I'm usually wicked tired on fridays and don't feel like cooking before I have to go back in to work, so I try and keep it simple. this friday, I made some noodles and just sauteed some garden veg to go in there with them. I steeped some aromatics in chicken stock, and then cooked the noodles in that broth before I combined everything. Brocolli, sugar snaps, snow peas, onions, and carrots (not garden). Pretty tasty...pretty easy.
The baguette picture is from the farmer's market bake. I lowered the temperature of the water that I used in the white-yeasted dough, and it made for an excellent end-product. The "ears" of the baguette really popped up and we had some amazing bread that day. Of course, I must credit Marth's baguette-shaping skills, those definitely helped. Anyway, just thought I would share a pic of what I do, hope you all are getting to the market and getting some great bread, if not, you really need to. Better yet, stop in at the bakery and pick some up. Super fresh, super tasty. If you stop in early, say hi to the dish (nerdy guy, dark glasses, covered in flour) There is no excuse to eat crappy bread.
other photo is of some banana nut muffins we made yesterday. It was wifeshow's mama's recipe. they are really, really good. Would love to share the recipe with you cats, but don't know if it's a family only thing, have to ask. Or you could marry the last reitz girl...but she has a boyfriend, so the odds aren't in your favor.
