I cannot believe Christmas is next week! December flew by in a flash. Some exciting things that have happened so far this weekend:
1. I made Caroline’sdouble chocolate cookies . They are amazing! I had never used bread flour in cookies and I love what it does to the texture/flavor. Caroline- you are so sweet AND talented!!
2. Josh and I went on a date to Crave . Josh’s parents and siblings watched Kay for us (thank youuuu!) and we had adult time. We nibbled on their incredible bread. I’ve said it before…but I think I could eat a whole loaf of their delicious raisin bread. Excuse the dark pictures to follow…
Josh got their special pork and shrimp dumplings to start:
He said they were good, but nothing out of the ordinary.
For dinner, he got their cappellini and meatballs. This blew him away! He said the meatballs were amazing and the sauce was some of the best he has ever had:
Crave makes tasty seasonal salads. I got the winter salad: “Chef’s own house made power greens – Baby tatsoi, bright lights swiss chard, and purple kale - served with honey Champagne vinaigrette, toasted pumpkin seeds, roasted beets and sweet potato croutons, topped with St. Andre Cheese.” The croutons were ridiculous good. A fantastic combination:

I’ve mentioned before that I went to school for engineering. Recently, my blog friend Meg sent me this awesome video. I love the concept and already placed an order for Kay:
