I just started to get hungry for lunch before we boarded our plane and grabbed an apple and a salad to take on board. [So impressed by all the healthy options at JFK!!] SO glad I did because I was ravenous within 20 minutes of taking off!
This salad was incredible!!! Candied walnuts, cranberries and two nice hunks of goat cheese – plus a packed bed of greens.
Dessert came by at just the right time!!! Biscoff tastes even better at a cruising altitude of 30,000 feet!
Lucky us, Karen [Matt’s mom] gave us the celebrity treatment tonight! She picked us up from the airport and had a full gourmet dinner packed to unpack when we got home!
Homemade chicken + white bean chili (topped with Oikos and cheese)
A gorgeous rainbow of a salad
And homemade cornbread!
She brought over this fun bowl her friend Julie gave her to feature on the blog Love the shape!
We celebrated Matt’s birthday last week with a Snickers Cheesecake!
She 2/3ed the recipe, so it wasn’t the most visually appealing, but it tasted great. [Sorry I don’t have the recipe, but it was a pretty traditional cheesecake with Snickers pieces embedded inside]
I was so full from dinner I couldn’t finish my slice, but it was awesome. Snickers is my favorite candy bar!
Open Sky has had such an incredible response to their "Helping Haiti" initiative, that they’ve decided to extend it for a few more days. Many shopkeepers [including KERF] have also volunteered to donate any profits.
As soon as I answer> a few emails I’m headed to take a bubble bath, fold laundry and get in bed nice and early. I’ve got to be at work really early tomorrow, so I need my beauty sleep ASAP.
P.S. The air smells sweeter in the south. Seriously.
