Sunday dinner is a big thing at our house. My husband loves to grill something special. Today it was pork loin prepared with a savory rub and cooked on a smoker grill. He spritzes it with apple cider to keep it moist. Can I say heaven on Earth? Meanwhile, I made a rosemary Parmesan skillet bread and for dessert my mom's apple crisp. Only I use homemade apple pie filling, instead of plain apples. With Hygge, a meal is a process to be enjoyed. My husband takes pride in smoking and grilling things to perfection. I enjoy baking, so bread and desserts are my contribution.
Skillet breads are fast and easy this one only took 1 1/2 hours. I found the recipe at the handletheheat.com website. Rosmary/Parmesan Skillet Bread2 1/4 t. yeast
2 c. warm water
4 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 t. salt
2 T. fresh chopped rosemary
Spread 2 T. olive oil in the skillet and and on the bread. Bake in skillet at 400 degrees for 25 min. Top with 1/4 c. Parmesan cheese and more chopped rosemary. Bake another 10-15 minutes.
Mom's Apple Crisp
1 c. oatmeal
1 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. flour
1 c. butter (I'm notorious for cold butter, so I cut it into little slabs when I add it to the mix)
1 t. cinnamon
Try to keep it crumbly and cover the apples. I have added to the recipe that I just use my frozen apple pie apple mix. I thaw it in a sauce pan. I think the added butter, sugar, and cinnamon adds even more. Yum. I bake it at 350 until the top looks done.
I am tired of winter, but it is good to just relax. Anyone that has read my blog for any length of time knows that I'm usually up to my elbows in projects. When the weather warms up, there will be no stopping me. For now, I will make the best of what hygge filled winter Sundays have to offer. I hope this helps anyone else that is struggling with this long cold February. Happy Hygge.
