The next part of the cooking adventure involved boiling up potatoes for crash-baked-potatoes. Then I made a batch of mint chocolate chip truffles. (I also had a super-flop with a batch of flourless chocolate cookies - but I won't dwell on the failures since the successes of today were overwhelmingly amazing!)
Freddie, Mr. Freddie & Phil arrived right as the little white fishies came out of the oven. The potatoes were crispy and the salad was made. It was dinnertime!
After dinner Sara & Renat came up the mountain. I got to feed them a nutritious and filling carrot-soup & bread dinner. Oh yes, and everybody got to enjoy the desserts.Freddie left with a microwave and a care-package of cinnamon buns, bread (tomato-basil & honey-whole-wheat) and lettuce. Sara & Renat left to get back to studying. Phil, Z and I all made ourselves comfortable on the couch in the office and as soon as I stop blogging maybe we'll watch an episode of something-or-other and then we'll get some sleep.
Tomorrow Phil will be hanging around for the day - so we're going to do some gluten-free baking experimentations and of course she's going to study lots and lots - cause the quiet of the middle-of-nowhere makes it the ideal place to study.
