I worked this weekend, so I’m off for the next two days. The forecast for today was rainy and cool so I decided I was going to bake bread. I love to cook, but I’m not a great baker, and I’ve never made a loaf of bread before from scratch. I used a basic whole wheat bread recipe from the Robin Hood flour website. It turned out pretty well for my first time, so now I feel encouraged to try other kinds of bread.
Then, I decided I was going to make banana bread which I’ve made many times before. I started to think about what other ingredients I had to jazz it up a bit. The internet is a wonderful thing – I typed chocolate, banana and blueberry in a Google search and this is the result:
All this baking took up most of the day so it was soon time to think about supper. I wanted something light to go with the bread so I marinated turkey breast strips in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper and lemon pepper for awhile (I’m not sure how long exactly, maybe half an hour), then made a balsamic vinaigrette with pretty much the same ingredients for the salad which was bitter greens, cucumber, peppers, red onion, grated old cheddar, and blueberries and then topped with the sauteed turkey breast strips. Delish.
Now, I just need someone to clean up my kitchen!
