When I ask if I can serve myself, he nods assent. I load my plate with eggs, sausages, batter cakes covered in thick orange preserves, slice of pale purple melon. As I gorge myself, I watch the sun rise over the Capitol.

These are a family tradition. We always have scotch-a-roos at holidays and really any family get together. My grandma made them, my mom makes them, I don’t make them very often, but I am sure I will when I have kids.
This was an amazingly yummy meal!! I went over to my friend Brenda’s apartment and she likes squash, so we found a squash recipe to experiment with. The squash recipe will be coming soon, but for now the sides! The refried black beans and the rice.
I went over to my friend Annie’s house the other day and she taught me to make fried rice (Annie from the origami fun a while back, she blogs at handspun rainbows). It was way easier than I expected. I don’t know exactly what I expected, but it was really easy to make.
I love pad thai! It is one of my favorite dishes. This is only the second time I have made it and every time I make it, it is very spicy. Not in an overwhelming way, but in a every bite it gets more intense and by bite 6 your like wow I need some milk.
This was not my idea. A friend of mine was coming over and she had some squash and wanted to make something out of it. I am trying to broaden my horizons. So we looked at recipes and found something that sounded good.
These are the pancakes I ate with the lemon curd. These are amazing! We got the recipe from my friend Beth. The first time I made these my roommate and I renamed them Fluffy Monsters, because they are huge and amazingly fluffy.
