A cold winter Saturday - full house of food following a major shop at WFM. I am spending the day reading cookbooks and planning my recipes to try this week. I am going to make a cake this afternoon - a ridiculously easy cake with pineapple and topped with a coconut pecan frosting. Dinner tonight will be a nice NY Strip Steak cooked in cast iron and topped with sauteed mushrooms, a big baked potato with sour cream along side.
It is forecast to be very cold the next few days and I am thinking that I will be making a big pot of soup soon. Beef barley is the current top contender - a long slow simmering pot and I am planning to make some bread to go along side the soup.
I love having cooking days ahead.
