Quark With Blackberries

Last week we shared some big news with the boys….we’re going to Germany, Austria and Switzerland.  That’s right, watch out Europe, the boys are coming!  Josh took the day off work (already planned for other reasons) and he went to the German Meat Market here in town.  Among the sausages bought he also got some authentic Bavarian pretzels.  We gave the boys pretzels for their snack when they got home from school and had them make the connection to figure out where they were going.

The rest of the weekend was spent eating other German food, practicing German vocabulary and talking about travel in general.  Jack is my worrier so he wasn’t thrilled at first, fearing the plane could crash over the ocean.  After more talk about all the food they could eat he is warming up to it!

Sunday morning after having weisswurst for breakfast the guys were all outside.  Josh was working in his garage and the boys were playing in the yard.  I took advantage of the quiet and poured myself some prosecco with pear liqueur.  After all, we had breakfast and not brunch so I didn’t get my morning bubbly yet!

In My Kitchen – February 2015

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!
