I've had a small flurry of cooking/baking lately, which is unusual for me. It feels weird saying that, because I used to bake and cook a lot (in a previous life, I guess). Anyway, I got very brave and tried some chocolate-covered strawberries this afternoon. I'm taking them to our Quilt Guild's show opening at the Arts Center tonight. I haven't tasted one of these finished strawberries, because there are only 23 of them. But I'm sure they taste all right, because I used a couple of strawberries to wipe the last of the chocolate out of the bowl!
My apron did me a little good, not wasn't entirely effective!
Yesterday we were invited to dinner at a good friend's house, and I said I'd bring something. I made this black olive appetizer spread sort of thing. It turned out quite well (see following photo), and the other people at dinner seemed to like it, too. It was easy, which is always a plus. I found the recipe online at andaluss.wordpress.com.
