The past few days have been all about food. I have gone to the grocery store about five times or more. I’ve been in the kitchen a LOT.

Im already enjoying it. -Not so much the various trips to the store part.. But the ‘spending time in the kitchen’ part-

we have a new favorite at the H household.

I dont know what to call it. But its a mix of peanut, almonds and bitter chocolate.

My siblings and mom cant stop eating it.

I had it for breakfast today with some almond milk. It tastes like musli

Pictures comming up.

I also read the book of Ruth (im reading it everyday for the next 21 days) Im sure i will have it memorized by march the 7th.

And my first thought about this book is-

What’s up with Ruth going to Boaz’s tent in the middle of the night and sleeping at his feet?
What’s up with THAT  being honorable?
Oh well…

These were a hit in my household! I found this random recipe online.  Enjoy!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry (one 17.3-ounce package), thawed, each sheet cut into 12 squares
  • 1 large egg beaten to blend with 1 water (for glaze)
  • 4 3.5-ounce bars imported bittersweet or milk chocolate, each cut into six 2×3/4-inch pieces
  • Sugar

PREPARATION

Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Brush top of each puff pastry square with egg glaze. Place 1 chocolate piece on edge of 1 pastry square. Roll up dough tightly, enclosing chocolate. Repeat with remaining pastry and chocolate. Place pastry rolls on baking sheet, seam side down. (Can be made 1 day ahead. Cover pastries with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Cover and refrigerate remaining egg glaze.)

Preheat oven to 400°F. Brush tops of pastry rolls with remaining egg glaze. Sprinkle lightly with sugar. Bake until pastries are golden brown, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
