Cherry season is happening. When it does, we drop everything and go pick them. We picked about 15 pounds yesterday and hopefully will get more as more fruit matures.
Our hens have been laying well lately and I thought chocolate mousse would be just the ticket to use up some eggs. And it was. And was much easier than I thought it would be — melted some dark chocolate, whisked in egg yolks and a little vanilla and salt, then folded in the whipped egg whites. Firmed up nicely in the fridge.
Eggs were also used in some fresh pasta lately. I started with sauteeing some onions, garlic, garlic scapes. Then added a bunch of spinach from the garden and some diced tomatoes I had in the fridge. Then, some cream cheese. (The heck with making a roux!). Loosened it up with some pasta water and added my noodles. Easy and delish.
