I honestly don’t spend that much time at home – lately the only things I’ve been doing here are sleeping, cooking or working on that calligraphy. December didn’t quite work out as planned in terms of cooking all of the meals that I picked out. But I’m happy to report that I made a lot of them! Quite the feat when I look back at how busy the last few weeks were.
Made Squash & Sundried Tomato Soup – which turned into 2 dinners and about 5 lunchs. Needless to say, I was sick of it by the end of the week. I liked my Celery Root soup far better! Got some Artichoke Dip from TJ’s as well for pita crackers. Mmmm.
This was dinner after the Carrot Christmas Cookie Competition. So much sugar. I needed a huge bowl of greens to combat it. Kale, apples, walnuts, sesame seeds & olive oil/lemon/seasoning dressing.
Carrot’s all eat lunch together. One day one of the guys offered to go pick up Chipotle for everyone – turns out 13 people ordered! That’s a lot of food to bring back on a bike. It was much appreciated though 🙂 And even turned into lunch for two days.
For the Carrot Gift Exchange, I got a yellow whisk & apron from Marisa. Super cute! Already had an opportunity to use it as I made cookies last night. Each Carrot for their Birthday gets to pick out a recipe and then it’s brought in (by the Baking Committee) & we all celebrate. Basically like kindergarten.
So last night after work I got started making Nutella Stuffed Brown Butter & Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies. Crazy intense. Made the dough and now it sits in the fridge overnight before I stuff it after work today and bake!
While I baked, I made some veggie pasta with roasted red pepper & artichoke sauce, sesame seeds, pepper and garlic. Mmmm. Yay leftovers for lunch today!
