We've been kind of off routine and out of sorts since our trip a couple of weeks ago, and I've just been moseying along with no menu plan. Even so, I thought I'd let y'all know what's been cooking lately. I'm still loving the Sourdough eCourse at GNOWFGLINS, so of course we've had lots of sourdough goodies! My 8 and 10 year old daughters even made their very own sourdough starter last week per Erin's instructions and they cooked up some delicious apple muffins with it over weekend! Some other things I've made from the eCourse in the past week include:
Cheese and Herb Crackers
|Ready to go into the oven|
|My toddler could live on these things. They are SO addictive.|
Roast Beef and Cheese Crepe Cake
|Mmmmm...beefy, cheesy, melty yummness|
|Before turning them out|
|Here they are turned out with all the ooey gooey goodness from the bottom of the dish!|
German Pancakes (a modification of the skillet pancakes shared by an eCourse member)
Chicken and dumplings were requested for last week, so I made the dumplings from rolled and cut bucket dough from the eCourse. Sourdough dumplings! They were really good! Also on the non-menu last week was Homemade Pizza Rolls. I followed the sourdough cinnamon roll recipe, omitted the sweeteners, and filled with pizza sauce, ground beef, and cheese! I also kneaded some herbs into the rolls. Delicious! These were a hit!
So, that's what's been cooking in my kitchen during these weeks of blogging silence. Here's what will be cooking in the week to come!
