This week will be an exciting one, here in our tiny apartment kitchen :)
It's our 2 year anniversary!!! And, as part of our special day, I'm going to try to recreate our wedding dinner. I picked up on this fun idea from FishMama, over at Life as Mom, who hosts Ultimate Recipe Swap each Thursday, and I'm really excited to do so!
For our special day, we'll be cooking up.... homemade pasta noodles, alfredo sauce, grilled chicken, broccoli and garlic bread (or bread sticks)! Then, to top off the meal, we'll be remaking (okay, not this pretty)
our wedding cake! We had a wonderful friend make our cake (which was awesome because I knew it was nut-free and I could enjoy it without worry), and she was so kind as to share her frosting recipe with us, so we can make a small cake to enjoy together! I make no promises that my cake will even closely resemble hers -- in fact, I'm not going to try -- but it will be tasty.
For the rest of the week, we're cooking up new recipes, especially those with blueberries and zucchini because these are in-season for us right now:
Berry-Filled Whole Wheat Crepes
Whole wheat blueberry pancakes
Crockpot Apple Bacon Pork Chops (with sauteed zucchini and mushrooms)
Lemon Blueberry Scones
Chocolate Whole Wheat Zucchini Muffins
Pepperoni and Mozzarella Panini* (I'm looking for a good bread to make this Panini on... any recommendations?)
Carrot and Zucchini Creamy Hotdish
Blueberry Rhubarb Crisp
Enjoy your week in the kitchen!
