We have taken a new direction in our food preparation and consumption. We are both concerned about what is in our food and where it comes from. Processed foods are slowly disappearing from out diets. Vegetables and fruits are abundant. And we are having fun!
An electric wok made by Breville (I have no affiliation just appreciation of their products) has joined the kitchen staff.
Jack has become the prep chef extraordinaire.
All of this done a little ahead of time quickly becomes a healthy dinner with some left for lunch the next day.
The grill has been put to use all winter.
We par-boiled the sweet potatoes and then grilled them. They were almost better than steak fries!
Fresh salads with homemade vinaigrette are our favorites. I like to garnish the salad with Parmesan crisps. These are easily prepared. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and spoon about a tablespoon of cheese onto the paper. Leave some space as they will spread. I use just a little bit more and use the back of the spoon to press the cheese down. Bake for about 6 minutes. Watch carefully! They can be made in various sizes and the time adjusted.
So, that's what been going on in the kitchen around here.
Then there is the knitting. I finished Charlotte's Web.
Have a wonderful day and week.
