In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu

We had Snowmaggedon arrive here in Kentucky last week. My husband wasn’t even able to get out to work for 3 days. We knew the storm was coming, so I prepared a lot of food ahead of time. We also made a large pan of brownies, and chocolate cookies for snacking.

We ended up not losing electric, thankfully, so I was able to cook more during the week. One thing that I made was a homemade Boston Cream Pie. I’ve eaten it many times, I’m from Massachusetts, but I had never made one before. It came out really good!

It may look perfect in the picture, but keep reading to see how it isn’t!

Doesn’t this look yummy?! It was! lol Too bad it’s gone now. I would love another slice! Oh, I used this recipe for Boston Cream Pie.

Boston Cream Pie Slice

While it may look perfect, check out the back. For some reason that was a lot more frosting than there was cake. lol When I poured the frosting over it, it ran down the back, around the plate, and onto the counter. I didn’t get a picture of the counter, and I cleaned up the edge of the plate for the picture. But I sure made a mess! lol

My family sure can eat a lot when they are all stuck in the house, bored. lol So I ended up having to cook more than I normally do. One day, I made pancakes and turkey bacon for lunch. This big pile of pancakes, plus 3 than my son had already put on his plate were soon gone.

I baked the bacon. It’s so much easier than frying!
