Indian Chapati Bread!!!

Recipe is from:
The ladies who run the site are great!!!

Homemade Donuts!!!

By far, the BEST 'donut' recipe yet! It was supposed to be called a Popover, but I used a mini bunt pan, and YUMMMM!!!! Rather then the fruit in the pic, I drizzeled them with a thin frosting coat. (I know, less healthy, but that made it a donut!)
They are best right out of the oven. The next morning they are still good, but not nearly as good as fresh and warm! This one is a keeper!!! Oh, and really easy to make!

Green Eggs!!

Hannahs class was having green eggs and ham, and since we dont do pork, I skipped on the ham. But the green eggs were a must. So, I put some spinach in the mixer with some water and let it run awhile. Then, mixed my green liquid with some eggs and fried them up!

Two new Yummies!

My sweet tooth was aching for comfort, so I mixed together:
About 1/4 cup of Tofu
1 cup Vanilla Soy milk
1/4 cup frozen OJ
6 frozen strawberries
And WOW was it good!!!

The end of the hunk of bread got left out last night, and got hard. So, I cut it up into bits, sprinkled with a small amount of olive oil, sea salt, fresh garlic and parsley. Our first Croutons since we started Feingold 9 months ago!! They baked at 350*f for about 15 minutes.
