I hate being trapped inside. I always have. I can putter outside and not be bored but once I'm in the house puttering I'm completely bored. I needed to find a way to amuse myself that was different then scrolling through FB posts.
So I turned to cooking and baking.
It started with me making a stew and wanting some sort of bread to go with it. I decided to try making my own bread.
|It was delicious.|
Then oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips.
Then last weekend a couple girlfriends and I went to a Wine and Lobster event at a local winery.
|The joys of living on the coast|
It was amazing.
Each little course was accompanied by a different wine. The chef came out to describe the dish and then the wine owner described the wine and why they chose it. Each taste of wine was about 1.5 ounces. But they were pretty liberal with the wine and topped up freely.
Part way through no one was listening to the chef or wine owner oner anymore. We were all having too much fun. I tried to listen but honestly I don't remember.
|This lobster taco was my favourite. I thought of 'L' while I was |
Spring better come soon. Poor Shanea will be teaching two marshmallows. How are you passing the winter?
Teaching two marshmallows perfectly describes me and Cinna 😂😂😂 that lobster/wine event sounds epic! And your baking photos have been make me so hungry!ReplyDelete
LOL, Marshmallows unite! That lobster/wine event was fabulous. Sorry to make you hungry. But if you deliver me a saddle I will bake for you..... :)Delete
.......aaaaaaand now I'm very hungry lol. Make that *three* marshmallows lol ;)ReplyDelete
Sorry! I love to bake.Delete
Ha, I just posted about my winter. Lots of non-riding and I am just now working to get into a shape that isn't round. Sounds like a great night for you though! And I totally want to try making sourdough bread but I totally don't want to do the work. Such a lazy baker I am.ReplyDelete
I want to try Irish Soda bread next.....Delete
I was in the Maritimes a couple of years ago for a week - I think I had seafood for all but two meals. Probably a good thing I don't live out there!ReplyDelete
You have to let me know if you come back. I enjoy lobster but I prefer scallops. We could have have so much fun....Delete
I am hungry from reading this. It looks deliciousReplyDelete
Sorry! But it really was good.Delete
I just told J yesterday that next time we're in America, he has to try lobster. He's never had it (nor crab). Like most Germans, he's afraid of seafood, and the thought of cracking a shell to eat makes him queasy. So I'll have to try to find lobster or crab out of the shell.ReplyDelete
I bet he would like a lobster roll- no cracking of shells required.Delete
Baking is a lot of fun but then I eat it all and can’t fit into my pants.ReplyDelete
This is totally my dilemma!Delete
Looks so good! I miss gluten! I have not mastered the art of baking gluten free bread. And I love baking bread!ReplyDelete
I’ve had gluten free bread and like it. Is it hard to get it to rise?Delete
Wine and lobster?! Um. Give this to me. Every day. I don't care if my cholesterol is off the charts and I'm obese.ReplyDelete
It was deliciousDelete
Our winter seemed to have ended about three weeks ago. Canada geese everywhere. Ground is soft. Snow is gone. Temps to hit 49 on Friday. A patient told us he has a tulip coming up!! My arena is good to go, but the trails are still icey because of the trees. This is not typical winter weather. But I’ll take it! Your comfort food looks yummy and that wine and food pairing dinner looks amazing!!ReplyDelete
It sounds lovely. I’m hoping that ours go soonDelete
That is a LOT of baking! For being married to a professional baker, I don't get much baking done at my house... I've been reading lots of mystery novels in the evenings!ReplyDelete
Ah, it's like me- I'm married to an accountant so I never do any taxes. :DDelete
I can bake ONE thing in a day, forget multiple things. With only the Mr & I to eat it, I've had to learn to scale back my recipes or we are eating one thing half the week.ReplyDelete
I take care of my GrandAmy 2 days a week, I read a lot in the winter, I binge Netflix when Mr Shoes is at work. And I make a lot of fires to stay warm.
Pretty boring life here - I could REALLY use a lobster & booze day...
My comfort food is tacos <3ReplyDelete
