what I ate #1: buttermilk everything

Did you notice that I posted every day this week? I'm trying to make up for the lack of posts in recent months. My big note to self this summer was that I really need to lower my expectations when it comes to getting writing of any kind done. 

I've been cooking up a storm this week (3 dinners parties in 3 days?!?!) so I thought I'd kick-off all these cook-offs with a new blog section titled: what I ate. Pretty self-explanatory. And I'll link, whenever possible, to the recipes.

The first dinner was full of buttermilk. Since it expires, I tend to clump my buttermilk cooking into one week that always includes buttermilk pancakes. 

In this case, we had buttermilk roasted chicken from smitten kitchen's awesome recipe:

Then some buttermilk biscuits (perhaps a recipe in the near future?):

A happy salad: (I added garbanzo beans)

And this rhubarb snacking cake (A big hit!) also from smitten kitchen:

I brought the leftover rhubarb cake to doodle's preschool teacher lounge and apparently it went fast!
