Happy Wednesday Everyone!
I enjoyed some very delicious food over my Christmas Break! Sometimes I over indulged a bit, but it’s all good, we don’t go overboard everyday all year long so some overeating of cookies for a few days won’t hurt.
We had left over Ricotta from our Christmas Eve dinner so I baked a Lemon Ricotta Bundt Cake. Very delicate and light. A nice refreshing after dinner dessert.
A few months ago I bought the Magnolia Bakery Cookbook. They are my favorite cupcakes ever so I made the Vanilla Cupcakes with the Chocolate Buttercream Frosting. OMG. SO. GOOD. The cake wasn’t as moist as the originals, I think I over-baked them but that frosting. Let’s just say you use 5 sticks of butter to make these cupcakes. Yup nice and artery clogging. Like I said, once in a while, no big deal! 🙂 I also used my new food scale that my Dad got me to accurately measure my flour and chocolate!
Cheese Plate on NYE.
NYE Dinner: Steak, Potatoes Au Gratin and Grilled Fennel. Yes I use Ketchup on my steak, sorry I’m not sorry.
NYD Dinner. More beef with Yorkshire Pudding, Red Cabbage and String Beans with Pomegranate and Almonds.
Post Workout Banana Eggy Oatmeal.
After my Body Pump Practice in the city I wanted to go out for a big and yummy salad. My family and I stumbled upon a new Greek restaurant and really enjoyed it! On the left they give you a sample of an Eggplant Spread, Bagel Chips and Olives. We shared the Lamb Grape Leaves as an app- so good!
I got a big salad with chicken, avocado, tomatoes and blue cheese. Hit the spot.
Eat the Rainbow 🙂
I used my new pasta attachments for my Kitchen Aid Mixer! OMG I don’t ever want to eat pasta from a box again!
This is what my break looked like for most of the time. Relaxingggg.
That is a wrap up of my Recent Eats: Christmas Break Edition!
