Rain ~ Cold Temps

Rain moved in yesterday as predicted. Our temperature is to drop considerably tonight.  They say the rain will go on for 36 hours.

I went from "I'll just clean the hallway" (where people just drop stuff on the floor coming in and the boot pile is a mess), to "I think I should make...." and here is what got done . . .

Homemade English Muffins were made.

Einkorn Peanut Butter Cookies were made.

Einkorn pizza dough was made for the freezer.

I would have made pie crust crumbles, but I need to get some flour.  It remains on the re-stock it list.

I got zero cleaning done, other than dishes.  Our 20 year-old daughter came out for dinner, and helped with making it.  I was totally excited she wanted to help.  Although I told my husband he would only get homemade corn dogs once a year, he got them.  I told them no "french fries" though.  They got oven roasted potato wedges and they were fantastic.  I used a recipe online (Tasty) with homemade garlic powder, Parmesan cheese, etc.

Update on our SIL - he's still in ICU due to experiencing Afib.

That corndog looks delicious! I have never made homemade ones, but have considered it lately. I would like to try them in the air fryer.
I will continue to pray for your son in law

Thank you Carol. The corn dog recipe is online. It's a video actually - The Stay at Home Chef (Disneyland Style hand dipped corn dogs).

The food looks great! I need to make some English muffins soon. I have some baking to do today, we are getting deluges of rain, hope we don't lose power!

Rain, thanks. It's still raining here today, and we are getting flooded areas. Crazy weather for sure.
