Some of the things coming out of the garden

Standard

We do a lot of “skillet meals” in this house.  That means whatever we have, throw it in the pan and see what sort of magic comes out on the other end.

Potatoes, carrots, beets, basil and zucchini.

Uhmmmm, shred the beets and carrots?  Sure!

There it all is, along with a fresh onion from the garden who was too shy to be in the first picture.

I made some pesto with the basil and threw it all on top of some polenta.  Believe it or not, my kids loved it!  Fresh and yummy, still has a pulse, the way it should be.

Swing and a miss

Standard

I tried to make my own egg noodles the other day and what a mess I made. I used a vague recipe from a baby cookbook, yikes! They didn’t dry completely and turned out chewy and weird. If anyone out there has a recipe for egg noodles that is spectacular, let me know.
