Weekend Recap: Feeding Frenzy

Friday: Dinner out and about celebrating another year together or as the joke in our house goes... For-EH-vahhhhh and Eh-vaaahh.

Trio of creme brulee L to R: Pumpkin, Classic Vanilla, Butterscotch

Saturday Soccer Mom Snickerdoodle Morning. Alas it was another loss, but another wonderful season with a great team of kids and families. It's been really wonderful watching these kids grow as they play season after season together.

a little heavy handed with the cinnamon, I was in a hurry ...

Saturday Evening Eats. The nephew came over to spend the night while his parents went out to celebrate my sis's birthday. So I roasted a chicken, The Manfriend made gravy and we watched "The Ewok Movie". Also known as Return of the Ewok ;)

I admit to preferring a 4 side sear in a cast-iron skillet before roasting
Sunday night comfort food. Thai rice porridge (jok). Toppings: chili bamboo shoots, savory thai omelet, cilantro, fried garlic, sauteed cabbbage and spinach, pork belly bits.

When food feels like hugs
There should be some ebelskeivers with jam and chocolate chips in here too, and a slider and tattertot lunch etc., It was a lot of cooking and dishes -- made it easier to motivate for exercise. Everyone seemed happy with their eats and that makes it well worth it.

* I know a few of you silent passer-throughers will see the duplication from Instagram, sorry it's not 100% fresh today ;)

  4. forever is better :) love the rice porridge as well, I haven't had that in a long time.

  5. Mmm, that's some very delicious looking food. We had a soccer loss at the weekend too, as well as a victory. But we didn't have a Saturday Soccer Mom Snickerdoodle Morning, I feel it would all have been a lot happier if we had. CJ xx
