It’s been a busy week at my place. My hubby has been traveling and Yellowdog and I have done our best to hold down the fort. Unfortunately, it’s got me in a bit of a cooking rut. When I am just cooking for myself, I don’t usually have a lot of motivation. I’ve had a lot of scrambled eggs and salads (to use up our CSA lettuce)!
So, since I will finally have someone to cook for again this weekend, I’ve been keeping my eye open for fresh new recipes all week! I have to admit, though, that the recipes that are appealing most to me these days are the simple ones. I am finding that my energy in the kitchen is starting to fade, especially now that warm (even hot!) weather is here to stay. I am hoping that these recipes will give me the motivation I need to make something other than scrambled eggs!
- This Endive Cashew Slaw from La Fuji Mama immediately caught my eye this week. I love the idea to use endive in a slaw instead of cabbage. I think both my hubby and I will enjoy this simple and refreshing slaw!
- Lately I have been craving Coke slushies all the time… But, I am trying to limit how many of them I drink since there are really no redeeming qualities to a Coke slushie. So, I can’t wait to try this Strawberry Watermelon Slushie Spritzer from Rachel Cooks… I am thinking it may help me forget about the Coke slushies entirely!
- Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies, so I can’t get this Roasted Asparagus and Cherry Tomato Sandwich from A Thought for Food out of my head. I’m always excited for new meatless meal ideas, and I know this one will be a new favorite!
- I am (not so) patiently waiting for fresh peaches and nectarines to show up at the local farmer’s market and in our fruit CSA. As soon as they do, I will be making this lovely Nectarine Upside-Down Cake from Add a Pinch. Not only is the cake fabulous, but I think you will find that the blog post is beautifully written, as well.
