Best thing you will make/have made today? Wed 11-17

Did you get up early and make a yummy breakfast? Have something delicious planned for dinner? Did you pack an extra-special or just plain tasty lunch today? What's the culinary highlight of your hump-day?

For breakfast I made parfaits with Greek yogurt, pomegranate seeds, rolled oats, walnut pieces, and honey. I work tonight, so dinner will be simple, and this was delicious, so I doubt I'll top it today.

For breakfast I had hash browns, sausages and two eggs over easy.

I am currently in the middle of making a batch of onion bagels.

I have some brown rice pudding in the works :) Aside from tasting good, it makes the house smell yummy and the kids love it. It will be the highlight of my day since hubby is sick... so no big dinner plans, just leftovers.

So far all I have had is a can of Coke Cherry Zero and a lot of medicine. I will have some of the hamburger vegetable soup I froze, for lunch. That will definitely be good. I'm having chicken thighs for supper, in BBQ sauce if I have any, along with fries. I might make tapioca pudding for dessert. Sounds like it's just going to get better as the day goes by!

That sounds wonderful. I need to start using my Foreman for things other than meat, which I feel it usually burns the outside of anyway.

I'm making a pot of chicken soup. Like you, SnickerDoodle, I love the way it makes the house smell on a cool day.

I'll have a tester bowl for an afternoon snack and save the rest for another day.
