I don't know. I have some spinach, mushrooms, goat cheese, & pesto in the fridge. Maybe pasta?

For dessert I'm having a peach raspberry cake and a lemon blueberry cornmeal cake. Yum! The recipe places the fruit on top of the cake after 15 minutes of baking, so the fruit doesn't sink, it stays on top. Here's a photo for Aidan's bday party with the cakes. We told him to close his eyes while we lit the candles and he just wouldn't open his eyes when we started singing.

lol, what great pic cora!!!

btw, how about doing a stuffed or rolled chunk or chop of animal flesh, using the shrooms, spinach and goat cheese as the stuffing? and make pesto pasta as the starch.

tonight, i'm gonna try to make a honey/balsamic glazed roasted chicken and root veggies. i'm thinking of modifying it to use the slow cooker so as not to use the oven. i might spatchcock or halve the chicken, sear in olive oil, then add everything to the slow cooker. i don't think it'll have the same effect as dry heat roasting, but it might work anyway.

yum...animal flesh. That's a good idea bucky.
We've got chicken in the freezer. Pork tenderloin too. I wish I had some pears laying around. I've never stuffed a tenderloin before.

cora, one of those cakes looks an awful lot like a Hawaiin pizza. I thought it was one. What kind of cakes were they and out of curiousity, why did the lucky tyke get two?

Cora, you need to feed him better, he is way too small for what the candles on the cakes indicate...

Just kidding, what an adorable photo! He is a lucky lad to have a mum who bakes not one but two lovely mouthwatering cakes for his birthday!!
