It seems another month has come and gone, where does the time go? It was another busy month in our kitchen. We missed our kitchen dearly when we were out of town for a family funeral, I do so dislike eating out for every meal while away from home.
This past month I bought The New Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day for my Kindle app on the iPad. Needless to say we’ve been enjoying the results. The boys are especially loving the brioche bread. The first photo is Bostock made from a brioche loaf. The second photo is of brioche rolls with mini chocolate chips. I may have created monsters, the boys want brioche all the time now!
As I mentioned we were out of town for a family funeral. The boys were beyond thrilled when they saw this bouquet arrive from Josh’s company. It is from Edible Arrangements and was quite delicious. The company advertises on television and the boys said they always wanted one of those! The doves are slices of pineapple covered in white chocolate, yum! I didn’t get the picture taken until after we attacked it, there were six doves and a lot more other fruit as well!
This past weekend we went to Whole Foods after the farmer’s market. I browsed the dairy section and it seems I had a yogurt craving! I was also thrilled to find Quark. I so enjoyed it while living in Germany and it is difficult to find here. I haven’t decided how I’m going to use it yet.
Also this past weekend Josh took the boys to the store 6:30 Sunday morning. Why, they like to wake up early! He figured he would run out and get supplies for dinner (chili for the Super Bowl) and while there it seems they all decided they wanted crepes for breakfast. Josh is the crepe master in the house so the boys love to watch closely. Inspired from a restaurant we went to recently Josh made caramel crepes with bananas. They were a huge hit! Is there anything better than weekend breakfasts?!
Finally we have today’s lunch. Last week when Josh was out of town I made this a couple times and enjoyed it. It is wonderful on a cold winter’s day. All right, it isn’t as cold or snowy here as the Northeast or Midwest, but it’s still winter! This is a warm and hearty dish of a baked sweet potato topped with crumbled feta cheese and sautéed mushrooms and green beans.
