So, I must have had a bit of energy this evening, cuz I felt like cooking/baking. I found out I received a free Red Box Code today so, on my way out I came across a little recipe book from some grocery store?? for Hummus (yummy). Figured out what I needed and decided to pick them up while getting the Red Box. As I was searching in the cabinet for the extra can of garbanzo beans I forgot to buy at the store (dah), I came across a can of Solo Poppy Seed filling. Ding! Hubby found the garbanzo beans, score!! Made some killer hummus and bought some pita bread to go with. Abbi and I ate it up (nobody else likes it). Until we gave some to Cullen, He likes it! He Likes It!!
I am totally all over the place on this one. Anywhoo. After our taco dinner, I noticed we had sour cream left over and I remembered the can of poppy seed filling and I am starting to sound like a Nancy Drew novel, so I thought I would make a Poppy Seed Bundt Cake. You know the recipe on the inside of the label. Funny story there. My husband's Nana always told him she had a very special recipe for her Poppy Seed Cake and one day she wrote down the recipe and gave it to me. Whoo Hooo. I couldn't wait to make it. Then I noticed the label on the poppy seed can peels off and there is a recipe back there, wait! The same exact recipe as Nana's!! Nancy Drew all over again. I broke the news to the hubbs, he could not believe it, but it is still Nana's recipe. They just stole it. Darn Solo people :)
I digress. There was not enough sour cream for my cake tonight, but the hubbs was nice enough to get more. How kind?? Did I tell you this is his favorite and I only make it at Christmas. It felt a little like Christmas today, he he. Did you know that Christmas is less than 6 months away?? Just thought I would tell ya.
I must have had too much sugar today :0. Had a nice night watching Gnomeo and Juliet with the kiddos, cute movie. Now, I am off to bed to brave another day at work (blah). Happy Tuesday (almost) everyone.
Count down to Christmas 2011
