ONE WEEK AGO…
Matt turned 30!!!
He chose to spend the day with three things he loves most: the bakery, fermentation and his family.
He went in to work in the morning and took a half day to come home and make cheese!
Homemade mozzarella cheese – post coming this week! The mozzarella turned out incredibly delicious. Both the homemade goat cheese and the mozzarella have been really fun to have on hand!
We quickly turned it into a pizza for lunch –
Served with salad on the side
That afternoon we went clothes shopping for both boys.
This was Matt’s first visit to the Charlottesville mall and he would like me to mention his first visit to Bath & Body Works in 15 years! (I wanted to peek inside…)
Once home we headed to Beer Run for a drink and some beer shopping
And then came home to a nice dinner for two – Mazen went to bed early!
We sipped this Schlafly Barleywine I got for Matt with dinner. Thumbs up!!
Every time I ask Matt “What should we make for XX holiday” his response is “Cornish hens!” They’re like tiny whole chickens, and while I think they’re great, they’re just never at the top of my list. So I knew they would make the perfect birthday dinner for him. Baked in a herb + butter rub at 400* for about 40-45 minutes (temperature told me when they were done).
We had roasted acorn squash and canned green beans that we prepped this summer on the side
Cupcakes for dessert, which sadly rolled over when I biked home with them.
But they sure were good!!
