Martha Stewart that is.
One of my goals for January was to (try) and make a new recipe every week. Well folks, I made two new recipes in less than 24 hours. For those of you who do not know me, that is huge. I
hate loathe cooking. I don’t know what it is about cooking, but I would rather pour milk in my cereal and have it in 2 minutes, than slave in the kitchen for 2 hours. Just saying.
Well, I tried cooking and it was O.K. I guess… Part of me just wanted to pitch the idea and just make a PB&J, but I persevered and made dinner. It wasn’t anything special, and I don’t have pictures. I was to frustrated with my simple dinner to take pictures. I could have cried. I made Southwest style quesadillas. I made my way to the grocery store, half starved to death, to get food for my dillas. To make them it is pretty simple.
Corn & Black Beans
I had to call my mom to figure out how to boil a chicken breast. Is that even how you say it? Boil? Whatever, that is what I did. Once “it turned white, and isn’t pink in the middle,” I took it out and shredded the chicken. Then I made my dilla! It was actually very, very delicious. I also had a side salad. AKA: Shredded lettuce and a little bit of dressing. I was pretty excited for actually making something.
Just pretend this is what it looked like. K?
My second recipe of the day was 5 ingredient peanut butter granola bars. I found this recipe on How Sweet It Is. Jessica has a great blog all about food, and how to make it. I knew I was going to have to try them once I saw this recipe. If you want to learn how to make them yourself click here. She does a great job of explaining it!
My new apron that my mom gave me! Never in my life would I have ever thought I would wear one of these…
I made the mistake of adding in the chocolate chips BEFORE the hot, melted peanut butter. So the PB kind of melted the CC, and I have chocolate/peanut butter granola bars.
They taste like no bake cookies. Really good. I was shocked.
Sadie and I are now waiting for Sally to get here!
