Thank you so much for playing, it has been most fun! Check out a few of all the awesome entries:
Jane: I would have the power to form an invisible protective bubble around myself so i wouldn’t feel the outside temperature, but rather, a nice warm 70 degrees. (Me too!)
Amanda: the ability to tap anyone with my magic wand and they would instantly want to go vegan!Kelly. G: I’d wish for the superpower to speak canine (in case of regional/breed differences, the American rat terrier dialect), mostly so I can ask my middle dog to stop eating his brother’s and sister’s poo.MaryBe: …I always thought it would be cool to have a tail! I am klutzy and always thought it would help my balance. (I could use this power!)
Becks: I would like the ability to turn any cat I stroke back into a kitten (as they are all eternal kittens at heart) then they could live long, happy, lives – forever with their pet humans.
So many entries; so many creative superpowers! Keep’em coming!
I’ve been experimenting with the baking powder Biscuity Scones recipe I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. The cooking time and method has been tricky, but I finally found what works best for this recipe. You can add more sugar and some cinnamon, or some sunflower seeds, or whatever you think would work. After trying different variations, I actually prefer the basic version. But my taste buds are plain like that.
|Basic Baking Powder Biscuity Scones
1 cup whole wheat flour
1- Preheat a cast iron skillet on low heat and spray with cooking spray.
I like mine sliced in half and with some Earth Balance, along with some hot tea and a good book. The second-day Biscuity Scones are best reheated in the toaster because they get their outer crispiness back. They of course taste better when cooked in a cast iron skillet, but we don’t bring one on the road so a non-stick frying pan is the next best thing.
Speaking of outer crispiness – affected by another case of the copycats, I made the Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burgers from Jes’ blog (Cupcake Punk). Jes is an awesome photographer and just downright cool and gorgeous person! She’s even an award-winning cake master! :)
These burgers were so tasty and so full of good-for-you ingredients! Quinoa, sweet potato and black beans worked perfectly together, like the cast of Gilmore Girls. We were out of bread crumbs, so I used these corn flake crumbs, which means these burgers can be gluten-free! I coated them with the corn flake crumbs to make them crispy, since we weren’t going to have them in buns.
My plate is tying to channel Katie here, with some kale chips and butternut squash fries!
In the meantime, here are a few more road pictures for you:

Please somebody tell this silly goose that the whole “whassup” thing just isn’t cool anymore.
Like it, Jo? :)
