Monday Bites…

May 7, 2012

Thoughts, inquiries, and photos from The Bite-Sized Baker… This week.

1. I’ve decided to make “Monday Bites” a weekly thing… because Mondays bite. Yes, I did think I was very creative for that, thank you very much. (They don’t like Monday mornings either)

2. I got prematurely excited for the high temperatures and warm weather and unpacked my summer clothes… Later that day there were severe weather warning alerts for flash flooding. Cool, Chicago.

3.  Macawoooons. I’ve never tried a macaron before because they’ve never seemed very appealing to me. I’ve always thought the cookie would be dry and hard, but oh, my goodness, was I wrong. Soft, chewy, and delicious little bites of joy! I know what I’ll be making next.

4. This was the best Eggs Benedict I have ever had. Granted, I’ve only had one other but it was still the bomb. I never order Eggs Benedict because I have always told myself I don’t like hollandaise sauce— I always associate it with mayonnaise. News flash, it’s not.

5. I am saddened to say that I did not consume ONE margarita or tortilla chip over Cinco de Mayo weekend. Instead Tony and I dined at the famous steakhouse, Chicago Cut. We feasted on the tuna tartare, beef sliders, lobster bisque, mac and cheese, grilled asparagus, sauteed spinach, mashed potatoes, and filet mignon… Unfortunately, my sneaky snapshots of the food didn’t do it justice so I took a picture of our leftovers… Oooh, ahhh.

6. Tony’s graduation present!

Just kidding… After dinner we went to some reception for the National Restaurant Association at some car dealership… Cars aren’t really my thing and neither is posing in front of them, but when in Rome!

7. My brother, Travis, doing abs with my nephew, Emmett. I laughed at this for a solid five minutes. Hopefully this puts a smile on your face… otherwise you’re just a creep looking at a man you don’t know holding a baby while doing abs. Creep.

8. Chandler. Such a natural in front of the camera, even as a pup! But seriously, is he not the most photogenic dog you’ve ever seen? Be honest.

Happy May 7th, everybody!!!

    The eggs benedict look fabulous. Can’t wait to try my hand at replicating them this Sunday for our Mother’s Day brunch.
