Summer Soup…..

This evening, I made soup for dinner.  I made a raw broccoli soup.  Or, as I like to call it, “Rawccoli Soup”.  Ha ha.  All kidding aside, it was so tasty.  I found the recipe online.  It was worth making, and it made a ton.  Mmmm.

Well, tomorrow is the 4th of July  here.  We plan to play in the pool, check out fireworks, and cook some awesome food.

I am off to enjoy what is left of the evening.  Hope you have a lovely night.

A lovely Sunday…..

Yesterday was nice.  We finally got some much needed rain.  I finished making some cupcakes for an order.  While I was doing that, Josh made some delicious breakfast empanadas.  They were so good.  We filled them with roasted potatoes, tofu scramble, and Daiya cheddar.  Yum!  And there were so many, we have a container full in the freezer.  Woo hoo!

We relaxed most of the day, ran a few errands, and watched a movie.  For dinner, I made a chickpea stroganoff.  I added kale, and made a lovely cashew sour cream.  It was so good.

Well,  I am to make some kale chips and start some sourdough bread.  Hope you have a lovely Monday.

Deliciously creamy…..

For dinner last night, I made a curried cashew cauliflower dish.  I made a creamy cashew sauce and seasoned it with curry powder and tamari.  I added it to some sauteed cauliflower, carrots, spinach, mushrooms, onion, and garlic.  I addded some additional spices, and some cayenne to give the meal a little kick.  It was so tasty and creamy over brown rice.  It will be a definite repeat.

This evening, dinner is easy.  We are having leftovers.  The boys had a long week, with the oldest going to camp every day.  We are going to eat some leftovers, and cuddle on the couch to watch a movie.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Fusion, or conFusion?

This evening we had a lovely mix of flavors.  I made quinoa, topped it with pinto beans, fresh, chopped, kale, a homemade chipotle tomato sauce, and a spoonful of cilantro pesto.  It was so good.  I can’t wait to eat the leftovers. 

The hubster said is this, “fusion, or conFusion?’  I said, “fusion, maybe.  ConFusion is leftover night when you have a mix of all the meals you ate during the week.”  You know, leftover tacos, with the soba noodle salad.   Ha ha.  Fusion or conFusion, either way, the dish was delicious!

It was another hot day here.  I had to do some baking.  Our oldest son is at a Spanish camp this week, and the theme is, Around the World.  Tomorrow they are having a potluck, and we are supposed to bring something from our heritage.  I made Scottish shortbread, and hamantashen.  They both turned out tasty.  The hamantashen did leak outside of the dough while baking.  Josh said it is because I didn’t use 8 eggs in it, like most Jewish recipes call for.  He’s a wise guy!

Well, tomorrow is another early day.  Until then, have a great evening.

Hot and spicy…..

This evening, dinner was spicy.  And it was hot outside.  When I say “hot”, I mean HOT.  The temperature was 108F.  For my friend’s across the pond, that is 42 Celsius.  And being the crazy person who loves to cook, I still decided to make a spicy dish.  Ha ha.  And the recipe makes a ton.  I threw everything in the crockpot this morning, put it to work.  Crockpots are amazing, and definitely one of my favorite appliances.

This post is short and spicy. I am going to hang out with my guys before they go to sleep.  Our 5 year old has camp this week, so our day starts early.  Sweet dreams.

Cool ceviche…..

Not to worry, no fish were harmed in the making of this ceviche.  It is made with cauliflower and it is cool, refreshing, and perfect for summer.  Josh loves this recipe. I served it with some guacamole, refried beans, and sauteed spicy squash.  It was delicious. 

Cauliflower Ceviche

1 medium cauliflower, chopped small

1/2c fresh lime juice

1/2c fresh lemon juice

1/3c red onion, diced fine

1/2c fresh tomatoes, chopped

1 serrano pepper, minced

1t salt

1/4t Mexican oregano

1/8t cayenne pepper

1/4c loosely packed fresh cilantro, chopped

avocado, sliced

tortilla chips

 In a ceramic bowl, combine all the ingredients except the tomato, avocado and tortilla chips.  Cover and place in the fridge.  Let sit in the fridge for an hour. After 1 hour, stir the mixture again.  Place in fridge and let it sit for several hours in order for the flavors to blend.  When ready to serve, gently stir in the tomato.  Serve with fresh avocado slices and tortilla chips.

After reading the weather forecast for next week, I am avoiding using the oven after 11am.  A hot house in the summertime is no fun, no fun at all.  Any bread baking will be done long before then.  I think I will be making a lot more cooler dishes for dinner. 

Speaking of cooler, we went swimming this evening, and it was wonderful.  That is  one of the benefits of living somewhere very warm, the pool is oh so nice.

Well, I am off to bed.  Hope you are having a pleasant evening.
