Tomorrow I am going to a barbecue with the choral group I perform with. It's out in the boonies of NJ. Should be fun. I rarely see these people over the summer so it'll be nice.
I made some sweet and not so sweet treats to bring with me.
I started with a box.
And pretty much followed the package directions, but I tweaked it a little. I cleaned out my freezer of leftover chips and such. There are mini semi-sweet morsels and some Ghirardelli 70% cocoa chips - maybe a fourth of a cup total. Also added a smidgen of Midnight Moo chocolate syrup to the mix.
Then I made a ganache. One word...YUM.
I used this (chopped finely):
I simmered the cream then took it off the heat and whisked in the chocolate.
Then poured it over the cooled brownies.
Then sprinkled these on top:
The finished product:
Then I made my Lemon Chive Potato Salad.
Except I used scallions.
And baking potatoes instead of red ones which I wound up peeling. I didn't feel like scrubbing them.
All together now:
Dinner tonight was simple. I wasn't feeling well earlier so I didn't want anything too rich or too heavy. I made myself a cheddar and hummus sandwich.
Aaand I ate the other half of last night's baked potato cold from the fridge.
I apparently have no shame.
Happy Friday to all, and to all a goodnight!
