This week an absurb heat wave melted my brain, took away my sanity and forced us to seek shelter in a local hotel. Really . Our house was so hot, neither the Chicklet nor I were sane by the time my sweet Love returned from work. The following morning, I checked in to a hotel. Our first move at the hotel? Crack the air conditioner to artic blast and ooohhh-ahhhh at the frosty cool air that blew in our faces. Oh yea, the Chicklet is an air-conditioning lover too.
Sadly, upon returning home and setting up for some serious make up blog posting… I realized that the heat wave did more than ruin our budget… but my recipe notebook/spiral was toast. A goner. In the garbage….. and dead. All before I could copy back the recipes I used. The one I think I will miss the most is for these fabulous green onion pancakes.
If you’ve never had a scallion pancake, then you don’t know what you missed out on. But these faux-scallion pancakes were OMG-delicious. Even the babe was at my feet hovering for bites as I cooked these individually.
Losing that notebook means I also lost my notes for:
some seriously chow-friendly and budget-friendly taco salad mixings
delicious gluten-free zuchini breakfast pancakes
wickedly finger-licking gluten-free beer braised lamb shanks
and one rendition of my go-to salmon chowder recipe.
Ah, well. Guess it’s time to start over with a new notebook, huh? And the imp? She’s happy to begin her taste-testing follies all over again, I’m sure.
Forgive my absence. I’ll be back again shortly with more recipes… and another lunch-idea list because now I’m packing for THREE! A regular, A GF Lite and a Kidlet version to boot!
~Happy Heat Wave, All!
