So on Saturday after coming home from work, I was trying to find something to do with kohlrabi. For those of you who don't know what a kohlrabi is, you are in the vast majority of the world. It's a plant that is a cross between a turnip and a cabbage. It ha kind of a sweet, garlicky, potato-ey thing going on, so I was perusing the potato casserole recipes on pinterest, and I came accross this gem of a recipe.
These are called "crack potatoes". They looked fairly promising. However, I can't cook something 100% by a recipe. So we modified like crazy, and made "kohlrabi crack". Changes:
1) Onion soup mix instead of the ranch mix, because Ammon is anti-ranch
2) One pound of turkey bacon instead of bacon bits, because I am morally opposed to bacon bits. We should probably not talk about this, I know most people disagree with me
3) Shredded kohlrabi instead of hash browns. However, I think that most normal people would use the frozen hash browns the recipe calls for
And this is what it looked like
After dinner, one of my amazing bridesmaids and co-workers, Emily, came over to do nails. I had been eyeing this dessert for a while, and decided that we would be partaking.
And oh. em. gee. I did make these by the book, because that's important with baking. Baking does not equal cooking. Wanna see our awesomeness???
If you make nothing else you've ever found on Pinterest, MAKE THESE. So easy, so good.
And then dinner tonight... homemade chicken noodle soup with homemade noodles. I used a generic egg noodle recipe, but I substituted whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour the recipe called for.
