la cocina

thank you for all the gardening tips. really looking forward to giving it a go this year, and having more fresh herbs in the kitchen. yum. i spent all afternoon cooking away. i had two recipes to test for a friend, so i thought i would make an occasion of it. a soup and a banana bread recipe. since david is of the opinion that soup is not a meal, i made a quiche as well. my kids eat quiche, do yours? they love eggs, and cheese. the spinach throws them off sometimes, but they didnt mind last night. i have decided that i really like cooking with leeks. they are so pretty when you slice them, and i liked to stir the pot looking at all those o's and zeros floating around. i would imagine the same goes for calamari.

i plan on running some freezer paper through the printer tonight. keeping the fingers crossed on that one, and have plenty of volunteer cutters. saturday should be the stenciling day. after KU plays UCLA of course. we have the madness at our house. funny huh? its true. so, good weekend to you all. wishing spring for those still stuck in the cold!
