English Lunch

I had planned a 4 course dinner for our anniversary, but with moving out in 3 days, we are working on clearing out our fridge, not add to it.  There was only one thing on the menu that used ingredients we already had, English Mint-Pea Soup.  With it, I toasted one of my English muffins from the BBA Challenge this week.

chilled minty pea soup:

  • 1 C low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 C shelled peas, plus more for garnish
  • Salt
  • 10 mint leaves
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Bring buttermilk to a boil over medium heat.   Add peas and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Puree in immersion blender with mint leaves and cool in the fridge (or freezer if in a time crunch) until chilled.
  3. Garnish with mint leaves and freshly ground pepper.

img_3443so… it’s chocolate time again, let the cravings begin!  working with what i have in our ‘pantry’, i decided to satiate my chocolate yen with a nice, semi-healthy, batch of bradley muffins.  while fishing around, i found a box of cocoa and some semi-sweet chips and though, why not?unfortunately, i only had a big can of libby’s pumpkin on hand, so i had eyeball the halfway point, and figure out what to do with the second half of can…

i am so naughty!

  • 15 oz. libby’s pumpkin
  • 1 box devil’s food cake mix
  • 4 T dutch process cocoa
  • 1/2 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. mix all the ingredients (chips last) and bake for 23 minutes at 350°.

these ‘muffins’ came out slightly crunchy on the outside, rich and fudgy on the inside.  that is to say – PERFECT.
