I hope everyone had a great one!!!!
We sure did…with food, food and more food.
The weekend we got home from Barbados one of my neighbors was having a moving sale. I picked up a Sunbeam Bread Machine for $5!! Woohoo!! I’ve wanted one for so long but just didn’t want to put out the money. I kept thinking I could/should be spending it on yarn or fabric or books or something else. But how can I go wrong for $5?
The best $5 I’ve ever spent…I feel like I should go back to her house and give her more money. I love my new bread machine. It didn’t come with a manual so after some searching on-line I found one, then read some reviews. It was unanimous. It’s a great, machine but the recipes in the manual are all wrong. So I ran to Barnes and Noble, picked up this book and voila! My first loaf!! Complete success!
Now I have all this yummy bread and tons of basil (from my garden)…PESTO!!!!
I used a combination of about 3 recipes and came up with this….SO YUM…
Now we can’t have all this food, (didn’t bother with the barbecue pics…) without dessert.
Stone-Fruit Trifle with Lemon Mousse … It’s a Martha Stewart recipe from July/August 2010. It’s a bit time-consuming but soooooo worth it!!!
You have to have a glass bowl to really show this dessert off. It’s as pretty as it is delicious.
So what did you eat this weekend?
