when we weren’t dining out at delicious restaurants in the palm springs area, we were whipping up tasty eats and treats back at the house.
friday night’s diner was the first meal we cooked. we were in luck, because eden is a professional chef!
we had dry rubbed pork roasted with onions.
even professional chefs cry when massaging onions.
we also had a blend of sautéed leeks, kabocha and mushrooms served over a bed of crisp romaine.
on saturday morning, deb blended up one of her fabulous smoothies.
this one was a protein frappucino.
she gave me a taste before polishing off the blenderful
eden and i made greek yogurt messes for our breakfast.
i used trader joe’s greek yogurt which i LOVE, but don’t get the luxury of eating when at home. come to utah, trader joe’s!
this had cinnamon, banana, strawberries and trader joe’s fiber cereal with a side of swimming pool.
saturday night ended up being on the lighter side. we were still full from eating at the deli earlier in the day, so we decided just to snack on random things and mess around in the kitchen.
i had a toasted cinnamon raisin bagel thin with maple almond butter and banana.
we also whipped up some carrot cake ice cream..
by the way, it was SO good.
we also made some protein cereal that was more of an experiment and while it tasted fine.. it was nothing to write home about. the best part was that we were making up recipes together.. that was fun!
sunday night was the last supper. we whipped up a simple chicken stir fry.
side note: how had i never tried ak-maks before this trip? i am officially hooked!
i am glad i got my fill of mushrooms, since marshall hates them and i never eat them at home.
behind the scenes..
behind the behind the scenes..
perfect final meal.
that sums up our palm springs cooking shenanigans.. tune in next time for the everything in betweens.
1. if money is not an issue: do you prefer eating in or dining out?
2. what was the last meal you made?
