More Cooking Adventures

Chris and I did a bunch of cooking again last week. Well, a bunch for us anyway. We ate at home Monday, Tuesday, and yesterday (Sunday). This is an impressive feat for us; as I've mentioned before, we are chronic restaurant patrons. Again, I forgot to take any photos. I'll try harder to remember next week.

On Monday, we had pickle chicken. We've had this before and liked it a lot. It still looked just as gross as the first time, but it was still delicious. It was a little bit saltier than I would have preferred, though. I'll have to try low sodium chicken broth next time. Or better yet, maybe I'll make my own.

On Tuesday, we ate butter and dill salmon. It was amazing! We used fresh dill (from the grocery store - unfortunately none of my herbs survived the transition indoors at the end of the summer), which was so much better than dried in this recipe.

On Saturday, I made cheddar, beer, and mustard pull-apart bread. It is the first time I've ever made bread by myself and it turned out really well. I'm super impressed with myself. One side of the top got a little burnt, but that is entirely the fault of my ancient oven. It never cooks anything evenly. Maybe we'll buy a new stove as well when we buy the fridge.

On the subject of the fridge, our new door has been installed (you can see the door, the hardware, and the installation process on the Hateful Hovel blog). So I guess we'll probably be getting our new refrigerator pretty soon. I am excited about it, don't get me wrong, but I just hate spending all that money. Ah well, I guess it will be worth it in the end.
