Cooking with Sara.

I've written before about how much fun Sara and I have together in the kitchen. This past weekend, we cooked more than yesterday's post (and my Instagram feed full of blue skies and cocktails :-) might've suggested. But it wasn't until Monday that we cooked together. For brunch, we made a spinach mushroom strata and sangria. It was delicious (especially accompanied by a mini-marathon of the last season of Sex and the City episodes). and you'll have to take my word for it since I forgot to take photos.

So I made up for it with dinner. a very non-traditional 4th of July menu, featuring fresh produce and bread from Sunday's market, leftover burrata from Friday's dinner and a pork loin with garlic, thyme and rosemary (that Sara wanted to learn how to make).

It took a little bit (and we had a few dishes to wash), but it was worth every minute.

Sara also made a rhubarb compote, which she served with a dollop of greek yogurt just before the fireworks started. Perfect ending to a lovely meal.

  2. Mmmm. Yummy. That all looks and sounds delicious!! I love being in the kitchen with my kids, too, whether we're cooking together or for each other.

  3. This looks far better than the traditional hotdogs and hamburgers. It is great to be in the kitchen with our kids (and know that they're not ordering out or starving when we're not there)!

  4. It must be so fun to cook together like that. Sadly, Hannah is missing the cooking gene so we don't do this.

  6. Wow, Mary! That looks really good! I have to say that I went traditional -- burgers on the grill and {gasp} store bought potato and macaroni salads!

  7. That looks like a wonderful dinner! I went to 3 cookouts over the holiday weekend and it was all hot dogs, hamburgers, and a variety of salads.

  9. What fun to have someone to cook with, especially when it is your daughter! And it all sounds and looks so tempting! I cook of course, but my daughter has inherited some kind of super cooking gene, so on the rare occasions we cook together it is usually her teaching me. Still fun. : )

  10. It all looks scrumptious! It is great fun to cook with grownup children, or to have them cook for you!

  11. Looks yummy! Am hoping for some cooking time with Andrew before he heads to Clemson. So much fun to share that interest with others.

  12. How lovely to be cooking and sharing skills with your daughter ... I'd love to be doing that with mine! The last thing my Mum taught me to make the Autumn before she died was damson jam, and I cherish the memory.
