Our Weekend’s Food
I hope everyone had a great weekend! We did. It was busy, but fun. One thing we did, many times, was enjoy lots of good food. Here’s some of what we had:
We had Pizza Friday, as per usual, with lots ofÃ‚ Abundant Harvest OrganicsÃ‚ veggies as our toppings: summer squash, onion, kale, eggplant (I’ll admit that this wasn’t my favorite on pizza, but I might not have done it correctly… I ate all but one tiny piece), and a few non-AHO veggies that I had on hand before I got our most recent box: olives and red pepper. I usedÃ‚ my favorite crust recipeÃ‚ and rolled it out thin, but not too thin (this wasn’t a flatbread kinda evening). I baked the crust for about 5 minutes before topping it with tomato sauce, veggies and Sharp Cheddar Cheese, then baked again for 8 minutes and it was delicious!
With some of the leftover mushrooms and onions from the lesson, some lamb that our friend Will brought, and some Apple Butter that my friend Joanna gave me, I made some crostini (not all on one crostino, silly!) for an easy Sunday Supper. Oh so yummy!
We enjoyed a Curried Pasta salad with our new friends John and Ann. Ann also made a Thai Peanut Dip for some raw veggies. I will be making this in the future. It was so good!
The weekend’s over, but we’re still gonna have some good food this week. I have a Tri Tip roast cooking in the Crock Pot right now. It might not make it ’till dinner. We may have it for lunch as Roast Beef Sandwiches (maybe with some sauteed onions and red peppers, horseradish and mayo).
This week’s AÃ‚ Cooking Show with Rachel O – This Week’s Feast,Ã‚ will feature an Everything Roasted dinner. We’ll have Abundant Harvest Organics Sweet Potatoes, and Broccoli (plus a few other goodies) and then roast a chicken to go along with them (which you can purchase as an add-on with your AHO order). The meal will be featured as Thursday’s dinner on this week’s menu, and recipes will be linked to the next episode of the show (found on here and on youtube). Hope you’ll join me and cook along! (Psst – It’s super easy!! Here’s the basic recipe that I’ll improvise on slightly in the show. Really, not so difficult!)
- 1 whole chicken
- olive oil
- Line a pan with foil, drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Place chicken in pan. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Bake at 375F for 1 hour 15 min (until it gets to 180F), basting every 30 minutes.
- Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
We gave this **** (“Amazing”)
