We have three inches of snow at the snowstick and I think it is staying for the winter.
The tracks are squirrel and fox. And so our winter begins thirty-five days early…as we are technically still in Fall.
We have had a quiet week. I am crocheting some winter hats…my pattern, yarn and hook have been adjusted several times.
We are trying two new to us recipes this week…one was a keeper and I should have taken a photo of it.
Monte Cristo Pull Apart Loaf
Our recipe serves two people ( adapted from a recipe in the latest Kraft food & family magazine)
3-4 slices of bread we like potato bread…flattened with a rolling pin.
Top with swiss cheese, sliced ham or turkey or both. Fold in half and place fold side down in foil lined bread pan or corningware. (Spray foil with a bit of olive oil first.)
Mix together 1 egg, a few tablespoons of milk, 1 Tablespoon Miracle Whip and about 1/4 teaspoon mustard. Mix well…pour over bread. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Then Bake 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
You can add more bread, cheese and meat and use more eggs and milk to make more servings.
We both gave this recipe 5 out of 5 stars and will make it again. Oh yes you can sprinkle it with powdered sugar just before serving and serve it with jam if you want to be fancy smancy.
The other new recipe will be tried later this week.
