Update on Weekend Baking and cooking
I did make the cornmeal cheddar waffles, but I did not use the recipe I linked to. I decided to take a "semi homemade" approach or as I like to think of it "use what you have on hand" approach. I used a box of Jiffy Corn Muffin mix and some already shredded cheddar cheese. There are instructions on the side of the box for how to make waffles from the mix, so I used those directions and then added the cheese. They were really good! I highly recommend this. They come out of the waffle iron soggy, but after sitting for a few minutes they get crisp and they reheat beautifully in the toaster oven.
I did not make the Ethiopian Chicken stew although I am sure that I will in the near future. I decided to make a vegetable soup with meatballs because, once again, it required things I had on hand. I have thawed some ground beef and it needed to be cooked and I had a plethora of frozen stock and and half bags of frozen veggies. I will post the recipe later, when I get home.
The brain cake I put on hold for the moment. Maybe next week. I did make a pumpkin Bundt cake for my mom using my pumpkin Bundt cake pan that I found at Goodwill for a steal.
