I baked some salmon...since DH's getting a diabetes diagnosis, it's slowed down my baking considerably...I'm trying really hard not to tempt him. DH was the dessert eater, I'm happy with beef jerky or corned beef.

I have a nice big batch (one and a half dozen) of orange cranberry walnut muffins in the oven right now.

I'm in the mood to argue muffin vs cupcake with my mother and fiance this morning.

I was going to make a pumpkin pie because I've had a taste for it. Just as I was ready to pull ingredients out DH called - got out of "Dodge" early and wanted to know if I wanted to go out to dinner. Bu-bye pie! Maybe next week....

spatchcock chicken---will let you know how it turns out......the prep method (cutting out the backbone and flattening the chicken by applying pressure from the breast side) was an absolute disaster.......let's just say that I broke a pair of kitchen shears and managed to create "offal--akin to awful" spatterings on my wall........

It's rainy and miserable out, and I'm having motivational issues today. If I can get myself out of this chair and into the kitchen, I'm planning to make some butter rolls for dinner and maybe some asparagus puffs to freeze until Easter.

Made my usual Sunday cinnamon rolls (which I put in the freezer before baking and sell to a local coffee shop), but saved out three for our breakfast (we had a friend over). Expat girl, let us know how the spatchcock chicken turns out. I tried it a few months ago and wasn't impressed - it dried out pretty fast while cooking.

the spatchcock chicken tonight was delicious, MK, despite the horrible prep butchering job....I guess I never would have been a neurosurgeon.....had I had decent kitchen shears (as in sharp) I might not have had such a colorful poultrified wallpaper and a mutilated pair of shears.......rescued by a sharp knife and unmentionable language it was marinated overnight in a bottled South African peri peri sauce (deliciously spicy) lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, and mixed herbs and baked covered for 45 minutes and then uncovered for the last 15 minutes.....it yielded delicious drippings......if I hadn't been so lazy I would have made a sauce out of them.... I wished that we had had your cinnamon bons for dessert...they sounded wonderful like all of everyone's posted recipes..........

Rolls made from dough prepared yesterday based on the 5-minute-a-day pretzel dough recipe.
