Plot 43

I just got a plot in the building's garden and I'm so excited!

The only things I do not care to grow are flowers. Yes, they're pretty, but it's so much more exciting and gratifying to eat what you've grown yourself.  Must....resist...."fruits of your labor" pun!

What should I grow? Perhaps a root vegetable so I can be surprised when I finally pull them up? It'll be like having a baby...and I'll send out announcements: Baby Carrot - 3 oz, 2 inches. Or maybe some gongura leaves so I can make one of my favorite chutneys, while using its similarities to a certain illegal substance as a fun ice breaker for my fellow gardening biddies. You know how I like to multitask!
Photos from home. Those tomatoes and that pepper were still a little orange and dark green, respectively when I plucked them, but apparently you're supposed to do that and let them finish ripening on your windowsill. Well, I don't know if you have to, but that's what my mom said and look how bright red they got!

Nutella Puff Pastry

You know how all those food blogs have beautifully styled food, pristine dishware, amazing lighting? I would love to have one of those. Instead, I'm Lakshmi and I do things like this.
My friends and I had a potluck not so long ago, and I decided to make these Nutella puff pastries I found on Pinterest. Nutella + marshmallow + puff pastry. How could that not be a hit? They're supposed to look like this:
That would've been really impressive, right?
Here's how mine turned out...

I can't decide which version is cuter.
Happy Friday the 13th!

Russian Doll Measuring Cups

How cute are these?  Pretty darn cute, I'd say. These were the awesome Yankee Swap gifts I stole from my friend (he's a guy, so he probably didn't want them anyway, right?). Both the top and the bottom of each is a measuring cup! I love them so much, I've been measuring my cereal by serving size. Thanks Ana, for the awesome find!
