It's Friday, and Spring is finally here. The snow is almost gone and I haven't worn a coat since Wednesday. The winter boots have been put away and we're drinking our coffee outside.
We went on a quick road trip last weekend, one final hockey tournament and another big win for the boys. Hockey equipment has been washed and put away... for a while anyway. Tryouts for next season start at the end of the month.
I had some success and some failures in the kitchen.
Ham, broccoli, and cheese stuffed buns - amazing. Just like the ones you saw here, with ham instead of chicken. A great way to use leftovers, and oh so good. I'll be sharing this recipe soon.
Granola bars - yuck. Oatmeal apricot muffins - OK, but not great.
Jalapeno cheddar sour cream biscuits - really good! I used this Sour Cream Biscuit recipe and added some chopped pickled jalapeno peppers along with some shredded cheddar. YUM.
Speaking of food, did you know that April is National Grilled Cheese Month? Grilled cheese sandwiches are the go-to I-don't-like-what's-for-dinner alternative in our house, but that humble sandwich has the potential to be so much more than just bread and cheese. Check out my National Grilled Cheese Month Pinterest board for some unbelievable grilled sandwich inspiration:
And check this out...coffee flour! You can read all about it here. I will be keeping an eye open for this!
Also, I am in love with this Arugula Skirt Steak Salad with Caramelized Pears, Pecans, and Gorgonzola from Ashley at Baker by Nature. It's gorgeous, healthy, and easy to put together. I seriously want this for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Easter is next weekend. If you plan to colour Easter Eggs, have a look at this gallery of creative ways to do it:
