Maybe it is all part of nesting, or maybe it is because I have been off for over a week and have regained some energy, but I have been cooking up a storm.
Monday I made the Barefoot Contessa's Coconut Cupcakes for a potluck New Year's Eve party as well as Bran Muffins for the freezer (cross that off the pre-baby to do list).
Tuesday for diner we had meatball sandwiches. I made the meatballs (of course) and 2 pouinds extra for the freezer (also crossed off the to-do list). I even made the rolls to put the meatballs on. Hubby had bought me the Bread Bible Cookbook and I used the Whole Wheat Sesame Long Roll recipe. Boy were they good!
Last night I made Orange Peel Chicken and served it with brown jasmine rice (purchased at Trader Joes) and steamed broccoli. It was really good, there were hardly any leftovers, I really feel like I haven't eaten chicken in forever and have been craving it recently.
Tonight I will be making one of my favorite meals which is oven fried talapia (my version of a Weightwatchers Recipe for Fish and Chips, minus the chips) served with cheddar grits (I use real cheddar cheese not processed cheese crap and add a dash of tabasco to bring out the cheese flavor) and roasted artichoke hearts. Yum!
