This weekend was lovely. It was productive and relaxing. Here are a few pics of what went down.
Nick working on a bathroom vanity. Sure is coming along!
Bread baking. I haven’t baked a hearty loaf of bread in a while. My mom shared a recipe for “Sunflower Seed and Honey Wheat Bread”. It was yummy! Served it with what we now call “Dirty Gumbo”. Nick started calling it that because the gist of the gumbo was a roux (olive oil and whole wheat flour mixture) that simmers and slowly turns a deep mahogany color. It interestingly develops a unique flavor, but looks dirty. Some daring friends joined us in the “Dirty Gumbo” dinner. No one died.
Actually one thing did die. My favorite cookbook.
I’m sure you can guess what happened.
Cookbook resting. Flat stove. Wrong burner on. Cookbook on fire. Hanna sad. Chicken burning too. Fire out. Chicken saved. Hanna happy. Cookbook stinky. Oh the joy of cooking…
