WOWZA! What a Week and THEN Some! Glad I'm able to take a few moments to start trying to catch up on my blog and many other things around the house! I was extremely busy with work and our county fair last week but I will be chatting about that throughout this week, I am sure! For now I would like to share a few things I did last week for quick food in between all of the CRAZINESS! I didn't crop these photos - sorry about that! This DARK Sauce was VERY rich and flavorful. I used it as a dip, a dressing, and a sauce. It's a variation of a recipe in one of my many Moosewood Cookbooks I have laying around the house.
Here is what's in it...
6 Sun-Dried Tomatoes
2 Cloves Garlic
A Few leaves of Sweet Basil
2 T Balsamic
Water for Consistency
Here's a strange angle on my funky pasta noodles I had the one night. I did a Chunky Tomato Marinara which included:
3 Cloves Garlic
1 C Crushed Tomatoes
2 T dried Basil (ran out of fresh)
1/4 tea Thyme
1/4 tea Oregano
1 T Parsley
2 tea (or less) of Grapeseed Oil
Raw Cane Sugar to taste from Wholesome Sweeteners
This is just a little something I threw together - sorry I didn't have the exact measurements. But I used what was left of the Daiya Shreds, a bit of Almond Milk, a few Tablespoons of Medium Salsa, and a bit of Earth Balance and melted it down. It was thin but super flavorful. It was a nice comfort food that night.
I'm still re-cooperating from all of the hustle-bustle last week. Actually it was Saturday the 3rd thru Yesterday! I did quite a bit of volunteering, tho, so that felt good. I worked in two food booths for the fair in between all of my other responsibilities between work, concerts, and helping the hubby with his stuff, too!
