front, I've been making some progress with all the Christmas projects that I have lined up. I say some because the book for this months book club is The Hunger Games and I have been having a difficult time putting it down. I need to get my butt in gear though since I have a large order from Webs that should be here tomorrow. The contents will be everything I need to finish up. Here's where I'm at with everything:
Mom - Sweater - DONE!
Tom - 2 Pairs of Socks - 1 down 1 to go!
Kenny - 5 Pairs of Socks - 3 Down 2 to go!
Caroline - Cowl - Half way done
Judy - Fingerless Mittens - Need to buy yarn
Julie - Sweater - Yarn will be in tomorrow.
In case I don't blog in the next few days, I would like to wish you and your family a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
