the kids are back to school, after two weeks of winter vacation. we enjoyed lots of snow, skiing and overnight stays at grandparents and aunt T's house... we all relaxed and savored each moment.
but now we are back, the boys enjoyed a good first day, even though elias had a bit a rough start, overall it went well. naomi took a pile of travel photos along to show her kindergartenfriends what we saw and did on our 3month tour across the united states. (joel is still working on the photo books, they will turn out great, but it will take a bit longer as expected for them to be designed...)
non the less i had the urge to bake a special dessert for the kids as a surprise. naomi helped me with the apple cutting, and much more on cleaning all the tools and bowls after our mission was completed and baking in the oven.
and of course a big pitcher of chai latte! what a welcome drink, i'm glad the kids enjoy this so much and don't need to be spoiled with soda!
it was an apple/berry galette, what ever was in the house and seemed like a good fit found it's way into the dessert!
apples, raspberries, figs, brown sugar, creme, sour creme, flour, cinnamon, cardamom, egg i guess that summs it up. and it was yummy, gone within in moments. we got unexpected visitors and they enjoyed it as well.
