I mowed the lawn! After going through my entire life without ever mowing a lawn, I finally did it. This may not seem like a big deal to you, but I was dreading doing it. Now that I’ve done it, I have no idea why I was so worried about it. Once I figured out how to start the lawn mower, I was good to go. Although my technique might not be perfect and it’s not the best job, I DID IT.
This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie—Flaky Apple Turnovers, which I made with frozen mixed berries–are like my lawn mowing-skills. Although my technique isn’t perfect and they aren’t the best looking turnovers, I got the job done. Instead of apples I used frozen mixed berries I had on hand. Instead of cinnamon I used Chinese 5-spice (I was going to substitute cardamon, but I didn’t have any.) I also added candied ginger bits.
Thank you to Julie of Someone’s in the Kitchen, the wonderful host for this week’s pick. The turnovers were FLAKY and delicious. If you would like the recipe, please visit her blog or buy the book.
