I made a batch of Sally Lunn bread on Friday. Decided to split the batter up between two of my loaf pans rather than bake it in the bundt pan. Seems to be drier in loaf style, and not as good for sandwiches as I had hoped. Still tasty for breakfast toast, though.

Made cornbread to serve up with tonight's soup and salads. I also made a loaf of country white bread at the same time. Just like having kids, two buns in the same oven. And, like my kids, they aren't identical!

Thanks for asking, chiles are on my mind a lot!

I bought ten 25 pound boxes of roasted green chiles last fall and kept some records of what I did with them. I froze around 65 quart bags of whole roasted green chiles and now have 22 quarts left in the freezer. What I find I like best are the chiles I canned in pint jars. I canned 45 pints of green chile sauce and 39 pints of green chiles.

No I did not put any in the cornbread yesterday. For the soup, I opened a pint jar of the chiles, swished a knife around in the jar to cut up the soft chiles and added the entire contents to the soup.

The big news is I have ordered my own chile roaster from this guy.

Products – Sonoran Chile Roasters

For the past several years I have grown a dozen green chile plants and was not interested in growing any more because I did not want to fool with roasting them at home. I would use them like bell peppers and give the rest away. With my own chile roaster I plan on greatly expanding my green chile crop. Here's some photos of last years green chile project.

Wow, so cool. I wish I had the energy to do more canning. We did buy a stand-up freezer last summer, so I can preserve that way and do different things with the produce more slowly. I'm thinking about getting an electric canner this year.

I made a Hershey's "Perfectly Chocolate" Cake yesterday
and the frosting that accompanies it.
I only wanted to make a two layer cake and have both
8 and 9inch pans... went with the 8" and a dozen cupcakes for
DH (y'know, so he doesn't whine too much..."HEH! Where's mine!")

I didn't do the best job decorating the cake (its for this sweet kid in our neighborhood who's turning 13, she has Cancer, so I do different things to make her smile)...
My Mother gave me this

I switched off to my TNT method of a ziptop baggie with the tip inserted into a clipped corner of the bag.

I made a loaf of honey wheat bread to go with our milk and eggs. Snow storm provisions are now complete.
