Well, things are certainly getting busy over here! This morning I went to a lovely yoga class til 9:45 and then came home and snacked on this big honeycrisp apple before deciding on the dessert menu for tomorrow
And the dessert verdict is……………………French black walnut cake with homemade honey thyme ice cream. I’ll be using this cookbook:
This one is a beauty. I just love Amanda Hesser….always have. Her book “Cooking for Mr. Latte” is wonderful as well. She wrote this cookbook/memoir about her apprenticeship at a French home in Burgundy. The recipes are categorized according to the seasons and highlight seasonal produce and traditional Provincial fare. Its a good one!
I made a grilled cheese sammie on olive bread and a big bowl of pacific brand tomato soup for lunch:
And then I went with my mom and Margaret to the tiny Italian butcher/deli to pick up the tenderloin for tomorrow….I think they got about 15 lbs total….wow!!!!!! The shop has an amazing Italian bakery section and I bought a homemade anise biscotti to nibble on-—
Aaaaaaaamazing. I love anything and everything anise and this biscotti was perfectly crumbly and heavenly scented. Delicious 🙂
I’m off to the mall (unfortunately) to pick up some last gifts then to the grocery store (again unfortunately…its going to be insane) to get the necessary ingredients for the dessert. I have to start the ice cream base tonight so it’ll be ready in time for tomorrow.
I hope everyone’s day is going well and if you can find a moment for yoga, I’m sure your body would thank you for it…especially in times of holiday induced stress!! (road rage for me getting to the mall!)
