The last week of March, umm what? Seriously this is crazy. The change of seasons though means new menu options though. As spring comes in I look forward to grilling again and more salads. Yum!
So this past weekend I made the Rainbow Spring Dessert for a church potluck. Now I’m not sure when I’ll ever learn to pay attention to the recipes before I start baking them but once again I ran into trouble. I didn’t start until 9:00 at night and the first ingredient in the list was a cube of butter. Well I’m from Canada and we don’t use that term here so I had no idea how much a cube of butter is. I remembered in the States you have sticks of butter which are 1/2 cup so my gut reaction was that was it. I then did a quick google search and it looked like my guess was correct. However after making the dessert with the 1/2 cup butter, my crust was totally crumbly and didn’t hold together at all. So I’m assuming more butter was needed, what do you think? It was still absolutely delicious though, crumbs and all. So delicious in fact this is the only picture I was able to get, oops :)
The other dish we really loved was the Easy French Dip Sandwiches. I love quick and easy meals for busy nights. So good!
