:: I've come to realize cooking has become a main creative outlet for me. It's easier to create the time and space for cooking than it is for sewing. The baby is happier in the sling when I'm moving while cooking or baking. And it's something I can do with the other kids. Evie in particular has become my right hand girl in the kitchen. Here's what we've been enjoying lately.
- This sauteed red cabbage
- This coconut lime banana bread
- This no-knead white bread is divine. (The link also has lots of great tips about bread making in general.)
- I've been loving this easy way to poach chicken.
- Once it's poached, I've been using it to make this chicken salad. I toast the almonds and use cucumbers diced finely instead of celery to give it a little extra crunch. It's simple, quick, and perfect for lunches.
That's what's been going on around here this week. Oh yes, and lots of monitoring of the stairs.
