It’s been a busy month! This is why I didn’t want to start blogging again (which I use the term loosely, since I never really picked up much traction to begin with) – I feel so guilty when I don’t post anything! Not a big deal of course – hopefully I can find the time to post more than once monthly – but here are the CSA and non-cooking relating highlights of the month!
Week 5 haul:
- 2 bunches of garlic
Week 5 – CSA Haul
- 1 purple cabbage
- 6 ears of corn
- small bunch of carrots
- yellow squash
- spring onion (did not take)
- bag of jalapeño peppers
The rest of the month was not photographed (I blame our beach volleyball schedule for that!) but I featured some of the recipes I liked the most below, as well as some of the activities that kept us so busy this month and away from the kitchen!
This rice was appointed into the top three of the hubs’ favorite homemade dishes. So I thought it is absolutely necessary to share. I really love eating rice and pasta, specifically, but hate how bloated I feel after. I saw this recipe and thought it would fit perfectly into our repertoire because of our love of fried rice. I also adapted the recipe to what we had on hand, and hope to add more veggies next time we make it. There will certainly be a next time.
Everyone has their comfort food, and for years mine has been penne pasta with sauce. For years I tried finding the perfect bottled sauce but nothing ever was quite right.
Somewhere along the way the Hubs and I decided to make our own tomato sauce. We don’t always make it exactly the same way, and never really measure the ingredients, but it always tastes a million times better than jarred. Always.
Finally. I may have let these brussels sprouts sit longer than I intended but I finally attempted to roast them after having a similar dish at a few restaurants nearby the past couple of years (Bluegrass Tavern was the best, btw).
