I know I promised the first installment of Bittman Thursdays today but honestly, Shaw Girl is STILL sick. I am thinking spending well over 12 hours out in the cold didn’t help any on Tuesday (but it was soooo worth it). So due to illness, Bittman Thursdays will henceforth be rechristened “Bittman Mondays” (see the fancy logo…yeah that’s about as much as I could muster). I actually made the recipe already and even took the photos. I am just too exhausted to put together my usually (or at least in my mind) witty prose. So check back in on Monday! And send soup!
There are probably a list of things I shouldn’t be allowed to do without adult supervision:
- Play with matches
- Go to the grocery store (I inevitably buy way more than originally intended)
- Okay, anything involving fire
After making these beignets, we should probably add deep frying to this list.
Remember the MarxFoods.com Comfort Food Recipe contest I told you about a few posts ago? Well, the good people over at Marx Foods have selected my recipe as a finalist for the contest! Now it is up to the public to vote for their favorite recipe…and this is where my abject groveling commences. Don’t you want Shaw Girl to win a $250 gift certificate to Marx Foods? It would mean I could share lovely recipes involving truffles, bison and whatever else my grubby little hands can grab. Just head over to the MarxFoods.com site (the badge to the right can get you there in two shakes of a lamb’s tail) and vote for my Roasted Winter Squash Soup!
This is the time of year where we turn to food for comfort…it’s cold, it’s snowing (at least for some…so bummed it’s not snowing here yet) and you want something that makes you feel warm and cozy. I admit it, this is the time I break out the heavy recipes and relish every last bit. Apparently the people over at Marx Foods think the exact same way about this time of year. They are hosting another one of their fabulous contests and this time it’s a call for comfort food recipes! I’m throwing my hat in with my lovely Roasted Winter Squash soup, but there are already tons of great recipes in the running. And what is the fabulous prize this time? Are you sitting down? No? Well perhaps you should because it’s a $250 MarxFoods.com gift certificate (did I mention they sell TRUFFLES)! So head on over before the contest ends on November 17th and give it the old college try!
My ballot’s been cast and tonight I will watch the election results with Carmen, Liz and Patrick…and make those yummy treats I promised you guys if you voted! Happy Election Day everyone!
