Missy, here. I'm deep in a deadline fog with a book due June 30th. Down to the wire!
Sooo…not much cooking going on other than the regular recipes I've already shared here. So far this week I've made:
Pasta Bolognese (shared it here) and have eaten it leftover already. I have to admit this one isn't all that quick. But it's worth a little effort. And I needed a short break anyway. :)
Fettuccine Alfredo (shared it here). This is amazingly quick!
Are we seeing a trend here?? Yes, I love pasta! And it's a comfort food as I near deadlines. :)
I've also been making salads. And went crazy with buying produce at the grocery store over the weekend. Don't you love it when so many fruits are in season?! I even took a photo to share.
Yes, I probably went a little overboard. But we're eating lots of fruit and salads! One of the things I love right now is peaches. And since I don't like the fuzz, I like nectarines even more.
Here are white and yellow fleshed nectarines.
And here are something unusual, black velvet apricots. They're actually an apricot-plum mix. You can read about them here. Hubby and I decided they look and taste more like plums. And boy, they really do feel as if they're coated in velvet!
Oh! I just remembered I also got a seasonal special. It's time for Vidalia onions! (usually pronounced Vie (with a long i)-dail'-ya) I wrote a post about them (here). They're yummy grilled with butter and salt and pepper. Yes, just eat them by themselves as a side dish. :)
What are you favorite fruits and vegetables? Anything unusual like the apricot-plum hybrid?
