I decided to check in with you mid-week to hear a little about how the Funky Fresh Kitchen Challenge is going for you so far. Remember, the challenge this week is to “Try Something New“. Have you figured out what to make? Have you given it a go yet?
I had a chance to experiment with Whole Wheat Pita Bread this afternoon. Success!! Oh - except for the fact that a Pig in a Blanket had apparently rolled off the baking pan and onto the oven floor a few days ago. Obviously, I was unaware of this at the time. When I heated my oven to bake the pitas (500°!), my oven started smoking something terrible. When I went to investigate, it turns out I had a blackened pig just a smokin’ away at the bottom of my oven.
Once I aired out my kitchen and continued making pitas, I was very happy with the results. (Happy, that is, with the results of my pitas – not so much my stinky kitchen.) I’ll share the pita recipe on Friday and give you a chance to share what you tried too!
Now don’t you go telling anyone that the Heavenly Homemaker has pigs smoking in her kitchen. That just doesn’t sound right. ;)
