We have a few flowers blooming in the yard, but I don’t feel right picking them when they are still working hard to grow. At the store this morning, I saw they had wildflower bouquets with rosemary in them, and I thought to myself- I definitely can do that.
Our pepper plants are actually exploding right now, and I’m so glad I didn’t rip them out of the ground in frustration rage a few months ago. But anyway, we had a good handful of shishito peppers early on, that we roasted in a pan. Along with some basil and chives that we mixed with yogurt and lemon for dipping. Easy and delish.
1. Shrimp and broccoli rabe. We had a bunch of broccoli rabe ready to pick in the garden, so we wanted an easy recipe to try. I don’t think we got the rabe right- it turned out really crispy and nothing like the picture- but the shrimps were tasty.
2. Broccoli and kale pasta bake. Yummy. I thought I had the sauce part all wrong, but turned out just fine. Would make again.
3. Sardine pasta with lemon and garlic. We’ve been trying to incorporate sardines into our meals, and we made a version of this. It was actually pretty good, and little dude couldn’t eat enough of it.
4. Banana yogurt muffins. Weren’t my favorite. Probably won’t make again. Maybe it was the sunflower seeds we used?
