Well, after our fabulous out-food weekend, settling back into our food routines is comforting. Light food seemed in order… as light as food during the winter can be. No great big rich chocolate cakes, no dense veal cakes, and not many other cakes to be found. Instead, Laura made us soup and salad using root vegetables and the last of our salad greens.
Eating out is really nice sometimes. We definitely appreciate someone else cooking for us when we do go out. Yet, eating at home is ultimately the most appreciated, since we know who made it, with what food stuffs, and how it was made. Seeing it all come together and sitting down to your hard work is gratifying. Even simple meals like this one have their charms.
Dessert happened as well, of course. Not a super sweet dessert, but a tasty one that was also prep for this morning’s breakfast.
We ate these with spring honey for dessert, and they were lovely. Very summery tasting, with the corn and light honey. Numbly. They were also used to make a super breakfast this morning.
On the side, for snacks, Laura made herself tasty little snack balls of oats, walnuts, cocoa and honey. They were really tasty, very dense and welcome in the fact that they used up the last of several jars of honey that had less than an inch lingering on the bottom. I won’t be suprised if they are mostly gone when I get home tonight.
Happy Wednesday everyone! Lots to look forward to, CSA distribution!
