This has been a long, long week as Maisie hasn’t been feeling great, I’ve been sick and Eammon was away in Germany on business. Then to finish the week, on Saturday I had to work at Maisie’s gym as there was a meet. So by Saturday afternoon there was no way that I was going to cook dinner. With Maisie’s allergies it’s difficult to just go out to a restaurant so it was nice to find a new pizza place right around the corner from the gym that along with “regular” pizza offers a gluten-free and vegan cheese pizza, a “safe” for Maisie option. I had planned to take a mid-afternoon break from the gym to have dinner with Eammon and Maisie so they picked me up at the gym along with Tia, Maisie’s teammate who happened to be hanging around the gym as her Mom worked and we headed out for pizza. Maisie and Tia were all giggles and silliness and enjoyed each other and the pizza. After dinner Eammon dropped Maisie, Tia and I back at the gym where the girls watched some of the competition and I worked until it was time to head home and fall into bed exhausted.
Tomorrow a really wonderful and Maisie “safe” Secret Recipe Club recipe will post over on Cook Lisa Cook so please check it out. On Tuesday a totally delicious yet not Maisie “safe” recipe for my Crazy Cooking Challenge will post but I posted a little sneak peak teaser of Dark Chocolate Dipped Candied Lemon Peel which are a little part of that recipe. I love these candied peels as the tartness of the lemon is offset perfectly by the chocolate. I swear that every time I walked by the tray I had to grab a few to snack on. So please check out this recipe and come back Tuesday to see what I made using these little treats.
