My Week in Food
The week started with a birthday bash for a friend with a “no gifts” directive. I figured dark chocolate pistachio almond bark might be the exception to the rule, especially since the birthday boy is chocolate and nuts nut.
Can meatloaf be described as adorable? Apparently yes. And delicious. Another hit from Sally Kuzemchak’s Dinnertime Survival Guide (I swear she’s not paying me kickbacks).
I made a double batch and stowed the extra in the freezer for school lunches.
Proof that stale bagels are the mother of invention. I cut 3 of them into 1/2-inch slices, layed them in an 8-inch buttered pan, poured eggs whisked with milk, vanilla, and cinnamon over the top. It baked into a tasty French toast. Pass the maple syrup.
This was my kind of “all you can eat” breakfast buffet following a girlie sleepover: yogurt, berries, almonds, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, and honey. A hit.
One of my favorite reads of the week was from Maryann Jacobsen addressing how to handle a food-fixated kids. Good stuff here.
As Mother’s Day approaches, I thought I’d share a post I wrote a while back: The Only Recipe to Follow on Mother’s Day.
I’m having fun over on Instagram these days. You can find and follow me here.
This scrumptiousness is coming your way soon: Homemade Whole Grain Blueberry Hand Pies. Seriously good.
