in the kitchen

I liked last year’s kitchen posts that Heather inspired us to do.  It was fun to see and try to keep track all the foodly things that were happening.

Here are a few of the foods we’ve eaten lately.

An Apple German pancake of sorts.  I really like it, and it’s the best to eat it with our apples from the backyard.

The other day I made a Blackberry Blueberry Galette.  I made the dough from Amy‘s recipe, from her cheat sheet.  (Thank you Amy!) The filling I made by looking at some recipes from this book. I decided to mix wild blackberries we had picked while camping few days before and some blueberries to make about 2-3 cups (didn’t measure).  Added about 1 1/2 tablespoon of flour, about 1/4 cup of sugar, about 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.  I put it over parchment paper because I knew it was going to ooze juice.  (Good idea.)

I put this filling in the middle of the rolled out dough and then turned the dough on the edges to cover it, but leaving it open in the middle.  Then, I brushed milk and put a little bit of butter in the middle, as Amy suggested. So good it was gone very quickly.

I know we’ve eaten more than these two things. There has been lots of popcorn too, lots of it.  Some summer vegetable rolls, some grilling, pasta with the kale pesto, and more. But all and all, pretty simple meals though.

And yes, some freezing of elderberries, to use in the winter months.  Some of these from some friends’ backyard, some from down by the river.

This drink though…. oh, my new favorite, even though it doesn’t show what it is.  A simple syrup of rhubarb and basil with sparkling water, ice and a slice of lemon.  Oh yes! So good for hot days!
