I am joining Celia over at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial again for another In My Kitchen post. What a busy month we had in September.
First my mom returned from a trip to Europe. She and my dad went to Amsterdam and then traveled in Germany. My mom went to an art class in Berlin and did some shopping there. Among the goodies she bought were chocolate for us. She went to the Ritter Sport store where you can design your own chocolate bar. Imagine the fun the boys would have there!! She brought back a custom bar for each of the boys and one for me and Josh along with some Jamaican rum chocolates. My friend Jens also sent some seasonal flavors home with my dad, thanks a bunch! Yummy!
My mom also got me a bunch of glasses and some cookie cutters. I still need to perfect the thickness of the cookie dough to get the best imprint design. I haven’t even decided how to use the glasses yet, but I’m sure you’ll see them at some point on the blog again! I also love the little bottles and little pottery crock.
We also had two birthdays in September. Josh turned 40 and had red velvet cake, with an alien courtesy of the boys! Sean turned 4 and had an apple cake with caramel frosting and chocolate sprinkle dinosaurs!
Sean has also been quite the helper in the kitchen this month. He enjoys helping mommy while his brothers are at school. I made him some dinosaur cookies for his birthday and let him decorate them all by himself. He was over the moon THRILLED! Normally I do the decorating since I want them to look nice but this year I figured we would eat them ourselves and Sean could have at it.
And finally here is my new cutting board from Michael’s Woodcraft. I absolutely adore it and can’t wait to use it more on the blog and for entertaining. It is pictured with two baking pumpkins I bought at Trader Joe’s yesterday. I don’t have high hopes of my pumpkin plants producing anything and yesterday was the first day of October….I can’t wait any longer and must begin baking with pumpkin!
