This week, in our kitchen, we have...
:: been slowly - in newborn naptime increments - been making the shift from the crazy-hurts-your-eyes yellow we inherited with the house to a mellow yellow that makes me happy (even if no one else notices the change). It's Yolo's Grain .01.
:: loved making the walk from garden to kitchen, over and over again, and filling my basket up with goodness.
:: made kale chips nearly every day (I do something similar to this, with a little garlic powder mixed with the sea salt. And yes, it really is yummy on popcorn).
:: stained everything red with all the fresh beets we have been eating.
:: started a sourdough starter from here (the same source for my original kombucha mother).
:: cleaned out, and oh-so-thoroughly enjoyed the last of the 2010 frozen pesto...to make room for more.
:: added strawberries to our pizza (with feta, balsamic vinegar, and sliced almonds. Yum). (Our favorite pizza dough is the recipe from Artisan Breads Every Day).
:: made tarts out of all the raspberries Adelaide discovered behind the pig's pasture (I use the tart crust recipe from Good to the Grain).
:: enjoyed lettuce soup for the very first time, thanks to your suggestions in this post.
:: found any excuse to make whipping cream.
:: brought nearly every meal outside to enjoy. (It all tastes better out there!)
:: been helped all along the way by little hands and voice - the very best of kitchen company, indeed.
It's a busy place, this kitchen of ours.
What's going on in YOUR kitchen this week?
