Happy first week with us, Norman!
Last Monday we picked up Puppy from the shelter.
You all decided Norman should be his name.
Having a puppy with three other big dogs and two cats has been easier than expected. We’re crate training Norman and he’s responding really well.
I’m the proudest momma when he does his business outside!
It’s a gloomy Monday morning here in Asheville. I have a to-do list to tackle today, but I couldn’t help but start the week off with a little baking. I’m not one for cookbooks, but Veganomicon has somehow claimed a place close to my heart.
I have two recipes that are permanently bookmarked- Snobby Joes and Banana Bread.
(Here’s a published recipe online. Basically just combine wet ingredients, then add dry. Stir just until blended and bake 40-50 minutes at 350*.)
Eeek! Jack isn’t allowed on the counter! Don’t worry- I didn’t bake him.
I never follow recipes exactly, but this time I really went on a limb and added some mashed butternut squash to the mix.
I also used 1/2 whole wheat flour. And I didn’t have applesauce. So basically i didn’t follow the recipe at all.
My baking pans are still in boxes (I’m not lazy!?), so I went with a mini muffin tin.
The result is quite tasty! I don’t specifically taste the squash, but it does add a hint of extra flavor and a boost of nutrients.
Now I’m off to actually tackle that to-do list and get in a run later!
How do you sneak veggies into your recipes?
