Project Number 2: Finish my raised beds. Which I did!!! Check. Here's the finished project.
Ya'll are all superrr impressed right? You will be when I have fresh peppers, tomatoes, and squash! :)
Project Number 3: Thank you notes. These things get so piled up with all of the planning, parties, ect that comes along with a fast-approaching wedding; I had to play catch up today. Here is my note station. Right smack dab in the middle of our home/ breakfast table nook.
Project Number 4: Homemade macarons. Yes. I am attempting the elusive French Macaron. I wanted to order some of these for the wedding dessert table but soon realized they were as much as $4.00 a cookie at some bakeries. I decided, "What the heck! I'll make them myself!". Looked at a recipe, you have to cure egg whites over night. You then have to weigh your ground almonds and the rest of the ingredients. Most baking recipes call for measuring cups not food scales. We will see how these suckers turn out.
Sooo.. Mid blog writing I decided to try them. Here they are.
The weird stuff on the top is graham cracker crumbs. Wanted to add a little pizzazz. They turned out pretty good. I have a troubleshooting website that I have to go over because the "feet" didn't properly develop and the insides were a little hollow. None of this means anything to yall does it? Ok. Done :)
|With the Rasberry filling.|
Josh and Brady both really liked them. They don't have the culinary taste-buds that are required to tell the difference between macarons and oh let's say meringues but we'll say this was a success for my first time!
