First off, Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful Mom, and to all of you Moms out there. I hope you all have had a wonderful day.
This morning, I decided to shop my pantry/cupboards/fridge for this week's new-to-me recipe. And since I wanted to get caught up on my resolution, I decided to make two recipes again.
The past few days have been rainy and gloomy, so I decided this morning to take the slow cooker out of the cupboard and put it to use. I've had this Swiss Steak recipe from allrecipes.com bookmarked for a while now, and as I was shopping my pantry, I found steak in the freezer, and everything else was already in my cupboards. Yay! Here is the link to the recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Grandmas-Slow-Cooker-Swiss-Steak/Detail.aspx
It was ok, I guess. Kind of bland. I won't make it again.
The second recipe of the day comes from my friend Lynn (the owner of A Pile of Scrap!). In January at a scrapbooking crop at the store, we had chili for supper and Lynn made cornbread. I loved it! And of course asked for the recipe. Today is the first time I've made it myself.
1 cup flour
3/4 cup cornmeal
2-4 tbs sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup veg. oil
2/3 cup milk
Mix together just until all ingredients are combined. Pour in a greased 8x8 square or round pan.
Bake at 425 for 20-25 minutes.
Thanks for the recipe, Lynn - it's a keeper as far as I'm concerned!
