this week in my kitchen :: blog hop
so this series has brought me a good deal of motivation and inspiration, along with just the joy of essentially being invited to spy into other peoples' kitchens- how fun! thanks to inspiration from Stephinie, I tried the steaming method for hard boiled eggs, and am happy to report that those shells were indeed easy to get off. no more messing with vinegar and slowly picking apart the peels!
we are finally at the point with some of the greens that we are able to eat them without completely decimating the plant, hooray! Claire and I had another night this week (like last) that was essentially a box of Annie's mac and cheese, doctored up with broccoli rabe, kale, and parsley fresh from the garden. soon it will be post after post about the garden, I'm sure.
also, inspired by Lisa's post and her beautiful story about making these cupcakes with her son, along with the fact that we had extra eggs and a papa whose birthday came and went last month without a proper celebratory dessert, I made cupcakes. a yum, yum, yum. no one complained. there is but one left, and I think I'm about to frost it and see if we can split it three ways as a lunch dessert...
