Thanks so much for all the sweet comments about my bread baking adventure yesterday! Hopefully I will be able to make my next loaf this weekend. I know I’ll probably be out by then. Between my sister and I, we have already consumed half of it!
Breakfast this morning was muy delicioso…and of course, it included bread!
It was hard to get up and go back to work today (I need to do a little research on just how I can get paid to sit at home and bake all day). Of course the day drug along as slowly as possible and then, when it was quitting time, I got to drive home in this:
Muhuhahahaha! Oh, sorry…got a little carried away there.
Annnnnnd, it only took my FOUR tries to get up my driveway!
After getting in, I noticed there was a package waiting for me on the doorstep! A couple of weeks ago Christin and I decided to do a little foodie swap. Trader Joe’s loot in exchange for some local Texas finds! I was so excited to open it…I mean seriously…it was like Christmas all over again!
Woo-hoo! Fruit leathers and Z bars!
And last, but surely not least:
2 minutes 30 seconds later:
Oh my gosh! Words can not even begin to describe these! I’ve only had kale chips once before and apparently I went about it all wrong because mine ended up tasting like grass clippings 🙁 Not these! They tasted like…well, they tasted like I need to go make some of my own…like a friggin truckload! Christin, you are amazing!
After oogling over all my new foodie prezzies, I did a little blog reading. Seems Katie thought today was a perfect day for a stir-fry. I thought so too!
- Buckwheat soba noodles drizzled with toasted sesame oil
- Sweet mini peppers
- Sugar snap peas
- Water chestnuts (thanks reminding me about these little gems, Katie!)
My sauce still needs a little work, but I combined fresh orange juice, orange zest, and grated ginger. Super tasty, just needs a little something.
Well, I’m off here folks. Gonna go round up supplies to make some of those snow shoes that look like tennis rackets…might be needing them to make it to work in the morning!
What is one of your favorite things that you would give as a foodie gift?
Mine would have to be TJ’s Valencia Crunchy PB with Flaxseeds…hope I didn’t ruin the surprise for ya Christin!
