I had a blast!
I never thought I would find cooking and baking a good form of stress relief, but recently I absolutely have. I think it has something to do with feeling like I'm in a chemistry lab, except I have free reign to do whatever the hell I want without risk of blowing something up. Well...without AS MUCH risk, anyway. On Sunday's menu was a blueberry oatmeal bake, oatmeal raisin cookies, an avocado egg salad, and for dinner that night I made greek yogurt marinated chicken with balsamic sauteed mushrooms. Everything turned out incredibly tasty! All of it was a big hit with Nathan as well with the exception of the avocado egg salad, which he has not tried. That's just because I've been hogging it all for my lunches to take to work and he's not big on avocado anyway. Here's a rundown of the results! :)
|The oatmeal raisin cookies!! Nathan was pouting like a five year old when I was loading up the tupperware to take some to work. I still say I was doing us both a favor, considering the batch made 3 dozen.|
|Blueberry oatmeal bake. FANTASTIC breakfast if you like blueberries.|
|Oatmeal raisin batter. I may or may not have sampled some before baking.....(I did.)|
|Avocado egg salad. It may not look appetizing, but it's very yummy.|
|Ok, I know this picture comes off as "look.....mushrooms...." but trust me, the picture does not do them justice.|
|The greek yogurt marinated chicken. May not look like much either, but was also very very yummy.|
