As I mentioned previously, we were given this beauty for Christmas!
And so I decided the first thing I made with it would be bread.
The mixer really made it very easy. However, next time I use this recipe, I will definitely cut the recipe in half. We don't need this much bread at one time.
This is a dipping oil we bought on our Stillwater Date this past summer, and decided to open it up for our fresh bread.
Here are a few of my favorite cooking books. The one I used for the next recipe was out of the taller blue one, French Women Don't Get Fat.
I decided to try the Yellow Pepper Soup.
Which requires several yellow peppers!
While it's cooking...
And our yummy meal!
The soup was better as a leftover, once all the flavors combined. But it's a little too sweet of a soup for me to ever crave. I think I would add more potatoes next time for a little more substance.
We also received an electric wok for Christmas! So Malachi can finally make all that stir fry he craves so often.
And he did!
Mmm, it was really good.
And last but not least, we made some smoothies. We bought several frozen fruit packages at Aldi's a while back because we were so excited to see so much fruit that hadn't had sugar added to it!
Okay, well now I'm hungry. So I'm gonna go eat, I just have to decide between left over stirfry or soup...they both sound so good...
