This Week's Food Waste
A little cucumber and tomato salad.
The fridge has been fuller than normal recently with fresh produce and somehow the last bit of this salad got hidden in the back. However, we really do like it, so I made another one today. I don't think this one is going to get lost because I not only made another one today, we ate it all today.
This Week's True Food Confessions
|Our treat for the week--yellow watermelon|
We were lucky this weekend to go to a couple of cookouts.We took the food for one of them, but it still felt like a treat. Also, we used fresh tomatoes to make a mushroom and tomato sauce for tortellini one night. Another night was chicken and potstickers and yet another we had pizza (still can't say enough about Aldi's take and bake pizza.) Despite all of my longing to not cook, we actually only had takeout one night with Subway Sandwiches.
I didn't try a new recipe this week, but I did try a new food--yellow watermelon. The outside of the watermelon looked the same, but the flesh inside was yellow instead of pink. The novelty of the melon got "I-don't-like-watermelon" Wally to try it. And guess what? He liked it as much as everyone else.
Until next time...
