gettin’ busy in the kitchen
Here are a few recipes I’m hoping to try out this week:
These lentil “meatballs” would be delightful with some wilted kale and tomato sauce, perhaps with a scattering of freshly grated Parmesan. And a poached egg. (I’m currently obsessed with topping everything with poached or fried eggs. I can’t stop myself.)
I have a freezer full of berries from last summer and a desire to eat healthier, and this Strawberry Cucumber smoothie from Joy sounds tempting and fresh. SOLD!
I’m planning on doing a riff on these mini Meyer lemon tarts for my Cooking Club this Saturday. Our theme is “appetizers”, so naturally, I want to do bite-size desserts. I’m thinking maybe some wee brownies, too? With a Mexican hot chocolate twist?
Or I might just find myself also showing up with homemade soft pretzels with a cheddar beer dipping sauce or perhaps some kind of zesty spice topping. Because let’s be honest: eating healthy all the time is overrated. And pretzels are delicious.
What’s showing up in your kitchen this week?
