I'm linking with Ruth Ayres, and her weekly link up. Read More about that here. And then join in!
This week; I celebrate food. We've explored a lot of recipes this week together as a family. I love the creativity and hospitality that can result when food is being prepared and shared. It just slows everything down. It brings people into my kitchen, which I love.
The photos are from the links to the website. My food photography skills aren't good yet, I'll keep trying. :)
3 recipes I made this week:
Verdict: Epic. Fail. I stirred frequently. But the potatoes didn't get done. And there was a weird vinegar smell/taste/ohmystartswhatwentwrong? We still celebrate this because it was funny, and I couldn't even make my kids eat it, because it went so wrong. For us, this has become the "remember when mom made that?" story. But I think it has potential, so you should try it if you are good at risottos.
Verdict: A Keeper! They took a long time. But we had someone sitting at our counter who we are getting to know as a friend and had great conversation while I put these together. And my dad is an Organic Farmer, so getting to use farm to table meat makes me feel good about serving it to people.
Verdict: A Keeper! It makes so much! The boys liked it. I liked it. Great as leftovers. As leftovers for lunch, I ate it with some cottage cheese on the side and 1/2 an avocado. It seems to freeze well too. And my Li'l One doesn't always appreciate a lot of meat at dinner, so this gives us some proteins without the meat. He gobbled it right up!
I hope you have much to celebrate too! Enjoy your week!
