I'm having hotdogs, fries, lemonade, and cotton candy at the Truck & Tractor pull show with my 5 year old son.

Chicken fajita night, woohoo. I love making dinners where the whole family eats it up with no complaints I have a meat-centric husband and 3 picky little boys along with an opinionated pregnant belly so that is a lofty goal for this house

Tonite is the last Sisters Sunday Dinner before I go back to strict low-carbing for the next month, so I'm making a smorgasborg. Sauce with chicken, hamburger and turkey burger and rotini. Chicken, gravy, and biscuits. Italian bread, elderberry pie (the Amish made these, not me). Biscotti. And cucumber sandwiches.
A gross amount of food. Yay!!!

Cheeseburgers, watermelon and corn on the cob in the back yard. It's supposed to be in the 50's next weekend, so we're lapping up the last bit of summer.

My favorite tortilla soup recipe, and salad. Plus, pumpkin pie for dessert! Yum.

Oh, that sounds so good! Did you use a specific recipe for the soup?

It's one of those recipes I keep messing around with every time I make it. I've got notes all over the original on changes to try the next time. I'd be glad to share it if you want.

The cornbread recipe is new to me; it calls for soaking the cornmeal in milk for 15 minutes before mixing and baking and I really like it! I think I'll be doing it this way from now on.

Soaking cornmeal and other grains really improves the texture and moisture of the finished breads. Yeast-raised breads commonly involve this technique in addition to cornbread. Also doing it with hot liquid to gelatinize part of the starch, then mixing with the remaining flour after a rest.

It definitely makes a wonderful difference, I'm in love.

I soak the cornmeal when I make Anadama bread too. I need to make some of that!!

Tonight, shepherds pie.

Question about soaking cornmeal - does it change the actual texture of the cornmeal or the texture of the end product? I love cornmeal for it's grittiness and crunch and wouldn't want to get rid of that.

Dinner is hubby's birthday request: shrimp sauteed in lemon, white wine, butter, and garlic, and a fresh baguette for sopping up the sauce. No veggies, haha. Birthday blondies for dessert
