Unfortunately also a vacation day while my car is stuck in my driveway. I did use it to my advantage somewhat. The cleaning doesn't count but I did put some au gratin potatoes into the crockpot made with my new favorite cheese ~ cranberry & chipotle pepper.
I used this cheese to create a new recipe over the weekend for chicken phyllo wraps.
Another recommendation is lemon bits from King Arthur Flour. They add the perfect amount of zing to lemon bread and I imagine anything else they are added to.
Well the Barefoot Contessa is on and she's one of my favorites.
