Vacation

My birthday is coming up next week and I always take my vacation during that time so I’ve never worked on my birthday, but this year I’m doing a bit of both. I flew down to Florida and stayed for four days and really wish that it was longer and I’m home for a couple of days then work two and off for the rest of my birthday.

So today as part of my vacation I remade some bread and made some basil salt with all the basil leaves I got off my plant and I watched Hamilton which was really very good, too bad I couldn’t do the actually live production but hey this was just as good.

My bread came out really good this time and it looks great.lrm_20200715_123017

You can find this recipe on my post I Made Bread! 

If you’ve never tried basil salt your going to have to give it a try. All you need is 1/2 cup of kosher salt, 1/2 cup of basil leaves, grind in your chopper and put on a baking sheet and bake at about 250 degrees for 30 minutes and half way through shake it up a bit. After it finishes let cool  and put back into the chopper to grind to a finer consistency. 20200715_113643_hdr

I use this on pretty much everything especially when I make pasta or on my chicken and it makes a great finishing salt.

The best part of my birthday weekend will be that I will have dinner at Gordon Ramsey’s at the casino too bad my favorite chef won’t be there, that would be friggin awesome okay calm down not going to happen. But I will be celebrating with the kids so that will be fun.

Have an awesome day everyone!
