Here’s what’s on my plate for this week. Things started to feel normal this week. The longer I think about that, the more it freaks me out. Staying inside and not seeing anyone for extended periods of time is normal. And it makes me sad.
Today is Easter, which I’m kind of been dreading. While Thanksgiving and Christmas are holidays usually spent with family, Easter is the holiday I typically celebrate with friends in Brooklyn. The fact that I can’t see them today has been crushing my heart into a million pieces all week. And no matter how much I try throwing myself into working on this blog as a distraction, the pain never leaves. So while today is a day of celebration, I’ve also accepted that it’s going to be a day of sadness. But that won’t stop me from wearing a cute dress.
Even though my week was pretty boring—and sad—there are still a few highlights to share.
I made this single molten lava cake from Joy the Baker this week, but I didn’t have chocolate chips so I used two Reese’s peanut butter cups. The bourbon in the recipe is a must. Did it spark me developing a mug cake recipe of my own? Hmm, you’ll have to wait and see.
Speaking of bourbon, we supported one of our local businesses by buying one of their delicious bourbons—a Knob Creek. They sold off their whiskey collection to support their employees.
I’ve been obsessed with making brunch lately, so please forgive me if all you’re seeing on this blog are brunch foods. It’s my idea of comfort food right now. Lemon blueberry ricotta pancakes are on deck.
I epically failed making sourdough this week, which made me feel incredibly embarrassed given that my sourdough loaves two weeks ago were so beautiful. But on the bright side, we’re about to have lots of bread pudding.
Until next week, my loves.
