Feta? With Cranberries? You’re On!

I am a sucker for a pretty food picture and this grilled wedge salad with fried egg and strawberry feta from My Name is Yeh looks wonderful.  Consider this my next challenge to actually make after I have pinned it on Pinterest. It has eggs, it has cheese, it has fruits and veggies and it has the world’s greatest food – BACON!!

A Bowl and Chopsticks

I was up way too late last night and stumbled upon these picnic bowl recipes on the 101 Cookbooks website. The ginger soba noodle bowl is looking mighty good as I am a carb slut and ginger dressing is a gift from GOD! We already have tarragon and tofu at the house so this may happen this week. Fingers crossed people!!!

Update:

After picking up these Soba noodles, shallots, grilled chicken breast (too lazy too cook the tofu the original recipe asks for), and miso ginger dressing at the store; I added ginger and soy we already had at home. Truth be told I was so in love with the picture of the completed dish I failed to see all of the ingredients it called for. Let’s call this one my “prototype”.  I added a bit of salt, freshly ground pepper, and red pepper flakes.

Not bad if I do say so myself. The kid scarfed it down and that is always a good sign. Maybe next time I will actually follow the directions and buy the correct ingredients. Or maybe I will build on this creation I came up with myself…a hard boiled egg, a few grilled shrimp, a bit of Chinese five spice..hmm. That sounds tasty.

Eat up!

 

 

snow for ice cream

When In Nome…

Well we aren’t really in Nome(Alaska) ; but dang if it doesn’t feel like it. This snowy/sleety weather has been a beast; however this morning I decided to make the best of it – and make something of it. After making many forts, Lego towers, and messes I finally got the boy to help me create a snack to eat.

With four simple ingredients – snow, milk, sugar, and vanilla extract; we made snow ice cream. I used a single serve ice cream dish to mix it all. Add ingredients to the taste and consistency that you like best.
