George Michael Eats: Peanut Butter Biscuits

I gave myself a little pause on this blog because this is supposed to be an enjoyable hobby and there aren't supposed to be any rules or schedules. I think from now on, I'll just be posting occasionally when the mood strikes and when I have something that's actually worth sharing. I mean, I think it's obvious that my passion for this has slowed; I went from posting every weekday to every other day to once a week and to whatever I'm doing now.

That being said, I'm returning from my hiatus with a really fun post. It's become a tradition to make a homemade treat for my dog, George Michael, on his birthday. I'm a bad mom and I don't remember his actual birthdate so I've been saying it's the same as mine. So, every year, we just celebrate his birthday on Thanksgiving. Usually, his cousin Coco comes over so it's a nice opportunity for him to share his birthday treats with a friend (or tolerable acquaintance).

In 2016 I made a full on cake, which in retrospect, I should have maybe saved for 2017 because GM turned 10, which is kind of a milestone birthday. However, 2017 was also the year we wanted to have the most low-key, low-maintenance Thanksgiving (complete with full on pajamas as our holiday outfits) so a quick little biscuit seemed like the most appropriate endeavor.
Ingredients:
½ cup natural peanut butter (no added oil, salt, or sugar)
1 egg, room temperature
½ cup natural applesauce (no added sugar)
¼ cup milk
¼ cup rolled oats
¼ cup finely chopped carrots
¾ cup flour

Thanksgiving 2017 Recap

We had another lovely, low-key Thanksgiving this year. We didn't do anything super extravagant; we stayed with the staples: mashed potatoes, stuffing, mac and cheese, green bean casserole, salad, lingonberry sauce, Texas toast, and roast turkey (duh). Oh, and we made ginger ale.
It was relaxing and delicious and I'm still enjoying the leftovers.

Endive & Gorgonzola Salad

This is yet another recipe inspired by our trip to Lisbon. We ate at an awesome steakhouse one night and one of the sides we ordered was endives with goat cheese and walnuts. They came in individual leaf cups, which I was way too lazy to do myself so I turned the whole thing into a salad.
Ingredients [serves 2 as a main, 4 as a side]:
6 to 8 endives, roughly chopped
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
1 oz. gorgonzola, crumbled
2 tablespoons pepitas (or nut of your choice)
1 scallion, chopped
