Sorry to be gone so long, but I’ve been pretty busy!
It was my cat Jake’s birthday, and I made some great cupcakes to celebrate.
Another big project was my model of the ocean floor for science class. I made it out of cake and sprinkled the whole thing with graham cracker crumbs to mimic sand. It looked great and I got a 100 on it! Thanks, Ms. Lindsay!!
I also helped my mother with a dinner party, and we made salmon en croute, which had puff pastry and Boursin cheese. It was delicious and so easy! Just spread a salmon filet with the creamy boursin cheese, sprinkle on some fresh spinach leaves, and wrap the whole thing up in a sheet of puff pastry dough. (We used Peppridge Farm.) I cut some hearts out of the extra dough and decorated the top. (A fish would have been cute, but we didn’t have a fish-shaped cookie cutter.) Brush the top lightly with beaten egg and bake until the dough is golden. (It took about 20 minutes–long enough for the fish to cook nicely.)
Beginning on Monday, it’s going to be Eve in the Kitchen’s Week of Pie! A different pie recipe every day and just MAYBE, I’ll have another fun contest, so stay tuned!
