U is for Udon!
I’m telling you… I’m dead keen on quinoa.
When we go to a Thai restaurant I pretty much know what I’m going to order before I walk in the door…
Today the chance for rain in Phoenix went from 30 percent to 20 percent…
My “Gigi” (my husband’s grandma) said it best: “It never rains at 20 percent”. Sadly, I know she’s right.
It was slightly overcast yesterday for an hour or two and I thought…. YES!! The rain is going to come! My hopes were shattered today when that percentage changed. I’ve started sucking on ice cubes to keep myself cool. I don’t mind the heat for the first few weeks but then it starts to make me tired and more easily irritated… by August I’m so ready for the heat to be over I can hardly stand it.
Besides ice cubes, the foods that sound best right now are those that are cool and refreshing… like chilled Pico di Gallo!
“Mojo” is not a word I use often…
Okay, I never use that word.
But apparently Bobby Flay likes to use it to describe the sauce in this recipe of his…
And let me just say… call it what you like, it’s DELICIOUS!
Some mashed potatoes and cheesy broccoli on the side and you’ve got a meal!
Yes, the “I” in our A to Z line up is for ITALIAN SAUSAGE!
I must admit, I’m a bit burned out on sausage for the time being, as we have been eating sausage recipes all week….
But you don’t have to make them all in the same week like I did… If you are a sausage-lovin’-family (as we are) you might be able to do 2-3 meals without hitting burnout! 🙂
First up….. nope, not an Italian dish…
Sausage Soft Tacos with Roasted Veggie Salsa and Cilantro-Lime Sour Cream
My mouth is officially watering…
Maybe I’m not as burned out on sausage as I thought!
One of my favorite things to make is Guacamole.
Avocados are delicious in any form in my opinion… but they are especially delicious in guacamole. I have a sort of “standard” way I like to make guacamole and I thought… hey, why not add a little feta right into the guacamole?? I couldn’t imagine it being bad and it turned out wonderful! Just a fun way to mix things up a bit… especially if you want to put a greek twist on your guacamole! You could even serve it with pita chips instead of tortilla chips if you wanted to go Greek all the way!
