Aside from this afternoon, which dragged, this week has gone by quickly which is sort of weird because it’s been somewhat of a trying week. For a bunch of different reasons that I don’t even want to get into (or really totally know, for that matter), I’ve just been in a pissy mood this week. So, I was kind of glad to come home tonight and just do nothing.
Although, I had to endure a monsoon first.
What does one do on a rainy Friday night when she has no plans? Cook, obviously.
I get the majority of my recipes from Pinterest nowadays. I still have tons of cookbooks, but somehow it’s just easier to look at my pinboards and find something appealing. I get a little overwhelmed when I try to pick something out of a cookbook. Maybe I just need cookbooks with pretty pictures, who knows?
There are definitely some things that I’ve made that I haven’t liked (I usually won’t blog about them in that case), but for the majority, most recipes that I try are pretty good. But every now and again, I find one that is just great.
This was the Warm Spinach Salad with Fried Egg and Potatoes from Martha Stewart. Thanks Martha, you make a good salad. Kind of nuts, it was so simple, but so tasty. This will definitely get a repeat performance. I always forget how much I enjoy a good potato. And because I liked it so much, here’s another picture.
The cooking wasn’t over after dinner. I had some bananas that were looking a little rough.
Would you believe that I just bought these on Sunday and they weren’t even ripe then?! Anyway, ripe bananas = some sort of bread, only this time, I went with this Almond Zucchini Bread recipe instead of a traditional banana bread.
Blurry picture but I can assure you that it was very good. Now I am just trying to prevent myself from eating the whole loaf. You know, with my whole no snacking after dinner (which doesn’t include dessert; I can have dessert. I just don’t want to mindlessly snack after that.) goal thing.
