A chocolate cake, from scratch, with cream cheese frosting. After it was frosted it ended up on the floor! Thankfully we live a block away from a grocery store.
Strawberry ice cream, fresh!
Shredded pork. Have you ever tried to cut the fat from pork? It really suck! Even though the pork turned out really yummy, I may spend the extra money next time and get it trimmed!
We also had Cesar salad with freshly grated Parmesan and I made a peppermint-green tea with a splash of maple syrup.
I actually really like to cook, and especially to bake! I tend to want to over-do it when we have get-togethers but I think lots of people do. Right? I got lots of compliments on the ice cream! I used fresh strawberries, whole milk, sugar and heavy cream. It tasted just like when I was little and my Nana would make ice cream. I don't do the whole "low-fat, sugar-free, low-sodium" stuff when I have people over. I just can't do it! I like when food tastes like food. When you taste something and it takes you back to a place and time that you haven't thought about in years!
What I did not finish was the Belle costume I have been
Anyway, I'll save that rant for another day. Here is the picture my dad sent me of the (almost) finished project:
Just needs a wee bit of pretty paint!
How close am I to done with that costume?
I will let you know Monday if I get any sewing time in! As it is, I've been up since 6 am and it is almost 10:40 pm and I still have to feed the baby and get her back to sleep!
