a few favorite things from the past few days.
standing on my tiptoes to smell a magnolia blossom.
teaching our brunch class, noshing and chatting with five very lovely ladies.
the warm sunny day that forced out blossoms and buds, followed a day later by a snow covered morning that was equally beautiful, but less welcome.
celebrating my sissy's birthday, sushi with the girls.
seeing the way Jane looks at her daddy. she is infatuated, and I don't blame her.
spending every evening with husband, the times I don't worry about grad school acceptance emails.
being uplifted and edified by inspired words and feelings as we listened to general conference.
I love conference weekend.
and a few things I'm looking forward to this week.
finishing up our "chandelier" - done!
visiting the Carl Bloch exhibit at the Museum of Art.
book group, my house this week.
watching Tangled a few hundred more times.
meeting with Melissa to make some big and exciting plans.
yum cha with the family to celebrate past birthdays.
making a couple more loaves of this bread, and sipping some raspberry steamed milk, there's a big storm heading this way.
check out Susan's recap of our brunch class here, and Jane's recap here.
And a question for you locals, if we were to repeat the brunch class say... May 7th, would you come?
raspberry steamed milk for one
1 Tablespoon honey, more to taste
1 cup whole milk or almond/coconut milk
2 - 4 Tablespoons raspberries, packed
a drop or two of vanilla extract
Spoon honey into bottom of a mug or cup, set aside.
In a blender, blend the honey, raspberries and milk until smooth. Pour the mixture through a sieve into a saucepan, to remove the seeds. Add the vanilla and bring milk to a low boil.
Transfer the hot milk to a blender. Put lid on blender, and place a kitchen towel over the lid to prevent hot liquid from splashing. Blend on high speed until frothy, about a minute. Pour into glass. enjoy.
- Multiply the ingredient measurements according to number of desired servings.
- You can seep a cinnamon stick with the milk as well, to add spice.
- Because the raspberry juice is acidic, it may curdle the milk a little but it does not mean the milk is inedible, blending it makes it smooth again.
