If you like banana bread, you should totally try smitten kitchen's pear bread. Soooo good.

Today I'm stress baking:

Italian olive oil/herb sourdough bread (Thyme, Basil, Oregano, Tarragon, Rosemary)
Muffins (Can't decide between strawberry, double chocolate chip, or something else, depends what's in the freezer/pantry)

Shrimp stir fried with cabbage, broccoli, red pepper and chestnuts, and soba noodles in an orange-sesame dressing. They worked well together.

This sounds pretty good! What oil do you use for the stir fry?

Whatever vegetable oil I have open. I think this week it's canola.

It was a lovely day and we had a picnic with lots of friends in the park. So yesterday I made lemon bars and today I made a potato salad with asparagus and soft-boiled eggs. Both were big successes!

Mmmm that does sound very good. I love asparagus.

I made a heavenly curry on Friday, but my dirty secret is that it was using a packet of sauce. It had 4 ingredients and took 50 minutes in the pressure cooker (10 of which were trying to reassemble the lid after giving it a thorough cleaning...). I am so glad I found the pressure relulator thingy for my pressure cooker.

Yesterday I made a cheese and herb quickbread and an asian inspired coleslaw* for the bbq (braai) some friends came over for. Also blush sangria to drink and chocolate fondant puddings for dessert but they were a total wash; they were overcooked, "boiled" out over the top of the ramekins, and the chocolate separated a bit so they were sort of egg-coloured at the bottom and overly chocolatey on top. Poop. Still edible but not great and NOT pretty.


*I have no idea what to call it (and don't want to be culturally insensitive). It's shredded cabbage (red and green), chopped spring onion, torn coriander leaves, toasted sesame seeds and toasted almond slivers. The dressing is soy sauce, vinegar, sugar and oil. It's delish though whatever you call it.

Cooked a bunch of Indian food over the weekend. Chickpea curry on Saturday, made with dried chickpeas rather than canned for a change. And last night: temple-style yogurt rice, spicy dry-fried okra, and Chettinadu mutton pepper fry.

Over the weekend I made a mulberry coffee cake with the mulberries from the yard. Unfortunately the tree has never been trimmed or shaped as far as I can tell, so the majority of the berries are more than 30' above the ground where I can't get to them :(
