When you live far from your family, they'll come to visit every once in a while. Since I'd come to Boston, all of my immediate family had come to visit, except my brother. He's married with two small (and very cute) girls, so I didn't really expect him to make the trip down. I had a very pleasant surprise this summer when he said that he and his family would be coming for a long weekend!
So they came and we did some traditional Boston touristy things. Since we had some small children, I adapted my normal people coming to visit plan to limit the walking. We also made a trip to aquarium, which was super fun.
I also decided to have them all over so I could make breakfast. In addition to the normal bacon, eggs, and pancakes, I decided to whip up something from the Flour cookbook. Surprise! I made the Homemade Pop-Tarts on page 88 of the cookbook. The pastry was buttery, flaky and delicious. It was a perfect combination with the raspberry filling. Even my little nieces enjoyed!
