Dinner 1: Mini Ciabatta with Hummus and Veggies
DocDufresne has been experimenting with different recipes from the Bread Baker's Apprentice. He made some mini ciabatta, which we sliced open and filled with homemade hummus and tahini, tomatoes, and arugula. Oh drippy goodness.
Dinner 2: Southern Style Black Eyed Peas with Kale and Cornbread
I had the foresight to soak some black eyed peas during the day. I based the dish off of this recipe, omitting the liquid smoke* and adding diced vegan hot dog. I also used kale instead of collard greens. The cornbread was loosely based off of a recipe on the corn meal package. I added diced jalapenos to Doc's. Isn't the cornbread cute in the individual ramekins? I love when I can bake in the toaster oven.
*Due to an awful liquid smoke overload experience, DocDufresne is forever turned off from the ingredient.
Lastly, as promised in the title of this post: Dogs!
And Emerson. What a Cutie.
DocDufresne and I volunteered at a Cares4Pets adoption event on Saturday, where I got to play with a bunch of cute pups, including an adorably sweet three-legged puppy, and a much-younger Andy-look-alike. Doc took photos!
