In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu

I didn’t take any food pictures last week!

I guess I was still recovering from the big spaghetti dinner fundraiser.

We had a lot of spaghetti and sauce left over from the dinner, so I put it in the freezer. Well, this week we used a couple of bags.

I spent last week in the kitchen getting ready for a huge spaghetti dinner fundraiser that we hosted. My daughter is raising money for her mission trip this summer.  I made all the food for 200 people!

It’s been a long time, as in a couple of years, since I made homemade English Muffins. I decided it was time to rectify that situation last week. I had my daughter mix up the dough, and I did the cutting and cooking.

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!
