I have a new name for New York No Knead Bread. It's New York No Rise Bread. It didn't work. I was talking to a friend yesterday, a fellow Discuss Cooking member, and she told me it may be the expiration date on the yeast. It didn't budge one bit when I just saw it this morning. I chucked it and started a new batch just now with yeast that I know is alive. Fingers crossed. It's already moved more than the bowlful yesterday.

I'll do a makeshift Shepards Pie for tonights dinner. Only thing I need to buy-potatoes and I'd like to get some interesting vegetables too instead of the typical peas and carrots. We'll see what's in the market.

Happy Sunday to you all.

reason edited......to let you all know that in my trifle bowl where my dough is resting in my turned off oven, it's already half way up to the top. YEAH! are your fingers crossed for me?
second reason edited......I'm watching Ina and she's doing chocolate peanut butter cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting. So, for dessert, I'm making those for my doll. What's not eaten is going to work with him tomorrow for the coffee circle as otherwise, they'll be dangerous sitting around here on my kitchen counter.

That sounds divine, kadesma! One of these Sundays, I'm bound to come knocking.

I don't know what we're having. I planned to make a nice meal but dh had to take the car to work yesterday so I didn't get to go grocery shopping. Maybe I'll go into town today??? Don't know. We don't have much at home. Maybe enough for a shove by but I want to make something great!!! I want to spend a few hours in the kitchen making something delicious!!!

Cora,

What do you have on hand in the refrigerator or freezer or pantry? Maybe all of us could put our heads together and see what we can stir up :)

I just laid out some chicken, and am going to go browse through Food and Wine for some new ideas. Too lazy to hunt on the net... We are currently reorganizing the daughter's room, and by the time she gets done with me, I am suspect I am going to be tired. That inborn "move the clock an inch to the left, and the dresser over 3 feet, nevermind, put it back... etc." is rearing it's ugly head today. Don't know where she gets it from

what sort of chicken do you have? pieces with bones, boneless skinless, a whole body? my idea is do you have some jam or preserves? my first thought would be apricot/peach/pineapple or plum, and stick in microwave just to warm it and soften it a bit, then to that, add some balsamic vinegar just to give it an edge to the sweet of the jam. wash and dry, season with salt and pepper the chix, rub butter on it all over then rub down with the jam mixture, place in oven proof baking dish in 350 oven for 40 minutes or so. poke to insure juices run clear and it's done.

I've got a beef brisket smoking on the grill right now in a mix of hickory, cherry and pear wood. After it takes on a good bit of smoke, I'll wrap it in foil and finish it in the oven. Sides are roasted red potatoes with garlic, olive oil and rosemary and sugar snap peas for a veg.
