Chocolate Truffle Tart.
Need I say more? I think not. Well, maybe just a bit more. I mastered the crust, finally. Yes...the crust tasted buttery with a slightly flaky texture. It wasn't too dry or too moist, but absolutely perfect. I even went so far as to embellish the top with some white chocolate hearts I created on the back of a cookie sheet covered with wax paper. This recipe makes a thiner tart but oh so rich. Worth the effort, definitely!
Sunday, my roasted garlic and cheese bread failed to rise due to overkneading, but yesterday my potato bread wouldn't cease from rising. The loaves cascaded down the sides of the pans. I would laugh if they didn't taste so delicious. James begged for more as potato bread is his utmost favorite. While the above loaf rose and rose and rose, I worked on the last two inches of square number 17.
And then I started square number 18 which I completed last night. A square in one day! This has got to be a record for me. Either the squares are getting easier or I am getting faster at knitting. No, but really. This square was super duper easy.
Chloe asked to be in the picture so it would look like she made the square. I obliged, hoping you all could figure out the truth for yourselves.
When the potato bread vacated the oven we dove right in. Who can wait when warm bread is sitting in front of them? Ohhh...the warm, gooey deliciousness slathered in melting butter. Can you just smell that aroma?
And something tells me, the sampler afghan may just see itself finished this weekend. What, with only two squares left to knit. Yippee! Woo Hoo. Okay. So, I need to buy another skein of simply soft to finish the blue squares. What color should I use to sew the squares together? Blue or tan?
