Baking & Cooking

I never ate gnocchi before, until two weeks ago, when me and all colleagues that carry out Penfield operations (a sort of operation where patients are woken up while a brain surgeon is performing an operation on the brain to map functions, mostly speak and motoric) went eating out together. Surgeons, anesthesiologists, a neuro psychologist and all other operation room personnel were present. I really like the consistency of the gnocchie and wanted to make it myself. This week I did. There aren't many foods that I really don't like, but peas aren't among my favorites, so I used another recipe for the gnocchi. With sage, because I love sage a lot.

Mint Sugar
The mint sugar was a big hit. I made it for my daughter to sprinkle on their strawberries in their school lunch box.

Roasted Salsa
Also a big hit, especially in combination with a tortilla chips platter.


Sewing Gertie's Dress
I worked a bit ahead on the dress. It was the first time that I did an FBA (full bust adjustment). My muslin had a perfect fit, but after finishing the whole dress, for some reason the bodice didn't fit that good anymore. Made me a bit demoralized after putting all this effort in it. I made a dark blue dress and wanted to make a chocolate brown one, but after this disappointment I don't feel like making another dress anytime soon.
