Today is "fall back" day, where we end daylight savings time. I am not a fan of daylight savings time - here in Michigan, this means it might be a little lighter when I leave for work in the morning for a while, but it will be dark when I leave. Pretty soon it will return to it being dark when I leave and dark when I return and it will seem like I am spending my entire life in the office. I need to remember to try to go out for a walk every day at lunch so I can see the sun! On the plus side, today gives me an extra hour to do things....I am going to spend my day organizing and planning. It's a good day to clean out drawers, bring out the sweaters, etc.
I am watching all the cooking shows I have recorded to free up some space on the DVR....here are some recipes I have watched that I want to try:
Everyday Food's Chicken, Lemon and Dill with Orzo is a great looking busy day casserole - I'd use chicken breast instead of the tenders and the bonus - the pasta doesn't need to be cooked first.
Lucinda Scala Quinn's Busy Day Chocolate Cake - I am becoming a HUGE FAN of Lucinda Scala Quinn. Just checked her cookbook Mad Hungry out of the library and I love her new TV show. This recipe rocks because this vintage cake is mixed up and baked in the same pan, and it's vegan friendly, to boot. Can't wait to try it. It's a great recipe for kids to try, just as she suggests. Heck, I think today is a great day for her short ribs menu
What are you doing with your extra hour today?.
