Zeresht Polow

Dad made dinner tonight. It was very pretty, but definatly enough for more than three people.
The chicken was cooked slowly in white wine and then the rice was infused with saffron.--Dad said something like that and wanted me to write it, I just have a bad memory.

Whole-Wheat Apple Waffles

After wandering around Bloomingdale's, I was inspired by the waffle irons.
So I decided to dig mine out, that I don't think I've ever used (Dad has, but he gave it to me for Christmas one year, I think).

Dad didn't really like them, since they were dense, but Mom thought they were nice.

Friday Night Adventures In Brownies & Saturday Platings of Leftovers

Breakfast looked pretty this morning (but the Apple Cinnamon loaf Dad bought on Thursday night).

I made brownies last night. And no, I did not burn them. They're just really black. I actually think they're probably a bit undercooked, but there aren't eggs in them, so I'm pretty sure it won't hurt anyone, and I only saved about seven. The rest I froze, and had half of one from the freezer and they're yummier that way.
Nobody but me seems to like them so far. Mom didn't try one, Keri thinks they're too sweet, Dad said they were too black (I don't know if he tasted one or not), and actually, I think they're too moist.

Sweet Breakfast Trio

This was breakfast today. It consisted of three things:

  • an apricot cottage cheese waffle
  • a triple berry-nut omelet
  • a strawberry banana waffle

  • The apricot cottage cheese waffle was an Eggo waffle topped with apricot jam, cottage cheese, nutmeg, and cinnamon that was then put under the broiler for three minutes.
    The berry-nut omelet had two eggs and an egg white, cinnamon, dried cranberries, dried cherries, dried blueberries, and walnuts.
    The strawberry banana waffle was an Eggo waffle topped with a banana and two frozen strawberries and warmed up a bit in the oven.

    I wasn't sure how the omelet would turn out, but it was good.
