Because the recipe says not to use ultra-pasteurized milk and I accidentally bought that. I don't know how it would effect the recipe, but with all the stomach bugs going around here I certainly do not want to give myself food poisoning.
So instead I tried to make Frito candy. That recipe also came from crockpot365.blogspot.com I didn't really follow her recipe exactly and I probably should have mine turned out bad. It was really greasy and never came together so it was a total flop. I may try again following her recipe exactly though.
I did make some blackberry jam today though! I had to buy plain yogurt to have as my starter to make yogurt and so in an effort not to waste it I thought I would make something to mix into it so that it is good! All I did was take a washed 4 oz pkg of blackberries and 2 tbsp. of sugar in a sauce pan and brought that to a boil. Then I poured it into a glass container with a lid and put it in the refrigerator. I probably could have made a big batch and canned it but blackberries aren't in season so that would be expensive! I also bought some blueberries to make some blueberry jam and I will probably do that tomorrow.
If you are looking for a great dinner idea that is really awesome and not that hard to make head on over to thepioneerwoman.com and try her lasagna. Brian seriously loves it. This one is definitely a man pleaser!! It goes great with the bread sticks recipe I posted a little while ago!! See now you have one less meal to plan!!
Here's a link to the recipe:
And I actually think that the meat mixture makes enough for two lasagnas so I made two and froze one. Just double everything except for the meat sauce mixture.
