Sunday Morning

Beignets

Weekends around here are less structured. Less hectic. Just... less.

As it should be.

Weekends are meant for slowing down and savoring the moments. A week full of to-do lists, errands, and laundry looms ahead but for now, we just enjoy what the day brings.

This weekend brought big platters of sugar covered beignet, pitchers of fresh juice and cups of steamy hot coffee. (as well as a few extra boys with big appetites!) The beignet recipe comes from this book. (Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francois) I can't begin to tell you how much I'm enjoying this book! It really makes fresh hot bread for breakfast so simple. I had piles of beignet coated in sugar and ready to go in next to no time at all which is exactly how long 5 hungry boys want to wait to eat.

And for the rest of our weekend? Well we'll just have to wait and see what the day brings. Whatever that happens to be, though, I can promise you it will include licking powdered sugar from our fingers!

Yummo!!!
Those look awesome. Another recipe to try.

By the way your cinnamon buns were a huge hit last week...both at home and at the office :-)

Jamie, I'm glad you liked the cinnamon rolls! They are definitely a favorite around here.

Do try the beignet. They are wonderful!
