Day 37 – #100HappyDays Challenge
Last night I pulled out a package of croissants from Trader Joe’s to rise over night and then baked them before my son headed out to work. When I was browsing at Trader Joe’s, I chatted with a lady who had 4 boxes in her arms. She raved about them so I figured I’d try them just to see what the fuss was all about.
Run, don’t walk to Trader Joe’s while you can. They are decadent. They bake up light and airy oozing buttery goodness in every delicate layer. The first bite took me back to France. These heavenly croissants that will make even the Parisians fall in love with them.
I’m enjoying my visit here with the guys. Gregg surprised me by bringing home the cake platter I had deliberated over along with a bouquet of flowers. I’m so blessed.
Today’s baking adventure began and ended with a brilliant, festive cranberry quick bread. This decadent loaf is made with cream cheese with a hint of vanilla which softens the tangy cranberries. This will make a perfect Black Friday morning treat for all the hard working staff at Gregg’s work.
By the way, don’t forget to pull your turkey out of the freezer and put in the fridge to defrost if your cooking Thursday.
