April Dinner: Coconut Panna Cotta

Coconut Panna Cotta
Marcona Almond Toffee Streusel, Salted Vanilla Caramel, Salted Coconut Chips, Pineapple Foam, Basil Gel and Micro Basil.

I am guilty of not getting stuff done. It's been a combination of time, stress, problems with work, and being overwhelmed with life in general. I haven't updated my blog in a long time, nor have I posted pics from the farm or other projects. I haven't given up hope yet; I hope to get around to some of this soon. See, my mom had surgery a couple of days ago and I'm in Katy for a couple of weeks taking care of her. I hope to get more stuff sorted out and posted while she sleeps between medicine doses.

S. and I cooked another dinner in April sans his friend Ryan. It was a bit more stressful and we were pressed for time since he wanted to get as much as he could from Green City Market on Saturday morning. I was sick starting the previous Saturday with allergies and asthma, and had a cough I could not shake, which meant I couldn't start my prep until Thursday, doing most of it on Friday after work.

Though I'd change a few things about the plating, which came together a la minute (it didn't quite turn out like I'd pictured it in my head), I think I did a pretty good job for the first version. While eating it, I told S. that it tasted like coconut cream pie which is one of my favorite desserts.
