Weekend of Non-Cooking

Monday, August 31, 2009

I'm not slacking, I promise. We had a busy weekend of my niece's 1st Birthday on Saturday, and then lunch w/ an old friend on Sunday. Both were heavy "meals" so we didn't cook at home. I do have some great things in store for this week though.

Wanting to take advantage of fresh, summery ingredients before we move into fall. Here's my recipe list for this week:

Shrimp Stirfry w/ Brown Rice
Basil and Goat Cheese Chicken Breast w/ Whole Wheat Couscous
Summer Vegetable Pasta
Salmon Chermoula (amazing!) w/ TBD fresh veggies

With Labor Day fast approaching, I'm looking forward to some fall favorites. An amazing Cajun Chicken Soup, Turkey and Goat Cheese Lasagna (to die for), Chicken Pot Pies....mmMMmm. Fall foods are the BEST!!

We're actually heading to Texas later this week to visit family in Austin and Wimberley. I'm looking forward to gaining inspiration from my grandmother, who is an amazing South Texas/Mexican cook. Handmade tortillas, empanadas, and she cooks all by feel. No recipes. Just instinct. I hope to bring our video camera and set it up to record a few cooking sessions, so that we as a family can keep them on hand to TRY to recreate some of her amazing recipes ourselves.

More to come...
