I have quite a busy morning in the kitchen! Today is the day I am bringing the food to my client at work and I need to make the Tarte Tatin and fill and steam the potstickers first. I’ll be taking pictures, don’t worry. I was at Publix looking for a quick pie dough to use for the tarte and the only ones they sold (Pillsbury) contained LARD….so I just couldn’t do it. I know I’m not eating it but I couldn’t bear to even support that by buying it. So, I’m making my own. I didn’t attempt to create a vegan one because that would take more experimenting than time allows, so I just used a basic butter/flour/cold water recipe. I borrowed a skillet from school to make and bake it in (don’t have an oven safe one and shouldn’t use cast iron for this), so I’m all set. Now I just gotta strap on my apron and get in the kitchen to start peeling 3 lbs of apples!! 🙂
For breakfast I made hot multigrain cereal with 1 tbsp of ground flax, a banana, some pb and maple syrup. Energizing for my morning in the kitchen!
