Journey With Cookbooks #25

So this time I did several different recipes. But a few of them, I’ve done before so I didn’t think to take pictures of the whole process…but I’ll post what I did!

Okay so first I made pizza dough, and I had it rising in the fridge. The recipe I use works wonders if you refrigerate the dough.

I don’t have a photo of the pizza I made, because I made it for the hubby. And I only had 4min to cut it, put it on the pan, get the baby in the car, and drive it to him at work. 😮‍💨

I was only 3min late. 😎 (I drove the speed limit) We just live only 1mile away.

But then I made bread rolls with the other half of the dough.

I doused them in butter and sprinkled our pizza seasoning over them.

So delicious. I had about 3 of them!

Then I decided I should make the marinara meatball idea. The hubby had wanted to go to Subway for lunch, but instead I made him a lunch meat sandwich at home.

Still…I made the food he really wanted to help us save money.

This was a new recipe. But it’s just put everything in a bowl, then form the meatballs.

I used my new favorite marinara sauce recipe. I had that going. I let it simmer for about 30min, while I made the meatballs.

Wow!

Times this by two and you will know how many meatballs I rolled…😮‍💨

While the meatballs cooked I did the dishes…
And made baked donuts.

Our buttermilk was going to expire in 12 days. Since it’s not cheap I decided to use it up and make delicious donuts. Not that we need them or anything.

Baby chose the color for the glaze. Pink! It made about 24 donuts!!🤤 I tested them for poison. Baby did too…

They are done!
I forgot to take a picture when I poured them all in the sauce…since I wasn’t eating them tonight I wanted to get them in containers sooner than later so that they would cool off.

We are going to be eating this for a while…hope the hubby is ready to eat the sandwich beyond his heart’s desire.

Next was salsa…

The hubby had gone to store and gotten some chips and salsa, that was on sale. But sadly the salsa tasted more like pizza sauce…so I was tasked with the mission of making it taste better.

So I chopped some onion, jalapeño, and added some minced garlic. Stir!
I added too much stuff, so I had to add more tomatoes.

I also added some salt. Yummy!! When in doubt, add onion, jalapeño, garlic, and salt. And if you need more tomatoes, I used a can of diced tomatoes. I just chopped them a bit more before adding them.

I about double the amount we had from the start.

Hopefully the hubby approves!

Dishes once again. This is my second load in the sink and also my second load in the dishwasher.

I can’t really rate this blog post, since I did a few recipes randomly. But also the new one I won’t be eating until later today.

But just know easiness of all the recipes I did, would be a 10!! Because I did…1, 2, 3,…6! I did six different recipes from 3:30pm-8pm.

I was pooped yesterday. Today I’m just going to enjoy my Sunday! ❤️
