The other dish, that got uploaded in the wrong sequence, is a really yummy dish from the "Jerusalem" cookbook. It has a million spices and herbs in it. Well, not a million......but a lot! It has a spice called "baharat." The book gives instructions on making your own if you can't find it. I know I could find it locally, but didn't have time, so I made up a batch using the recipe in the book. The fava beans were brought over by Cyrous' dad from his garden. If you own this cookbook, make this recipe! The only mistake I made was not to prep all the herbs before I embarked on making this on a Monday at 6:00pm. I thought it was a simple meatball recipe, but there were more steps than I thought, and it lead me to be a bit scattered in the kitchen. Anyway......make this it's really good!
After working hard on the last pieced in my last post, I decided to whip up something easy, classic and summery for the shop. Here is the result! It's a sweet little romper made out of Liberty of London art fabric, and the sweetest flower snapped buttons. The print is so darn cute, and came in many color ways but by the time I went to buy some, this primary color way was the only one I could get my hands on, and the name of it is "Theo." The romper is a size 3/6 mo. and it is listed in the shop. The link is on the side bar. Great for summer, as the fabric is whisper thin. I'm going to make some bloomers and tops next, with fun summer colors.
These past couple of days we have had a blast of heat and now we are due for a whiplash of cooler temps with possible rain on Saturday! Gotta love these transition months. As I type this I have the AC on and just checked the thermometer out back and it reads 100! I'll spare you the rant on how I'm not looking forward to my least favorite season. Only thing about this summer is that at least we have a fun back yard to enjoy and we aren't 1. moving and 2. consumed in planning a wedding! Which might make it a bit more enjoyable. I also really need to have some staple summer dinner recipes, so it won't be such a dreaded task when it is hot.
On a different topic, I'm going to clean up my list of blogs to read that I have on the right side bar, since blog town is becoming more and more of a ghost town I suppose they just shouldn't be up on my list anymore. Seems like everyone has moved on except a few die hards and ones that make serious money from them. So, just in case you use my blog to hop to another from here, you might want to bookmark your favorite ones. Not sure how many people do this, but I thought I'd let you know.
Be back soon!
