Thanks Lord, from the bottom of my heart.
Married means I moved. Said my goodbyes, & flew out the day after the wedding. Honeymoon in Maui is over (incredible, as Maui inevitably is), and we have been home about four days. Home in a new country, new climate, new town, where I am still finding my bearings. I'm loving every minute of it, it just takes adjusting, as all changes and new chapters do. Matt & I found an apartment back in July, & now that I have moved in, we get to do all the fun things, like decorating, figuring out what goes in what drawer, and so forth. Y'all are totally going to get before and after photos when that is all fin . . .
All this to say, I haven't been baking as much as usual (I know, no excuses!). Well, I have been baking some . . .
We made homemade pizza with a crazy delicious crust, garlic, onions, apples, & bacon . . .
We made baked mac and cheese with noodles we saved form Kraft dinner, made our own cheese sauce (roux + milk+aged cheddar), and toasted some gnarly delicious breadcrumbs for the topping . . .
We made haphazard chili for home group a few nights ago and slow cooked it to perfection with the few cans of things in our cupboards and lots of extra love . . .
I didn't photograph any of these adventures. I'm sorry. Kinda.
But there are other adventures, thrown together meals that I can share . . .
Dark chocolate + cinnamon +hint of ginger + cream makes the delicate ganache inside these truffles, some which are covered in tempered chocolate & slightly dusted with cinnamon & pecans, some rolled in crushed pecans. Both were devoured at a similarly rapid rate.
Tomorrow I, em, WE (still getting used to this married lingo ;) have a second reception for our family and friends here in Squamish. Here are a few moments from the wedding . . .
