To start, I tried Amy/Sukie's Curry in a Hurry, which was so delicious, but I thank my lucky stars I only had 3 Tb. Thai Kitchen Green Curry Paste in my fridge. Amy uses 4(!), but 3 was plenty hot for us. As advertised, this was a great meal to fix on a work night - quick and easy, yet mighty tasty.
And then, needing a change-up for breakfast, I baked Katie/There and Back's recipe for granola. I think it's general knowledge that if a working pastry chef posts a recipe, you'd best try it. And I have been celebrating breakfast ever since. I am particularly enjoying it either with a bit o'milk and fresh berries, or topped on yogurt. yum.
We celebrated staff birthdays last week, and the request I covered was that of cake balls. These are send-you-over-the-moon delightful, and deemed the absolute favorite of several in our circle of family and friends. And for good reason.
Then, wouldn't you know it, there was a potluck to go to, and that called for my #1 potluck dish - a dessert of course - Chocolate Toffee Crunch Poke Cake, or commonly known in these parts as "poke cake". It's also dubbed our "stand at the fridge and eat" favorite, for no better reason than we do!

Now that I've bombarded you with all of the above, how about a quick peek back at my Sunday afternoon? I went over to daughter dear's to help her make mini pies to take to work. She was celebrating National Pie Day(!) just a tad early. It was really quick and easy with this handy mold . . .
So, yeah, there was plenty of time in this kitchen this week. Hoping you have some yummyness to share, or a table project even? Go ahead and link up here.
