“The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. We met up with Bob and Nancy this afternoon and sat through a very long but good movie. There was so much going on in that movie. Highly recommended…. if you can sit that long.
Before venturing out, the day went as follows. 1. Finished the shower cake for Kelly.
2. Had left over butter cookie dough, so naturally I made PBJ Butter Cookie Roll Ups.
The Bean Recipe:
- Let beans soak in the morning 6 hours. Change water 3 times. Add to boiling water for 5 minutes and let sit for 1 hour. Add the beans to the crock pot, set to HIGH and add 2 TBS cider vinegar + 1 PKG Yves Veggie Brats,sliced + 1 TBS whole grain dijon mustard + 1 1/2 to 2 cups Veggie Broth + 1 TBS Agave syrup. Let cook about 6 1/2 hours. Add 1 container Creamy Butternut Squash Soup.
- The Egg Bread was done in the bread maker using 1/3 cup + 2 TBS Egg Beaters + 1 TBS Olive Oil + 2 1/2 TBS sugar + 1 tsp salt + 2 cups Whole Wheat flour + 2 cups Regular Flour + 4 tsp yeast. Set on Fast Bake.
The Vegetable Saute was cooked as follows:
- Sauteed 1/2 onion, chopped in 1 TBS EVOO, about 5 min on med-hi. Let broccoli sit in HOT water for about 8 minutes then added to onions. Sprinkled with salt and pepper and cooked 3 minute. Topped with 2 sliced large plum tomatoes and sprinkled basil on tomatoes. Shaved (using veggie peeler) Sharp Provolone and topped tomatoes. Let cook about 3 more minutes.
I cut a large slab of bread, toasted it, topped it with some shaved provolone and broiled about 1 minute.
