Still laughing…..

OutOfTheMouthsOfMoms

Yes we all have those moments where we wish we could time travel and change a rather embarrassing moment so I thought I’d just do the opposite and share one of mine.

If I looked in a mirror today I might still red in the face from this one.

A few years ago I stood waiting on my front lawn for the postman to arrive and blurted out for all to hear “When are my 43 nipples going to get here!?” and then having to explain to my neighbor who looked quite puzzled, that my son bites the ends off of all his bottle nipples and I had bought 43 of them off Ebay to replace them. I definitely needed to think before I spoke on that one.

This week’s Blog lovin’

We may not eat hotdogs or any kind of meat in our house but who wouldn’t love seeing the Weinermobile driving down the street.
They even have the  Hotdogger blog where you can track all six of them.
Where are we?

our cat

This is our one year old cat (Snowball) she is twice as lazy as any other cat and this is how she spends her days, fast asleep on my dining room table, though she did raise her head and acknowledge me for about 3 seconds while I was taking her photo and that was me who wrote lazy cat on the chalkboard behind her, the kids thought it would be funny.

Secrets Saturday #7

You don’t need eggs to make chocolate chip cookies!

Here’s the scoop: I ran out of eggs 2 weeks ago and the kiddos kept hounding me for cookies so on a whim I made them without eggs and to our amazement they were awesome maybe even a little better. here’s my secret eggless chocolate chip cookie recipe:

2 cups sifted flour
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks of butter
1/3 cup of sour cream
2 cups chocolate chips
OPTIONAL* 1/4 cup cashews super ultra finely chopped into almost a powder.(I use a coffee grinder to get them into a powder)
*If you don’t use cashews add a teaspoon of cinnamon or vanilla for flavor.

mix butter and sugar until well blended then add remaining ingredients into the mix until fully incorporated.

bake at 370 degrees for about 9-15 minutes . You’ll need to keep checking the cookies will cook slower than normal, I add about an extra 3-4 minutes.

I use a cookie cake pan (well it’s our old heavy duty pizza pan) when I do cookies it’s much faster than baking individual cookies.

YUMMY…. Fried Dough!

Yes, this was our breakfast and the yummy smell of warm fried dough filled the house luring the kiddos one by one into the kitchen, what a quick, easy and super tasty recipe, Just like my Grandmother would make up for a snack on a cool summer day.

2 cups (8 1/2 ounces)  Unbleached All-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) cold butter
3/4 cup (6 ounces) lukewarm water

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Work in the cold butter, using a pastry blender, your fingers, or a mixer. Stir in the warm water to make a soft dough. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.

Divide the dough into eight pieces. Working with one piece at a time, roll into a thin 5″ round.

Heat ¼” vegetable oil to 375°F in an electric frying pan, or in a pan over a burner. If you’re not using an electric frying pan, you’ll have to guesstimate the temperature of the oil in your stovetop pan.

Pick up one dough disk, and carefully lower it into the pan. Let it cook for 45 to 60 seconds (it’ll puff up on top and become brown on the bottom), then flip it over and cook till brown on the other side, about 45 seconds. Remove from the oil and set on a paper towel-lined baking sheet. Place in a 200″F oven to keep warm while you make the remaining fried doughs.





oServe warm, with maple syrup or cider syrup; confectioners’ sugar, or cinnamon cugar; or the topping of your choice.

Yield: 8 fried doughs. This is and easy version uses a simple baking powder dough, and fries in just ¼” of vegetable oil–no messy deep frying necessary. Yea!

2 cups (8 1/2 ounces)  Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) cold butter
3/4 cup (6 ounces) lukewarm water

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. Work in the cold butter, using a pastry blender, your fingers, or a mixer. (I pick fingers) Stir in the warm water to make a soft dough. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes.

Divide the dough into eight pieces. Working with one piece at a time, roll into a thin 5″ round.
