Weekend

To go along with Kim's Hamentashen Tutorial, http://www.slowtrav.com/blog/kim/archives/003721.html#more here's a photo of some of my hamentashen this year. I experimented with a chocolate dough, which while delicious, needs some extra moisture to make shaping easier. Next year. My favorite filling remains apricot, which I make by simmering dried apricots with orange juice and Amaretto, then pureeing.

It was really chilly yesterday, with highs in the upper 30's. I made homemade mac and cheese, which I sneak a lot of vegetables into. Ziti, blanched broccoli, spinach, peas, a zippy cheddar, and a light bechaemel to bind everything.

I finished up the Powerpoint slideshow for a presentation this week. 121 slides. Is it too early for a celebratory scotch?

And look what popped up this morning! Chag Aviv!

Those hamentashen look yummy! As does the mac and cheese. And I just love purple flowers of any kind. Those are beautiful. Do they last long? What a nice surprise for to celebrate the beginning of spring.

Kim:

Okay - so when you've perfected the chocolate dough, send it to me. :)

Beautiful photo of those crocus!

Everything looks really yummy. It is cold here this weekend and warm baked pasta sounds perfect.
