I am completely in love with the weather we have had this weekend. Even though the illustrator
had to work all weekend (he says we like to eat and I don't disagree), I wanted to find some way to celebrate the weather and show a little appreciation for all the hard work he does for us. So, we opened up the windows and I grilled up a fantastic Sunday dinner last night.
Super huge portobello mushroom with quickie roasted potatoes (microwaved then baked) and green beans with nutritional yeast.
The boys rarely eat beef, so I got them the good stuff...it was a treat.
I took the warmth outside as an opportunity to make ice cream too since I have been craving it like a mad woman lately. I stocked up on xanthan gum a couple of weeks ago when I saw a sale at the grocery store. I have been waiting for it to get warmed up enough to start experimenting.
Vanilla Soft Serve...recipe coming this week!
Watch out, ice cream recipes are going to be common on here now that I have figured out how to use xanthan gum in them...the texture is incredible!
After dinner, the illustrator made some amazing caramelized bananas with homemade vanilla ice cream! HEAVEN!
The one outing I had this weekend was to meet up with some local bloggers. It was so nice to see everyone and I love getting together with people that you have an instant connection with. We went to a place called 5 Seasons
which is a brewery that uses local organically grown produce. I did not bring my camera, so I got this picture from Tina
What's your favorite flavor ice cream? I am looking for suggestions. I also made an orange honey cream with a pomegranate swirl that is amazing. I am normally a vanilla girl, but the flavors of this are incredible. That recipe is coming too!
I hope everyone has a great week!
