Merry Christmas! It never fails, the Gourmet Girl and her Mama, have bonding cooking moments when we are on our breaks. This week was no exception. We made peppermint dark chocolate truffles.....yummy and so easy: Ghiradelli dark chips, heavy cream, and crushed candy canes....did we say, YUMMY!
Gourmet Girl kicked her Mama out of the kitchen area to make her pumpkin bread-no assistance. This is a first for her. Let me tell you, I am biased, but that bread was so moist and delightfully tasty. Margaret-Jane increased the oil content and voila- super moist! Margaret-Jane also made some Ghiradelli chocolate chip pumpkin bread-heavenly!!
For the first time in about 19 years, my famous veggie and beef soup was made perfectly. On Christmas Eve, we got to enjoy this with new and sure to be dear friends. Needless to say, Mama burned our famous sweet cornbread muffins-ugh. (Thankful for gracious guests!) Where was Gourmet Girl when I needed her most!!
We hope your holiday's were memorable, meaningful, and Jesus filled! Until we post again-G-d speed to you.
