monday cooking

While waiting for my books for class to return from the coffee shop, I have been cooking. 
Emma has them : The Scarlett Letter and Caring for Words. Now she is home and the books are back. I need to get ready  for class tomorrow  but here is what I cooked this morning. Raining so the coffee shop was full. A local coffee shop not the one who has pumpkin lattes. Emma loves their Chai latte.

Quiona Apple cake : served to myself with homemade whipped cream and a cup of cream 
earl grey tea

Form the dough into 12 balls on a parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten them a little bit.  Bake at 350 degrees for 14 to 16 minutes.

THEN made homemade chicken broth and Pumpkin Black Bean Soup for lunch. .
Good eatings here today on a rainy Monday.

Oh my. The Macrina book looks wonderful. Not at the libraries here, though. Might have to plum for it.

And the winter cookbook. I must have that one as well. Very Susan Branch-ish.

You're sweet. Always bring a smile to my face, dear one.
