Mid winter is a challenging time for me as a gardener and someone who loves to be outside. Even my kale left the land of the living, and usually it overwinters nicely. Since I do try to eat locally grow and seasonal foods, winter throws a bit of a monkey wrench into things. So the question is, how do you all do it?
This Saturday, I took a trip to the Farmer’s market and got a box of goldrush apples…my favorite, and even better that they store so well. I have frozen garlic, raspberries and oven roasted tomatoes from my summer garden harvest, and there’s even one Serrano pepper on our plant in our sunroom. My rosemary plant is alive and well, and of course there are a few jams around, too. I’d love to have more!
For the menu, I’m glad to be back to planning because I know it helps! And I do need new hosts (hint, hint) although Heather is on for next week with chocolate. yum.
Chicken with rosemary and olives and roasted cauliflower with rosemary and garlic
crockpot BBQ chicken with carrots and onions
turkey cutlets and caramelized cabbage
lentil dal and papads
hummus and peppers…one of my very favorites
the Jan DB treat, which is one of my very favorite most foods ever…stay tuned!
pumpkin bread (maybe)
And what about everyone else?
Kim at Gluten Free is Life is totally on the ball and helped me get this post up on time. First, check out her new digs! http://www.glutenfreeislife.com/ She’s got sweet potato fries on the menu, which always catches my attention, and squash is her seasonal food of choice.
