Food Friday

No crafting, lots of eating.

"Lighter" Chicken Pot Pie from Martha's Everyday Food magazine. Tip: four carrots are WAY too many.

Lemon Loaf. Looks good. In reality a little on the dry side, but great toasted and smeared with butter. Very healthy, I know.

Mint Julep. Now who couldn't do with one of those every so often?

And a little something I grew up with. You have to really hunt around for a specialty import store to find these. Thanks honey!

Pin It!

Mmm, your pot pie looks delicious! I need to make one of these soon, I can't remember the last time I made one.

Yum! I make my pot pie with philo as well. I am now in the mood to put down my needle down and head to the kitchen :0)

What a wonderful menu offering--it all looks delicious and is inspiring my own menu planning. The biscuits you showed are new to me but I can always use my grandmother's recipe. Thank you for sharing all this!

Isn't butter the reason for eating the bread???! :)

Anina, we eat rusks too, but the round ones with butter and sugar on them! Yum, yum. My heritage is dutch though, not afrikaans. Your chicken pot pie looks so yummy!

We used to have rusks as little kids, they were great for teething tots, and because I was the eldest I got to enjoy them 5 times more than my siblings! They don't make them like they used to now, as we found to our dismay when my sister had her baby - they're not nearly as sweet and delicious anymore. But, oh, I can STILL taste and smell them. Thanks for evoking a wonderful memory. Cheers, Diane

Wow... that all looks so tasty! I'm going to have to go to bed so I don't head to the fridge. Are the rusks like biscotti??
