What a month, what a month, what a MONTH. I'm not really sure where time is flying to, but it's been slipping through my fingers with each passing day. On one particular day, I was working my butt off at the office on summer photography, back to school shot list, and production for upcoming windows when I realized it was MARCH. It feels like I've had my head buried in my day work and I am finally catching my breath. Because of my late nights, early mornings, and weekends filled with work- home cooked meals have been all but a dream. Truthfully I have eaten out way more than I would like to admit.
When I finally got a free day, I decided to spend most of it in bed listening to one of my favorite books: Eat, Pray, Love. I have always had the wanderlust bug and Elizabeth Gilbert gets my blood stirring with her stories of life abroad. My friend told me recently, "Loni food is your meditation. You never seem calmer, happier, more focused than when you are buzzing around your kitchen whipping up something good..." and she's totally right. Food is a part of my religion. It's how I show love and how I thank God for the innate gift he gave me. My recipes don't always pan out, but I relish in every moment I spend.
But speaking of recipes and cooking, I have had this recipe stewing for a few weeks. I really love these little plumpkins. They are buttery, cheesy, and full of flavor. Plus, they only take a few minutes to make from start to finish. You get a nice savory note with a touch of sweet if you choose to drizzle a little Thyme Infused Honey over each one- which I strongly recommend YOU DO.
The pastries worked well with my grab and go work filled days especially when I needed a healthier retreat from the sea of takeout menus that were beginning to pile up on my kitchen counter :)
Have a good weekend guys and gals, if I dare to leave my bed for any Easter potluck festivities, I'm sure these babies will be in tow.
