Free Friday Week 5/15-5/21 in Review

Happy Friday! Here's a recap of our week last week.
 So, last week was Starbucks Happy Hour. We didn't go often, actually we only went twice in the almost three weeks that they held the special. Still it was fun. Except that I ordered Decaf, and I'm pretty sure I was given fully caffeinated coffee. I'm shaking thinking about it!

2016 School Lunches 100-114

YAY!! More lunches! I'm just as shocked as you all, but here they are. It's just that time of year where I get so very ready for school to be out and things to be over. I'm ready for packing 4 lunches a day and heading out to the park for a picnic, for building forts, reading books all day, and a more relaxed pace. Soon, sooooon.

Matzo Ball Soup

Matzo Ball soup, or as my friend calls it "Jewish Penicillin"

Matzo Ball soup. Comfort in a bowl. I don't know what it is but, this soup has been on my top three as far as comfort foods. Always. It's so good. Especially if I'm sick. Chicken noodle soup? Sure, if it's handy. Matzo Ball soup. All day. Every day, please.

Forget any other recipe for Matzo Balls you've seen on this blog. Because this one is perfect. It produces light, fluffy matzo balls that still have substance to them. So they are still "sinkers" and not falling apart. The texture throughout is tender. Perfection. I honestly don't know if the texture could be anymore perfect. The flavor, well, you're using Schmaltz. Fat is good flavor.

Free Friday Week 5/8-5/14 in Review

Welcome to another Free Friday. Here are some highlights from last week that I posted on Instagram! If you're on Instagram, come say "hi" I'd love to see your feed! Don't forget to check out some of the accounts I posted below!
The girls reading before bedtime, I love that they love to read, it drives me crazy that they get so sucked in that it's hard to get their attention. I suspect there could be worse problems.

Garlic Chile Edamame

Garlic Chile Edamame, perfect for an appetizer or snack.
The girls and I first had these at a sushi bar in Houston. So good, usually when I'm eating sushi I might eat a few salted edamame and call it good, because let's face it I'm there for sushi. But these garlicky, spicy, sweet, salty Garlic Chile Edamame were so yummy I think we even ordered seconds. I'm sure of it actually.
These are the perfect appetizer, but they are also great for after school snacks and movie nights. The ingredients are simple and things I always have on hand. I keep a peeled piece of ginger in my freezer. Whenever I need grated ginger I just pull it out and grate it with my microplane while frozen. Works like a charm!
