I am SO glad for this week to be over! Emile wasn't thrilled about laundry day - as usual.
Today I did my duty and got my Tdap vaccine. Normally I save my Tetanus shots for my ER visits but amazingly I have gone over 10 years without one and we are having a bit of a Whooping Cough bump out here. I would feel bad to be part of that problem.
I also got a chance to meet some people with a local charity called Good Wishes this morning. You will be hearing more about them in the future on this blog for sure. Really nice group of people and I am hoping to be involved at some level with them.
This week had more baking and cooking in it than planned. But it was a rotten sleeping week and I do love trying to the new recipes out!
Three Grain Chewy Energy Bar. I didn't have coffee however and I do think that made the end result a bit bland. If I don't do coffee next time around I need to bump up the cinnamon and maybe add something else.
I actually enjoyed eating the batter more than the finished product. The cinnamon taste was stronger uncooked, so I already know to increase that.
Jelly Roll Cake and I highly recommend this one. It is not just simple to make but simple in taste. My filling shown is the Chocolate Banana Split Butter which I eat in huge amounts. Regularly. I did do a second roll with just plain coconut butter and I actually liked it better. I think because the roll itself is mildly sweet and I just felt like the coconut butter went better with it.
Cookie Dough Baked Oatmeal. Dog friendly is only oats, banana/applesauce, water, blueberries, and peanut butter. THIS human thought they were actually really good.
Aquadog Spa today and so he was all full of gentleness for the evening.
I hardly heard a peep out of him except when the oatmeal cakes were done. You can tell I cook a lot and he rarely pays that much attention but the oatmeal cakes made him actually come out and check out the counter. Like he knows they are for him!
