I’m so excited to have the first few days of this week to chill. And by “chill,” I mean emotionally recover. And by “emotionally recover,” I may or may not mean cook and bake as much as I can from the above books, walk much, yoga a little, and sleep in or nap whenever possible. Oh, sewing is also a priority. Chill Priorities are apparently the best lineup in town … I should transition between jobs more often …
I made some sugared pecans, a family fall favorite, last night:
Oven: 250F. Whisk 1 egg white with 1 T water until frothy. Add 1 t cinnamon, 1 t salt, 4-5 c pecans, 1 c sugar, and fold all together. Melt 3 T butter on baking sheet in preheated oven. Pour nuts onto melted butter, spreading into an even layer. Stir nuts every 15 minutes until done (45 minutes total). Let cool. Toss a couple times while cooling to prevent clumping.
Do it. They were heavenly with my spiked apple cider (simmered apple cider with mulling spices for awhile, added an inordinate amount of rum, sipped until gone).
