Weekend Food Plans

Plant herbs in my new Wooly Pockets!!!
Make bread for the inlaws' bbq
Study for Monday's Cooking Final, which will include reading. It may or may not also include roasting a chicken, braising beef or pork, making Hollandaise, reduction sauce, possibly pie crust, a quiche and vinaigrette. I'm exhausted and full already.

There, now that it's out there in the world, I have to do it

Recent Creations

With a little leftover pie crust, I had to make something! So I improvised and threw together a little rustic berry galette. It was delicious. I really probably should have had dinner first, but oh well.
Also shown is a Sazerac (in the juice glass) and the simple syrup I whooped up because I needed it to make said Sazerac. Yum.

I took a Bean Workshop class over the weekend, wherein I made Black Beans, Arroz Blanco and Fried Plantains. Pretty easy, really. The best thing about this dish is that it's like having a meal and dessert at the same time.

Heirloom Tomato Pot Pie

Thanks Rachel Going, for a great recipe! My coworkers even loved it! And I got to practice my pie crust-making skills.
