Look what I found....

My Clavicles!!!! I was flitting around the kitchen tonight in a tank top and caught a glimpse of my reflection in the window and there they were... my old friend collar bone. I haven't seen them in about 10 years. I think they are cute!

I was flitting around the kitchen because I was preparing DH's meals for the week as he is headed back to work out of town tonight. I tried another new ESBM recipe 'Jellystone Pork'

1 tbs butter
1/3 C minced shallots
2 Tbs grated ginger root
1 tsp garlic1/3 C apple jelly
3 Tbs dijon mustard
2 Tbs cider vinegar
1/4 tsp each salt and pepper
1/4 C light sour cream

Sprinkle pork with s&p. Brush grill rack lightly with oil. Grill pork for about 16 minutes, turning occasionally. (Or roast in oven - brush pork lightly with olive oil, sprinkle with s&p, then roast at 350F for about 40 minutes).

To make sauce, melt butter in small skillet over medium heat. Add shallots, ginger root, and garlic. Cook and stir until shallots begin to soften, about 2 minutes. Add jelly, mustard, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Cook and stir for 3 minutes, until jelly completely melts and sauce begins to thicken. Reduce heat to low if it's bubbling too much. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.

Slice pork thinly and drizzle sauce over top.
It was delicious!

Last night I made some oatmeal raisin cookies (DHs favourite cookie) I tried a new lower fat recipe that works out to 2 points per cookie. When they were warm from the over they were kind of fluffy and had a weird texture. After sitting overnight though they were chewy and yummy this morning. So if you try this recipe definitely let them sit overnight. DH said they were not as good as my old recipe but he ate a bunch of them so I think they grew on him. If anyone has any ideas to make this recipe more moist and chewy tips would be welcome.

1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 cups rolled oats
1 cup raisins

Thanks for reading, my clavicles and I are headed to bed now!
