20 August 2010


My in-laws have chickens in their backyard, and while I continue to yearn for birds of my own, we have enjoyed the occasional--and incredibly exciting--gift of fresh eggs.  I'm going through the latest delivery  rather quickly this afternoon as I attempt to fulfill my nephew's birthday wish for "a layer of brownie topped with a layer of chocolate cake topped with a layer of chocolate frosting."  The brownie layer is in the oven right now...

I've been enjoying some extra time in the kitchen this week.  I'm pulling stuff out of cabinets, making piles of things to contribute to the yard sale that must--must--happen soon.  I'm cleaning, decluttering, and rearranging. 

And I am making food.  Mostly, I've been tossing together last-minute suppers, but I've got plans to try some new things in the next few weeks.  If you're looking for some fun in the kitchen this weekend, I hope this to-do list will be an inspiration:

Make your own yogurt.
Ditch your paper towels.
Dream of a fresh kitchen.
Nerd out on noodles.
Label your food.
Get crafty with coffee filters.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

  1. Wow, what a beautiful three layer chocolate cake it was. She shared some of her special chocolate that her Aunt and Uncle send her and boy was it yummy. Rachel's secret is out, she can cook.
