Me and baby B took to the kitchen last week to make our own granola! I’ve made granola before, but this was a no-extra-sugar variety. We added some cinnamon, a little honey, pecans, and dried cranberries. Pour some over plain, healthy yogurt, and we got ourselves a good breakfast! (Of course, B only enjoys watching us eat it, but loves helping in the kitchen.)
We had breakfast for dinner last week, except instead of like an omelet, we had cinnamon rolls. Plus bacon and hash browns because we aren’t monsters. These ones turned out especially spirally, and we loved each and every one of them.
Lately, our weekend tradition includes going to the gym for a little bit, and then having breakfast together- in our workout clothes like typical Austin people, except we actually just came from the gym. This weekend, there weren’t any parking spots near the bagel place, so we decided to make some breakfast at home instead. We went with our specialty- biscuits. I got a super cool hexagon shaped cutter for Christmas that I was excited to try, and I love the cute little biscuits it made!
The majority of the weekend was spent finishing a large order, but we still managed to have one of those simple, wonderful weekends. It was rainy, grey, and almost freezing- so perfect movie watching weather. Not too many pictures, but lots of time together. One of my favorite parts of the weekend was our gym and bagel date.
I’ve been wanting to try a cloche bread baker, and lucky me, I happened to get one for Christmas! I tried it out on New Years Eve, and it tasted great, except I didn’t oil and cornmeal the bottom enough. So the crusty bottom stuck to the baker. Never ones to be defeated by kitchen gadgets, we decided to make french toast out of hacked up bread, as the saying goes.
