It's been a loooong time, hasn't it? Finally, I'm back with you, and I will share with you later on what has been going on, but for now I'd like to get to some food, since it's been a while. Before I do move on to foodie goodness, however, I do want to sincerely thank those of you that left thoughtful notes and sent caring e-mails. I was touched by the kind sentiments, and grateful to have that goodness sent my way.
I haven't been cooking much the last couple of months, just getting basic meals on the table most nights. Nevertheless, I do have quite a few pics on file from the summer to share with you.
*As a side note, speaking of getting meals on the table, these last few months I have been stunned at how much our 7 year old can now eat! Parents always speak of how much food teenagers (especially when active) consume, and I think I am getting a glimpse into those years. Our daughter inhales food at dinner hour, and her lunch comes back from school with not a morsel remaining. Hubby and I remember when she was a preschooler and we'd be highly irked watching her pick and nibble at every meal, as if it was a chore to eat. At the time, we thought she'd always be that way. Now, I notice myself planning a meal thinking "will this be enough?", since she can eat more than me most nights, and almost as much as hubby! Youthful metabolism, gotta' love it!
Getting back on track and back to food... This is a new recipe that I finished at the end of summer. It is a Coconut Lavender Vanilla Bean Panna cotta.
Quite breezy to make, and creamy without being overly rich. Yes, I have been working on many new recipes, and so I've decided to groom them for a new project. I don't have details to share just yet, but will let you know when I do!
Before I go, don't forget to enter the Salba Oct giveaway if you haven't already. Also, a note about my e-mail. I've been getting a lot of spam lately, so if you've e-mailed me and I haven't e-mailed back, then please e-mail again, trying another subject line. I don't want to lose your e-mails! :)
Good to be back with you guys... I'll have more soon! Happy cooking!
