I intended to make half a recipe of cornbread madeleines. I carefully added half the corn meal and half the flour. And then I got to thinking...about who will go with me to the City Produce in Cumming where they are selling from only local family farms for the next 6 weeks. And then I was thinking about whether to make salad dressing with champagne vinegar or just forget the salad dressing altogether. And I thought about you and what you might be up to today. And I thought about my muffin tin that I love and how upset I am that there are no markings telling me what brand it is because I want another one. And I thought about why the dishwasher can't have a Warp Speed button. And I thought about watering the plants; I was supposed to do that on Friday and now it's Tuesday. And I thought about who's and it's and how they're not possessives.
And then it happened.
I started adding the full amount of ingredients into the batter instead of half the amount. I guess there are worse problems than this. But I had to go back and add more flour and more corn meal and get the recipe back on track again.
|This is the muffin pan I love. No brand on it. Where did it come from?|
I decided to add a tablespoon of this in half the batch.
And then I decided to make croutons out of them.
I was going to make this salad but then I wondered if cornbread croutons and roasted potatoes in one salad were just too much. I decided it would be fine. And that we needed the salad dressing after all.
I had one shallot left. Just enough. Lucky!
We had a few leaves of Swiss Chard from the garden. Not many! But I added them to the salad.
Looked so good.
In the end I made a very similar salad to this one.
