I could have stayed in bed all day and read but Mr. HB was busy downstairs putting the 3rd coat of Simply White Benjamin Moore paint on the walls.
One cannot let the team down and laze about all day.
I feel the need to fuel the man I love and so I got busy.
"Nothin says lovin like somethin from the oven!"
Do you remember that ad from Pillsbury?
Amazing ad men/women and their slogans infiltrated our homes via the TV.
I am sure that I am not alone in remembering their songs and catchy lines.
I found a site that has a list of them...in case you've forgotten.
Dressed in my black Yoga pants, a casual tank and a warm LULU hoodie ~ my OOTD.
Oh and I had an apron over top as I messed about in the kitchen.
Messy is my habit when cooking or baking,
many garments have been mortally wounded when I forget to get my uniform on!
There is a "party of two" in The Humble Bungalow.
Ina likes to cook for her husband and she makes him some wonderful meals.
I have tried and really enjoy her chicken pot pie, it's comforting on a stormy night.
She has a tasty rustic Apple Crostata dessert that I have always meant to bake
but never quite got around to it until today.
It's a snap to make using the food processor.
the pastry recipe makes enough for two tortes
one gets put in a plastic bag and frozen for future use
a couple of large apples sliced
some grated orange rind
are piled atop an 11 inch pastry round leaving 1 and 1/2 inch border
which is then folded up over top of the apples
a crumbly topping
consisting of cinnamon allspice flour sugar and butter
goes on top
baked on parchment paper
at 450 for 20 minutes until golden
I think I'll serve it with a dollop of coconut Greek yogurt.
You can find the recipe here.
On the menu for tonight is honey glazed chicken
served over rice
with wilted spinach and stir fried red peppers.
Mr. HB has a roaring fire going in the fireplace
we are both relaxing in the living room
he reading his current novel on his IPAD
and I'm blogging on my laptop.
If only I had some Harvey's Bristol Cream...
