This week’s food is one of my absolute favorites: avocado. I grew up eating avocado sandwiches. Now I skip the bread and just get to the good stuff. Thanks for Cooking and UNcooking, this week’s host, for picking such a fabulous food!
I still have a stomach bug, and I made a huge vat of turkey soup with spring onions, carrot tops, ginger and allspice. I expect that’ll be quite a few of my meals.
And my birthday oat recipe contest is still up until May 31st if anyone is interested!
Roasted salmon with an avocado “lemon” thyme sauce: I tried this Avocado Remulade recipe from Elise. We LOVED the creaminess, but the flavor didn’t appeal to us. So we’ve re-worked and it’s become a favorite, especially when wild salmon is only available frozen.
Marinated roasted rainbow peppers with buffalo burgers
Mixed veggies with a Malaysian curry sauce (we’ll see how/if this one works…)
Chocolate banana “pudding” (featuring avocado)
Garam masala chicken with Broccoli with 5 spices and papadams
my birthday. I’m trying to rope DH in going on a day trip with me, so who knows where we’ll be, or what we’ll be eating.
Weekly harvest from my garden:
From the Farmer’s Market
Rhubarb (I hope!)
the new Daring Bakers challenge, which looks quite promising!
The broccoli recipe sounds great I may see if it works on cauliflower if we still have some left later in the week which I suspect we will!
Hope you feel better soon!
I’m a cauli fiend, let me know if you try it, and I assume I’ll try it at some point, too!
