It’s that time of year…. time to cook like crazy. The weather is chilly, the house is decorated, people are coming and going. The best thing to do is put your kitchen to work with some meals to cozy up to.
Monday – Boursin Mac and Cheese with Chopped Kale (I’m making this one up as I go. I’ll post the recipe if it comes out OK.)
Wow, it feels good to be back! We are getting settled in at Chateau Charmant and it feels like home!!! I am getting back in the kitchen and doing some real cooking. I have all of my kitchen gadgets and utensils back. It feels so wonderful!
Monday – Herb Crusted Sirloin with mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus
Tuesday – Italian Meatballs with Marinara Sauce
Wednesday – Tacos! (It is the princess’s birthday and tacos are her favorite.)
With the threat of snow in the forecast on Tuesday and Wednesday (Seriously?! It’s North Carolina in March!), I decided to make some warm, savory stuff. But later in the week it should be in the 60’s, so let the grilling begin! (Again, North Carolina in March!) Stay tuned for the the recipes showing up. I need to take some photos of the food. And I need some photography lessons so bear with me!
Monday – Penne with Avocado, Arugula and Spinach Pesto. It’s very simple – 1/2 avocado, 1 handful each of spinach, basil and arugula, 1 clove garlic, 2 Tbsp. olive oil and 1/2 C. parmesan cheese.
