  1. Thankful

    Thursday, November 22, 2012

    This year we did not do our own Thanksgiving, instead we joined my fiance's extended family. 
    I made stuffing to share - one of my favorite dishes in Thanksgiving - but didn't realize that they were doing traditional Mexican party food. Posole. Oops. 
    Didn't really go. But we ate it anyway, and the posole was of course delicious too. 
    Aria had lots of fun running around in the limited space with all her cousins, and we even went shopping after the meal. We went to Target and Walmart since they both opened on thursday evening.
    I'm so thankful for my little family that I have. My fiance and our daughter make my life complete.
    On another note, I have been drinking at least one cup of honey-lemon tea a day this past week. I'm not sure if I'm starting to get sick or if I just have a dry sore throat due to the dry air. It's very irritating. But making this homemade tea in the morning and evening has really helped.
    It's a very simple recipe.. It's just hot water, honey and lemon juice.
    I use half a lemon and about 3 teaspoons of my orange blossom honey in the bottom of my mug and then pour the hot water over and mix it with a spoon. It's delicious and easy.
    On Tuesday I made THREE baked desserts. And they weren't even for me. I made a pumpkin cheesecake, a pumpkin pie, and an apple pie. A co-worker of my fiance needed desserts for his "Friendsgiving" that he was going to and so my fiance offered up my baking skills. Lucky me. He did pay me though, which was nice. And I did end up with extra pie filling, so I'll make some apple hand pies later and I used the leftover pumpkin pie filling to make pumpkin creme brulee. 

    I don't have a blowtorch, so I made my creme brulee under the broiler. As you can see it didn't melt very evenly - but it still tasted delicious, so I don't really care. :]

     My breakfast a couple days ago. Sauteed lemon-pepper asparagus with sunny side eggs done to medium. Delish.
