Coming up with new ideas for dinner can be challenging. Thankfully we are in the best time of the year for nutritious and delicious options!
I like to go to our neighborhood veggie store to pick up fresh items for dinner.
Today yielded some kale, snap beans, new potatoes, and summer squash. I have been wanting to try this recipe I have seen other recipes around, but I do not care for vinegar. However I LOVE olive oil and this version really worked for me.
The funny thing is these kale chips taste just like real chips. I am not kidding. If you took a bite without looking at it you would not know. I know it sounds crazy but it is so true!
I really had a taste for roasted vegetables so I tossed a bit of summer squash, snap beans, and vidalia onion with some olive oil. I roasted this little medley at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Tossed with orzo it was fantastic! It was light and very satisfying. I used Ina’s recipe for the new potatoes~ of course they were fabulous!! That goes without saying…
Every time I see cherries I just feel so happy. They are one of my very favorite fruit. Especially these oh gosh they are good! I know these are not a local product and honestly there is nothing that can be done about that fact. I will have them~ they are that good. I know how important it is to eat local etc, and I really do try to do just that. I have to rationalize it this way, I lived in Portland, OR for a short time and my uncle lives in Seattle. So, it is for old times sake?! That is the best I can do. I have some Memphis peaches, and Ripley tomatos waiting their turn for tomorrow’s meal…
~So my 6 year old “made” us desert! Isn’t it pretty??
My new thing to do with apples is to spread this on them ~ oh it is heavenly!
This is where I am right now. I always seems to be thinking of food!
I need to to start another batch of this bread and I am going to try it without preheating the oven ~ because it is too hot here to have that oven preheating~ sounds like it might just work.
I am gearing up to get back to work on my little project~
but first I am trying to finish another Shalom
ughh.. to many projects with not near enough time..
