Sunny morning in the kitchen
On a gorgeous day like today it’s tough to be in the kitchen baking! The garden still needs lots of planting, but at least the brassicas are in; broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, cabbage, as well as quite a few eggplant. (That’s an understatement–9 year old daughter J and I went a little overboard with seedlings this year.)
A crazy schedule this week (including a call for a AAA tow truck and the ensuing replacement of brakes, rotors and a piston or two and no car for a couple of days…) has me baking in the farm kitchen this morning. (As opposed to the amazing commercial kitchen I have access to lately!)
My biscotti order is almost done- 3 dozen chocolate chip and toasted almond dipped in chocolate, a batch of whoopie pies and earlier, a trip down to Rt. 1 to drop off samples.
J (in great helping mode lately!) is making tuna melts for lunch, complete with additions of celery and fresh-ground pepper and her favorite Cabot extra sharp cheddar. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
I’ll be in the garden soon- planting as much as I can before we have to hit the road for an adventure this afternoon.
It’s all good!
