Sunday Musings - My week

I had plans this week, plans to explore a couple new recipes, try out some new stuff, but as so often happens, life got in the way.

In a good way that is.

We had dinner at a friends house last weekend and I made some cupcakes to bring, cause I was asked to bring dessert.
These are Black Forest Cupcakes, and I didn't get a great shot of the finished cupcakes, but here they are anyway.  I made some Ganache for the frosting, and then piped it on and finished with a cherry on top.

And then we got invited to go for a boat ride one day, and that was fun. I made cookies to take along.  Some Oatmeal Chocolate Chip and some Kitchen Sink cookies.  We finished off the day by going out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant.  The second time we've eaten there recently and it was so good.
Really.
I'm up for going there again, soon.

I basically did the tried and true most meals this week, Chile Verde, Taco's and Huevo's Ranchero's.
I love it when I get the yolk nice and 'dippy' as my friend Donna says.  The yolk makes such a great addition to the sauce.  (these pictures were all taken with my camera, I was too lazy to go and get the 'big' camera out).

Huevos Rancheros
I also made some Meatballs in Mushroom gravy (soup), simple and yet I like it.

Along the way I did play with one new recipe, and as soon as I get that one down, I'll share it.   But as a teaser...
I made some cultured butter, and it tasted pretty darn good.    I'll share the how to's on that soon.  I want to try it one more time before I get into specifics.

Well, that was my week, and who knows what is going to come my way over the next few days.

Although I do have plans for that cauliflower I have in the fridge and the eggplant and mushrooms and...

Monday is also Boat Club, can't wait to see what everyone brings.  I'm making French Waffles.
Cause I can.
