I bought this yellow/grey fabric for a pleated skirt and didn't have enough, but I'm glad it became an incarnation of a skirt after all, and one I'll get lots of wear out of.
So on Sunday, upon returning from a matinee, I was able to crank out both Red Kidney Bean Curry (a perfect combination of easy, delicious and healthy) with jasmine rice, and Pepita Granola (my best granola effort yet; despite the combination of honey/brown sugar/sweetened coconut, this wasn't overly sweet. I found that it needed a mere 15 minutes of baking time and it will now be my new go-to granola recipe).
Then yesterday afternoon there were hand pies. This pastry is just fantastic; it's easy to make, easy to work with, can be used for savoury or sweet, and is flaky and delicious like you wouldn't believe. For my variation on the recipe, I halved the quantity of dough, and made 8 hand pies to get the dough/filling ratio that I was looking for. Instead of peaches (obviously not in season), I sauteed apples with butter, brown sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, and Calvados. My photos of them were really crappy, but rest assured that I died and went to apple-hand-pie heaven.
Next up? Not babka, but indian-spiced vegetable fritters. And dealing with the mess that is my kitchen.
