Today is a rather exciting day for me, as I am about to start packing my bags for a flight to Ohio tomorrow morning. My best friend's fiance bought me a ticket to fly out and go wedding dress shopping with the bride to be. It was supposed to be a surprise up until I walked in the front door of their house, but I couldn't keep it in any longer! She kept sending me these really sad text messages saying "I wish you were here" and "I am not as excited to go dress shopping as I should be, because you wont be here." Needless to say, I ended up telling her 5 days before my flight, and we bought the flight a month ago! So I think I did pretty good.
Anyway I will be MIA for about a week and I will have all sorts of goodness to blog about when I get back. I will be attending a wedding Saturday, doing engagement photos for the bf, and going wedding dress shopping!
For now I will leave you with some photos of recent foods I have made. Do not look at these pictures if you are hungry!
Last Thursday Danni came over and we attempted to make French Macarons. I think they would have turned out perfect had I had a circular pastry tip. Instead I just put all of the Macaronage in a plastic freezer bag and cut a tip on the corner. They still tasted really good and my neighbor's kids really liked them! Haha.
Over the weekend my husband and I grilled, and I made grilled corn for the first time. Okay, so I am kind of dumbfounded how is it that I am from Ohio and have never had grilled corn!!!!!?? (Anyone from or been to Ohio knows the corn fields come in abundance, and we have the best sweet corn! In my opinion.) I could have easily eaten just the corn for dinner. This is what we did.
- Pull down corn husks (do not remove), remove silk, put husks back up over corn.
- Soak in water for 30 minutes.
- Pull husks back down, brush melted butter on corn, add salt & pepper. (I added a bit of garlic powder too)
- Put husks back up, wrap in foil, grill for 30 minutes.
- Once the corn was done, I removed the husks and let it grill on the rack for 2 minutes.
Late last night I got a hankerin' for some hummus. I used a red pepper recipe my dear friend Tia gave me. And a recipe for naan that Sophie linked me to! Recipe here. I sprinkled a teeny bit of paprika on my finished naan. It turned out great, and that is what I had for breakfast this morning.
Hopefully you didn't gain 5 lbs just looking at those photos. I'll be back next week with tons of photos I hope! Have a great week!
