Darn you, CeeJay! ;)

July 7th, 2017 at 12:50 am

You must have gotten into my brain like a gourmet amoeba!

I don't know what came over me. But today, I made three new recipes.

1. A new marinade plus recipe for baked chicken legs.

2. I had most of a stale (amazing) baguette leftover from the farm market yesterday. They are amazing but they don't last, because they are baked with no preservatives, so I thought. Hmmm. I'll try that recipe for bread pudding and caramel sauce! (On the stove, as we speak.)


3. Then, I had five tiny tiny granny smith apples leftover from last week's farm share. One more day, and they'd start to go bad, so another Hmmmm... I made an apple-pie ice cream sauce and it was a huge hit for dessert. It seriously tasted just like apple pie. On ice cream. I'm dying!

Normally, I dread cooking. But, maybe there's something to putting more effort into trying new things and being creative. Maybe it'll get us out of our dinnertime rut!

This is my favorite time in the food year, though. We're getting produce out of the garden and can buy most of everything else at the farmer's market. Good living!

    Oh good! I thought I was in trouble, but I got in your head in a good way. Wink Those all sound awesome. We had a new combo of stuff for a salad tonight; I do love how the season encourages new thinking to take advantage of fresh produce.

    Cooking sounds like the perfect thing to do when recovering as it's fairly low energy, keep up the good work!

    Yum. And an outlet for your frustrated desire to get stuff done.

    Yum! I think Ceejay's temptations were good things!
