Today is our 4th anniversary!
We didn’t have any big plans for this year – Stuart is going off on a 30 hour adventure race tomorrow and a trip anywhere was going to be out of the question anyway being one month from my due date. We thought about taking the day off from work and going to the beach, but that idea became vetoed when I was placed on bed rest a month ago. (Turns out today’s weather forecast would’ve kept us inside regardless!) And I’m not making anything fancy from the couch.
So for this honorary blog post, I’m going to share with you a kitchen adventure we took for our 2nd anniversary. Making souffles!
I picked out a savory side dish to go with our salmon and he picked out dessert. And funnily enough, we ended up making each others dish. We didn’t plan it that way, but that’s just how the kitchen tango worked itself out.
My potato souffles were made in ramekins instead of the potato skins. If I remember correctly we struggled at removing the potato from the skin.
For dessert Stuart picked Orange Souffles that were made in the orange rinds! We didn’t puncture the rind on this recipe, and even had extra filling to do two ramekins in addition to the 6 oranges. We had a couple of blow outs but managed to save 3 beautifully souffleed desserts.
