a weekend of good eats
as randy and i were cooking lunch this past sunday afternoon, we realized that every meal we ate last weekend was created from something we grew or harvested: salmon dip, hucklberry/peach bread, venison broccoli pasta salad, huckleberry pancakes, venison burgers & garden veggie sides. we didn’t even totally do it on purpose, we were simply trying to use the fresh foods in our fridge. we are trying to be better about eating food that’s in our house (yes, even truly non-perishables) before grocery shopping.
tara got me a cookbook called “simply in season” for my birthday last spring and for some reason i am just now truly putting it to use. i looked through the entire book last week and marked all the recipes i want to try. this weekend i tried a fruit bread and a pasta salad made from things we harvested. both were great! funny how that works when you actually follow a recipe 🙂
did i mention that we cooked and ate a lot last weekend?!
