We want the funk!!!!
Well not really. You know how you just feel like you are in a funk or a slump? Seriously, like you are in a rut that you can’t get out of? I have felt that way for the past few days. Hence, the lack of post. I am still cooking, and finishing up the cook-through of Vegan on the Cheap. I just have felt like a hermit or a turtle wanting to hide in its shell and float away. It could be a full moon, the alignment of the planets, who knows. Hopefully it will pass soon. I did want to post something. So, of course it will be about food and my cute little darling boys. I promise I will post about Vegan on the Cheap very soon. I just don’t feel much like typing a long post today. My sincere apologies.
The other day there was a butternut squash in our CSA that needed to be eaten. I love butternut squash and I especially love it in this recipe I created: Butternut Squash Gnocci with Sage “Butter”. It was so tasty. I served it with a side of roasted broccoli.
Next I made a simple mushroom pasta dish. It had sweet peas in it with a simple gravy sauce. The boys loved it. This made me happy because most children under the age of 5 will not touch mushrooms with a 10 foot pole. The dish was very easy to make and quite tasty.
Over the weekend, I wanted some Southern fried goodness. Not the healthiest dish, but darn tasty. Plus we had some okra in the garden and in our CSA box that needs to be eaten. I made chickpea cutlets, mashed potatoes with gravy, and fried okra. Josh said the potatoes were the creamiest and best potatoes he had ever tasted. I told him my secret ingredient. He said, “wow”. 😉
One of the best recipes created this week in our humble kitchen was a recipe called Coconut Mint Chocolate Pudding. Man oh man was it perfection in a cup. It was so good. And homemade pudding is so much better than the store bought. As well as cheaper and there are no preservatives. It was a little taste of heaven.
Last night I created a recipe we really enjoyed. It was a Curried Eggplant Casserole. It was so tasty. We had some eggplant from our CSA box and I didn’t feel much like making an Italian eggplant dish. So, I decided to go curry. I love curry and you can never go wrong with curry in my book.
Yesterday we took the boys to the local university to the science center. They had a lovely prehistoric display. Little Bear is obsessed with dinosaurs and big brother is pretty fond of them too. It was a great display and very educational.
I am off to make some roasted acorn squash soup and some muffins for Josh’s work. Hope you have a lovely Monday.
peas and love….
Krys and the boys
