Chicken Noodle Soup, Wheat Bread, Honey Butter and a Lemon Tart (210:365)

I love cooking, but it sure is a lot of work when it's all from scratch! 

For dinner tonight I made Chicken Noodle soup, improvising as I went, throwing in some chopped kale to boost the health factor, and some freshly picked basil out of our AeroGarden. The soup turned out delicious.

Then I made some quick Whole Wheat Bread from The Essential Mormon Celebrations cookbook by Julie Badger Jensen

It only took 5 minutes to mix and only 40 minutes in the oven, with no rising time. I used molasses instead of honey. Here is a link to someone else who took the time to type it all up.
The bread was nice, with a definite quick bread/ chewy texture. The honey butter made it delicious.

From the same cookbook, I made some Honey Butter. The recipe calls for 1 cup softened butter, 1 cup honey, and 1 tsp vanilla. Beat for 3 minutes on high. I halved the recipe though, since I'm the only one using it and it's only good for 4 weeks in the fridge.

Then I made a heavenly Lemon Tart.

I topped the tart off with homemade whipped cream. Yummmm. It was a delicious meal.

What did you have for dinner?


  1. Apple cinnimon cheerios. I'm coming over to your house for left overs.

  2. We had breakfast burritos with egg whites, salsa and canadian bacon. I chopped an avocado so that Cate could enjoy some too (Chaz hates them - silly guy).

    Good for you for making a multi-course meal!

  3. The food was amazing!!! Thanks so much for the time and effort you put into it!
