Favorites of This June

I'm going to adopt a feature I see on some of the other blogs I read and share about some of my favorite food-related memories of this month. A lot has happened and the month is only about half over, but here it is.

1. Making Mel from My Kitchen Cafe's Tuscan Macaroni and Cheese with my boyfriend in his on-campus apartment the night before his college graduation. We had to borrow some of his roommate's utensils, which was a humorous challenge as his roommate was also in the process of packing to move out, but we got it done :)

 The graduation was lovely, too.

2. We also made Michelle from Une-deux senses' Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal the previous weekend. Who knew oatmeal could have so many fantastic possibilites? Michelle did-- she features several kinds of delicious fruity/sweet baked oatmeal, of which this is only one, but quite a good one.

3. Getting three different varieties of cookies from my penpals from afar....

Gingerbread and custard creams from Christian in England...

And home made caramel apple cookies from Ashley in Virginia :)

4. Dinner in Santa Cruz after my sister's graduation at this fun little vegetarian space-themed cafe:

My Huevos y Papas burrito was excellent :)

That's all for now... more to come :)

  1. Hi Jen!

    Sounds like it has been a rather busy June thus far for you, and the people you care about. Thanks for the edible like pictures within your latest post, and safe travels next wishes to you and yours if you manage to catch the wedding bouquet. Have a great week ahead.
