She did a lovely job on the border. It sets the quilt off beautifully.
Leftovers for the back.
breakfast (which was a repeat of Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday), and an evening snack of cheese & crackers with a glass of wine while watching Greys Anatomy. I was so full of BACON from our cooking excursion with Chef Rosa that I didn't need anything else for hours and hours and hours. I had a few sniggers into my hand during the day - I am forever bugging DH to cook healthy, low cholesterol food for us, and yet I was pigging out all afternoon.
Here are the different items Rosa fed us, and as I go I'll let you know what I don't have in my own pantry. Those are the parts where I failed at the week long eat-at-home-from-your-own-supplies challenge.
#1) Peanut butter and onion sandwiches. We arrived at Rosa's at 12:30 and a few of us were starving. These took the edge off our hunger and gave us energy to watch (!) Rosa cook. (we were supposed to help, I guess, but...) I have everything on hand for these little goodies, but this is a combination I would certainly NEVER have imagined. These were yummy. Nice squishy bread, a touch of mayo, peanut butter, thinly sliced onion, a dash of salt.
#2 - Maple Bacon wrapped Sweet Potatoes with spicy sour cream. Again, I have everything on hand to make these, although sadly I would have to substitute the 14% sour cream with plain low-fat yogurt. Absolutely delicious.
#3) - Spinach, Pear & Pancetta Salad. My pantry totally failed here. No spinach, no pear, no pancetta, no shallots, no pomegranate seeds. :-( This was delicious AND healthy.
#4) - Bacon Wrapped Chicken Bombs. This was only a partial fail - I have no jalapeno peppers on hand. These chicken breasts are stuffed with jalapenos which are stuffed with cream cheese and cheese, 'cause you always need more cheese, right? I really liked these. Even when you got a stab of heat from the pepper there was enough cheese to cool you back down. Yum.
#5) - Bacon Wrapped Perogies. Easy peasy, I could totally make these tonight. Except for the sour cream. I do have lots of plain yogurt, so I guess I could substitute, but honestly - this is one place where it just isn't the same.
#6) - Bacon Wrapped Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Cream Cheese Frosting. Ha ha ha ha! Total fail on my pantry's part. Holy shit - these are deep fried! *!#**!! Ha ha ha ha!
But oh my, they were sooo good!!! I don't have the main ingredient - Pillsbury Grand Cinnamon Rolls with Frosting. I have the other stuff (bacon, maple syrup, cinnamon sugar or icing sugar, toothpicks). But that would get me nowhere, fast. I suppose I could make the cinnamon rolls from scratch - I do have all the necessary supplies. But that will not happen. :-)
