November is here already! Where has the time gone? It is time to join Celia at Fig Jam and Lime Cordial for another In My Kitchen post.
It has been another crazy month in the Dalrymple kitchen/house. We celebrated another birthday. Jack turned seven a couple weeks ago. He enjoyed decorating pumpkin cookies for his birthday. He lucked out and had a four day weekend for his birthday which was on a Saturday.
It was a busy birthday too. Not only was it his birthday but also Family Day at Josh’s work. AND after that we headed to Georgia for the Thunderbird Air Show. Like I said, it’s been a crazy busy month, that was just one weekend!
Given the busy day on his actual birthday we had his birthday dinner the night before with his Oma and Opa. Jack chose meatloaf, mashed potatoes and asparagus. Of course the most important part was his pumpkin cake with caramel frosting. This picture is after he blew out the candles and was attacking the candy corn filling! There were also candy pumpkins around the outside, the boys grabbed them first!
I recently got this new cookbook too. I can’t wait to try it out. I already read it cover to cover and am planning to try a cinnamon roll recipe this week. I like how it allows for an overnight rise for the dough. Sometimes my days are so crazy I can’t get bread done with traditional rise times.
Here is what is NOT in my kitchen lately. All the boys started swim practice/lessons a couple weeks ago. Jack and Ewan have practice Tuesday and Thursday from 16:30-17:15 and Sean has lessons from 18:35-19:15. That doesn’t leave much time to go home, eat dinner and get back between lessons.
So here they are eating dinner outside the gym. Then we do homework and have a few minutes to run around before Sean changes and has his lessons! Next week we may have to start eating inside as it is getting cooler out.
