Wednesday could not come sooner.
Wednesday = halfway in the working week = halfway closer to the weekend.
As much as I enjoy work, weekends certainly take precedence. To cure my sadness, here are my eats from the weekend just passed which involved eating recipe experiments…including the failures. I need to figure out a formula when it comes to recipe testing and recipe shooting- I always think I have it down pretty well but alas…it doesn’t work that way.
Shoot before a meal = failed shoot because of hunger taking over.
Recipe testing before a meal = failed recipe test because of hunger taking over.
Okay, I give up. There isn’t a formula. Just do what you can, when you can- and with a cookie in my left hand.
Big props to Jenn for hosting!
Breakfast- A bowl of the Caramel Cookie Dough oatmeal– the ‘bad’ bowl- and by bad I mean the one I overdosed with caramel. It became un-photoworthy…it also became extra sweet. I could live with that.
Lunch- I tried to be all ‘let’s pretend I’m about to experience Fall and not Summer’ and tried an experiment involving pumpkin.
It was an epic fail. Nothing some homemade hazelnut butter couldn’t fix.
Snack- To make up for lunchtime’s recipe fail, this was a recipe success. Can we say ‘Copycat Subway Cookie?’ I wanted to try my mum’s basic biscuit recipe using gluten free flour and changing the mix ins to create my favourite chewy cookie. Conquered.
Dinner- I was lazy but granola for dinner wasn’t an option (because I was out of granola). I made an amended version of my grain free microwave English Muffin topped with peanut butter and a 4 egg omelette mixed with cheddar cheese, baby spinach, sea salt and cumin.
Dessert- No special recipes but a freezer burnt copycat Lindt truffle. I should have let it thaw but I was snacky, it sounded good and that’s how I roll.
If you make this and freeze them- let it shaw. I nearly broke my tooth.
Bloggers, do you have a formula when it comes to recipe testing/experimenting/shooting?
When is the last time you used pumpkin?
What is something epic you’ve eaten recently?
