Some Old Favorites

Posted on

Last night we went bowling with our friends Ashley and Jonathan. I like bowling, but it definitely wouldn’t be Brent’s activity of choice, so we don’t go often. That probably explains why my body rebelled. We had a lot of fun, but I just couldn’t believe how sore I was when I woke up this morning!

Before all that fun last night, I spent some time making a mess in the kitchen yesterday. Nothing new came of it, but I did make some of our favorites. First up was some Artisan Bread – the light whole wheat bread. A very tasty, utilitarian sandwich bread. I do wish it was a higher percentage of whole wheat, but I can’t complain too much. It’s still tasty. 🙂

hpim3162Last night’s dinner was a repeat of Jamie Oliver’s fennel risotto. Also, very tasty. Risotto is pretty time-consuming, but definitely not difficult. I think it’s one of those dishes that people build up to more of hassle than it really is. Risotto — it’s not just for restaurants.

hpim3167That’s all for now. I made a HUGE mess in the kitchen today too, but I’ll update you on some of that tomorrow. Gotta spread out the excitement, you know.

I can’t believe the weekend is already coming to a close. It seems like this one went even quicker than usual!

  1. Hooray for bowling (fun!), bread (yum!), risotto (elegant!), and Jamie Oliver (hot!).

  2. Great looking bread!!

  3. Victoria, I felt the same way about the “light whole wheat” bread, so I did increase the amount of whole-wheat flour — 3 cups AP 3 cups WW — and it works great! Even makes a good pizza crust. 🙂

  4. Oh my gosh, delicious bread!

    And love Jamie Oliver!

  5. Bowling definitely makes me sore as well!! That bread looks incredible!

  6. Love the bowling mention! My arm is still kinda sore 🙂

  7. I think you can substitute some whole wheat flour if you want.

  8. I have substituted some more whole wheat flour. The bread turns out well, but I don’t think it has quite the same crispy crust and airy interior.
