Well, the kitchen certainly got a workout today. When I got home from the gym (my workout!) I made a batch of chocolate-chip-plus cookies (milk chocolate & semisweet chocolate chips, plus mini m&m’s) for small group this evening. Then to use up some pears I made a batch of mini loaves of pear bread. I froze all but one of the small loaves. Justin can enjoy another one (or three) while I’m away.
The kitchen was a bit of a mess by then, so I gave it a quick cleaning. Have you seen or tried these cleaning wipes? They’re great! I like the “lavender” scent, mainly because it doesn’t have a cleaning chemical smell. They were in a bundle on clearance at Target, and I thought I’d give ‘em a shot. Very handy.
Then a very yummy dinner – maple soy salmon, roasted fingerling potatoes (from Saturday’s Farmer’s Market), and a new recipe for cauliflower – roasted with carmelized onions and Spanish smoked paprika and just a dusting of cocoa powder – very unique, but also very good! And then Travis offered to do the dishes that couldn’t go in the dishwasher (I knew there was a good reason for letting him stay!
After dinner I went out to check out our raspberry bushes – what a bounty! I probably should have been checking them a few days ago, but not too many had fallen off yet. I had been planning to bring them to small group to share, but Travis would have none of that and claimed them for his breakfast!
