First I want to mention something that I made last Sunday. I made a red velvet pie. OMG it has taken the place of my favorite pie for the time being. It was so good!!! Even though I almost cut my thumb off in the process it all turned out great.
Then Thursday I was rather ambitious. I made the Pioneer Woman's "Spread" which is a basic giant cookie topped with chocolate and what ever toppings you have on hand. I also made a balsamic vinaigrette. I made the "Spread" for bible study I came home with 2 pieces left in the box which my dad then devoured. I made the vinaigrette just as an encouragement for me to eat more salads and to play around with different flavor profiles. I ended up not having any lettuce/spinach to try my dressing on so I marinated some chicken in it and cooked it and put it over rice. It was really good.
Friday I had a hankering for oatmeal raisin cookies. So I set out in my vast collection of cookbooks to find a good cookie recipe. I was looking in a cookbook from 1964 and I found a recipe that sounded good so I gave it a try. It didn't have oatmeal in it but it was still really good and was nice to use a cookbook I haven't used before.
