We’ve gone a little exotic this week with our theme, “Umami”, as chosen by Asparagus Thin. And who doesn’t love savory goodness? We had a great quinoa dish with kalamatas this weekend, and I’m hoping to work in some stock next weekend to celebrate. I can’t wait to see what others do!
This week will be a busy one, so I’ll be focusing on what I can do easily. But I’m also hoping to return to baking this weekend with totally decadent vegan brownies that are just amazing. I had quite a few bouts of the stomach flu over the last few weeks and now I’m supposed to gain some weight. What can I say, the brownies should help!
Oh, and last call for the healthy recipe contest! There are really some amazing prizes donated, like a $75 tote from BRM, Carol Fenster’s new book, etc.
Beef coconut curry with collards
Turkey with celery in a chestnut sauce and cornbread for my DH
Rhubarb ginger compote
Avocado and tomato soup with caramelized onions (last jar…sniff sniff!)
Thyme salmon with roasted mini peppers
Chicken in a parsley/garlic marinade with broccoli
Sweet potato cornbread–it didn’t happen last week, but DH really deserves a treat. Fingers crossed.
Have a great week!
