Cooking hasn't been going that well around here yet, but every once in a while I have some time in the kitchen. This was dinner last night:
And it's also lunch today. This is one of my favorite ways to eat. Big bowl and a bunch of different things piled together. Last night we had simple salt and pepper tofu, roasted butternut squash with thyme (SADLY no garlic for Dashiell's sake), quinoa, greens and avo, topped with marcona almonds and yummy olive oil. It's actually just as good cold. Nearly.
I'm trying to stick to only one avocado a day. One is plenty, I tell myself. But they are so delicious and I buy so many at the farmer's market that if I eat one for lunch it's hard to resist another for dinner. HALF should be fine for each meal. Must remember that. Also, the Heath pasta bowls are my favorite part of our dinnerware. They are perfect for everything.
Also of note, a lovely grated beet and carrot salad I've been making for a few years from Chocolate & Zucchini. Do not attempt without a cuisinart + grater attachment.
Loads of Hefe-Weiss being consumed in our home. I DESERVE one at the end of the day. I do. There are many yummy options. Here are two (empty) faves:
And a new snack I can't live without:
Perfectly toasty almonds and raisins sprinkled with sea salt. Just try it, You will love. It's like very upscale, but insanely simple gorp. Laura made it while she was out and now I must have a bowl at the ready at all times.
So that's where things stand in this kitchen. I may have been a bit over zealous at the farmer's market yesterday. Not sure exactly how I'm going to use all the produce I came home with, but we'll see. At least none of it will give my baby gas. Except maybe the english flowering broccoli? BUT IT WAS TOO BEAUTIFUL TO RESIST. I will show you when I use it.
