In the kitchen

IMG_0406 IMG_0431 IMG_0419 IMG_0427IMG_0565I seem to be going through phases of smoothie-making. When most of us were poorly recently, and lived on bouillon and tea for a week, we had a lot of fruit left over that was past its best: smoothie time.
The contents of our fruit bowl inspired some new smoothie flavours. I hadn’t thought to put clementines in before, but why not. I even managed to sneak in an avocado without anyone noticing or complaining!
There also was lots of bread, and I’ve always wanted to try bread and butter pudding. Such a traditionally British dish, I’ve never tasted it, and always had a strange interest – I mean, a dish of soggy bread? Hmmm..
I used this recipe (with milk instead of cream, and minus the nutmeg) and it turned out surprisingly popular.
Not at all popular were a batch of cheese scones with olives. I made them for the men because they all love olives so, but they were less than impressed.
Oh well, onwards and upwards.

What’s been happening in your kitchen these days?

    Always love to hear about your baking. We’ve all been itching to get back to the oven now that our weather is finally cooling off a bit. The kids keep asking to make cookies and I’ve been thinking a lot about homemade granola. Maybe you’ve finally inspired me to play at fall, even though the weather is only halfway there.
