Hey, it’s Friday! I always get excited for Fridays. It’s one of the best days of the week after all!
Aren’t they cute? I filled half with peanut butter frosting and half with chocolate ganache.
Did you have a good week? Mine was just okay, but I am very proud of one thing I accomplished. After pinning countless macaron recipes, I finally broke down and made a batch. They definitely didn’t turn out perfect, but considering it was my first time, I’m pretty darn happy with the result. They had feet and everything!
I used Martha’s French Macaron recipe, and I won’t lie, they were somewhat labor intensive (not too bad though). Next time, I plan to double the recipe and make them a little larger. Mine were positively petite!
Anyway, here are a few links that garnered my attention this week:
I updated my DIY chalkboard with a holiday message (my only decorating so far).
I tried a few new recipes this week, including, Spicy Asian Spaghetti Squash (totally delish, but I’d add more spinach) and a somewhat-edited version of South Indian Spicy Lentil Stew (amazing). Consider them all tried and true!
Have you seen When Harry Met Sally in real life? I laughed – a lot.
