@NotablySidedJP:  Husband is making his amazing steak sandwiches with mushrooms and cheese and sweet potato fries. Which means I don’t have to anything but drink a glass of wine! Woot!

Well, I just ate some maple-flavour mini wheats…. so there’s that. I hate cooking when FI isn’t home. Actually, I hate cooking period, but I have more motivation to do so when I’m not just cooking for myself.

@housebee:  Can you send me your recipe for pretzel buns?   I have been wanting to try and make them!

@Kjeff760:  Sure!  Here is the link (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/jeff-mauro/pretzel-hot-dog-buns-recipe/index.html) that I base my recipe off of, but my ingredient list is slightly different:

1 cup milk
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 packet active dry yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
1 cup bread flour

1/2 cup baking soda

Heat the milk to 105F-110F mix in honey, brown sugar and yeast.  Set aside to bloom.

Mix the flours and make a well.  Add the milk/sugar/yeast mixture and knead until the dough comes together, then add the salt and melted butter and continue to knead until smooth.

Let rest for 10-15 mins, then roll into balls and set on a silicone baking mat (you can also use greased parchment paper).  Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let proof in a warm place (usually about 40 mins).

Preheat the oven to 425F.  Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil, add baking soda and boil each bun for 30-40 seconds on each side.  Place on a silicone baking mat, slice the tops and bake for 11-13 mins.

To reheat these after they’ve cooled, just wrap in foil and bake for 5-10 mins at 350F.  Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions 🙂

Sushi! It’s my FI’s birthday today, and he wants me to pick some up on the way home from work (which I’m currently waiting to leave. I could if other people would do their work so I can finish mine, but I digress). Also a Swiss chocolate cake I made for him this morning 🙂

I know you’re probably not trying to cook sushi tonight, but that’s what we’re having!

@NotablySidedJP:  Last weekend I made way too much mango salsa, so I am having that for dinner, plus pumpkin seed tortillao chips. One foot in fall,  one in summer 🙂
