I’m combining the Docket and Present Sense Impressions this week because quite frankly my week was so boring that if I only talked about that you would probably be bored out of your mind. Basically, I’ve been working all week, going to yoga, and making a couple of meals when I have the time. I had several consultations this week and a mediation, along with heaps of other work that needed to be completed. So basically that was my whole week, throw in a car inspection and we’re done. This weekend wasn’t particularly noteworthy either as I wasn’t feeling well so I spent most of Saturday in bed and have been spending today catching up on what my blogroll has been posting.
Here are some of the posts that really caught my attention:
Baked Breakfast Quinoa with Plums and Pistachios … if only I had time to make this! Maybe if I make the quinoa ahead of time? Yes. I think I can handle that.
These Homemade Graham Crackers … covered in chocolate… yes, this is what dreams are made of.
UMM BACON Cinnamon Rolls? As if cinnamon rolls could get more delicious and indulgent. I love this idea. We only have cinnamon rolls the day after Thanksgiving and the Day after Xmas so it’s a pretty special thing in my family… think this could be a fun way to spin them, what do you say?
You may ask, did I really just share 3 How Sweet Eats recipes? Yes. Unequivocally yes. I also just got her book in the mail, Seriously Delish, and I’m so excited!!! Everything looks so Jessica that it’s exactly what I hoped for!
I also got really jazzed about this Warm Gnocchi and Heirloom Tomato Salad. It looks so fresh! Makes me feel like summer isn’t over yet, even though I must face the reality that fall is here.
This Herbed Tomato and Roasted Garlic Tart also reminds me of summer but I think it could be a good transitional dish into fall. Seems simple enough and would be an impressive addition to a pot luck dinner or a dinner party outdoors.
I’m also super into these Paprika Cheddar Cheez-Its. I mean come on! First of all they are homemade cheez-its which I love, but then add a little kick? Sounds like I could eat about 10 handfuls while enjoying some quality time with my Netflix.
And of course it wouldn’t be a proper Present Sense Impressions without some sweetness to round it out. I’m currently obsessing over this Cinnamon Ice Cream, this Amaretti Tiramisu, and this Chocolate Espresso Layer Cake. Cinnamon is my all-time favorite spice. I just love it. There is rarely a dessert that I don’t think would benefit from a lil bit of cinnamon. Tiramisu is one of my absolute faves, as it has some incredible coffee flavors. Both the tiramisu and the chocolate espresso cake address my coffee addiction and that makes me want them even more.
What amazing things have you guys found lately? Next week on “The Docket”: I can’t promise much more excitement, as this week is pretty chock-full of work (mediations, consultations etc.) but hopefully I’ll have some fun things to add
