The night is winding down, every inch of our house is falling asleep into the almost-midnight shadows, EXCEPT our kitchen that is. The counters are covered in flour, the dishes piled high in the sink, and the oven is alive with heat and the smell of sugar cookies. But not just ANY sugar cookies! Page 208 and 209 of OUR BEST BITES jam filled sugar cookies. YUM! VERY YUM!
Now that I think about it, it's been an "Our Best Bites" dinner menu night. After a long day of searching for 'cute looking fabric' and a 'cute looking contrast fabric' for my sewing final project, the day felt like a disappointment and a waste of gas/miles. Not to mention that I'm sick of looking at Hawaiian printed fabrics that remind me of the Swapmeet, lol. So I decided that a crappy day didn't have to end crappy, haha, and so luck found my finger landing on Page 145: "Glazed Pork Chops with Apricot-Ginger Sauce". Holy lick-EVERY-last-bit-off-your-plate GOODNESS! I highly recommend this recipe. You may have to stop by the store to pick up a few ingredients, but trust me, it's worth it. Btw the Pineapple-Apricot Preserves are on sale at Foodland. The combined seasoning will make passerby's WISH they were eating dinner at your house tonight, and the sauce....you WILL KEEP scooping it out of the pot, over and over, covering everything.
So...I'm pretty tired now. There's still a ton of cookie dough waiting to be cut into hearts, off to the fridge I think they'll go. James devoured all of the pork chops, not a sign or drip of evidence of my apricot creation. After church tomorrow I'm going to tackle another Our Best Bites delicous-ness, since all the family is driving down to celebrate Eric's birthday. The thought of being in the kitchen again just made me even more tired. Time to clean all of this dried dough off :)
