It was snowing this morning. This was a great distraction from the pandemic which is now just a normal part of our lives. Ignacio and I took a short walk in the snow and it was in fact glorious. I think it was nice just to see and do something different. Even though it was the same sidestreets we were walking on they were at least sidestreets covered with snow.
It’s January and it’s that time of the year where I want to start afresh and I am a little bit more motivated to declutter. This year I thought I would start with the freezer. It has been successful, we have eaten all of the frozen meat, fish and most of the frozen vegetables. I have now moved to the top shelf of the fridge, which for some reason has packets of dried apricots, dates and prunes. They seem to have been there for a supiciously long time and needed to move. I chose to start with the dates and found an easy recipe online .
It’s a very easy recipe to execute and the finished date squares/slice are quite nice, sweet and crunchy, perfect with a cup of tea. I think that the remaining prunes and apricot might end up in some similiar baked good creation.
If you can’t find Medjool dates, use regular dried dates.
Reference: Date squares (the best)
