I swore up and down I would not spend my weekend in the kitchen. Then I swore I would not spend the Sunday in the kitchen. I vowed I would knit like a woman on fire.
This is why people like me should not go around making any kind of declaration, duh. I'm just a big walking, talking, baking contradiction.
It rained all weekend and honestly it was nice to have a cozy kitchen.
First up were M&M cookies for the soccer team. They had their first spring match in the rain, just like every match I've ever watched of the English Premier League on t.v. hehe. We started off the season with a win! Cookies for all my friends!
Next up were the Nutella stuffed snickerdoodles. I gotta tell you, I was like, "what?" with the things INSIDE the cookie. But people really enjoyed these. The Nutella was a pleasant surprise. I didn't put too much in there, just because.
I meant to get a shot of them while they were still warm, but I was in the throes of everything kitchen. One of The Kids pals came over after homework to play video games and attempted to demonstrate for the cameras ...
sorry that's the best I can do, but I will do these again, and then I will be sure to capture the warm cookie moment for you.
Also on the weekend menu was this Caldo Verde which I am still enjoying immensely. I like that it uses Cauliflower instead of potato. I admit it is a little more labor intensive than some other versions, but it's not overwhelming. My ratios were off and I could've emulsified the cauliflower longer, but tasty nonetheless.
I rushed Saturday night's dinner of Arctic Char and grease burned my hand which has sort of hampered my knitting moves, but I'm on the path of righteousness again, no worries. (Though my hand is ugly and a little sore. Ugh.)
Now back to our regular schedule of work and trying to shove some knitting somewheres in there.
ps: This whole daylight savings thing is really HARD for me. Please send fake sympathy or at least a hall pass for a nap, maybe an extra alarm clock?
