For dinner tonight I made Home made bread bowls and crock pot stew.
Love Bug helped me with forming the bread bowls.
They are actually really easy.
This isn't the recipe I used. This one is from

"Instead of offering bread with you favorite kettle creation, our Test Kitchen home economists suggests serving it inside of these bread bowls!"
2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (110 degrees to 115
1 cup warm milk (110 to 115 degrees F)
1/2 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons salt
6 cups all-purpose flour
1. In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, shortening, sugar, eggs, salt and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. I just left it in my kitchen aid for about 4 minutes kneading.
2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into eight pieces; shape each into a ball. Grease two baking sheets and sprinkle with cornmeal. Place four balls 3 in. apart on each prepared pan. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
3. For bread bowls, cut a thin slice off the top of bread. Hollow out bottom half, leaving a 1/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Fill with chili, chowder or stew.

When AllMyLove came home today from work he told me about these cookie bowls he saw on Bowls made out of cookie! He said they cooked them on the bottom of cupcake pans. So I looked it up on line and found a site I could work with of course now I cant find that site. But anyways...
Since I just a bunch of cookie mixes from the truck load sale
I just went ahead and used one of those.
Snickerdoodles!!!!! But you can use any kind of cookie.
So you make up the batch and then get two peices of wax paper. Roll your cookie dough into a ball and then slide it between the two sheets.
I just used my fingers to spread out the dough to a circle.
Then I laid it over the spread bottom cup cake pan.
Just to let you know I put way to much on. They wound up growing way too much. lol
You could probably just over lap the rim, barely. When they bake they'll grow down the sides.

Since mine were still warm when I removed them from the pan I put them in a bowl.
A Snickerdoodle bowls with vanilla ice cream.

And even though I think I totally ROCKED tonight...
I had one child refuse the stew and another act disgusted when I gave him his dessert.
And thats my life....
