Uh oh, looks like I have become obsessed with pesto,
asparagus and spaghetti. Please forgive me. I will change. I
promise. Next week will be different.
Summer is coming . .
. That means our vege shops and supermarkets are being
infiltrated by glorious spears of asparagus!
Recently I received a "we're sorry you got conjunctivitis in
both eyes leading to the bursting of blood vessels making you
look like a hideous zombie'' care package from my parents.
OK, so I know this
isn't a meal recipe. But it is a recipe for what could become
the basis of a meal. BLTs, salmon and cream cheese . .
. the combinations are endless. Breakfast, lunch, dinner.
I used to be afraid of pasta: Pasta equals carbs. Carbs
equals calories. And calories make you fat. Yet somehow I
could justify two pieces of cake. And cake CLEARLY does not
contain carbs (not).
Paella. Like in tortilla, the ‘l's are pronounced with a
‘ya' sound. So ‘pie-yay-ya'.
Pancakes for dinner is legit, right?
It's that time of
year again: leek season.
Chickpeas are my new
obsession. Home-made hummus, falafel, chickpea curries. They
are everywhere in my food.
Apparently I am on a
diet (tell that to the cookies I just baked, the chocolate
tart I made on Sunday and the cookie dough balls I keep on
hand for cookie-related emergencies stocked in the freezer.)
