I had a bunch of tomatoes sitting on my counter...aging. So, I roasted them in the oven at 400F for about 30 minutes with a little bit of olive oil, salt & pepper. They turn out sweet and delicious. I've been trying to incorporate the roasted tomatoes into everything we've been eating this week and I made this Roasted Tomato Bruschetta as a snack. We have grilled bread (sourdough!) with a hearty portion of roasted tomatoes on top, followed by chopped fresh basil, salt & pepper, a few feta crumbles and a drizzle of olive oil for good measure. Happy snacking!
I've loved the summer but I'm so ready to get back into my regular routine.
It's been awhile since I've done meal prep, which means my fridge has been way out of whack. Which means...UGH. But! SUMMER! We've sure lived it, and our dinners mostly consisted of snacks, popcorn, tacos, take-out, with a few BBQ situations and the occasional dinner out. We suuuuuure didn't skimp on calories this summer. Now, I have to somehow get back into the swing of things.
It's hot out and that means that I don't want something HOT to eat. Let's make a salad. Let's make a hearty salad that doesn't make me want bread. Can that be done? Yes. With this salad of potatoes and salmon mixed with a garlicky, lemon, dill, anchovy dressing....tossed with peppery arugula so there's no need for garlic bread. Although I wouldn't say no if you put it in front of me
2015-16 school year. Let's make it hearty & healthy.
It's been a long time since I've done an Out & About post here, hasn't it?
This weekend my friend Lisa and I had a lady date Saturday morning (we were LONG OVERDUE) in San Francisco. We went to Flax for art supplies and then Kit Tea. There's nothing like art supply shopping and cat snuggling on a Saturday!
Kit Tea is a really cool tea/cat bar in Hayes Valley. I stumbled upon it a few weeks ago when I was going to Zuni for dinner with my friend Gaby. You can make a reservation to cuddle with 10-15 cats while you drink tea (you pay for a half hour or a whole hour!). And that's what I did this past Saturday. We spend a whole hour cuddling & playing with cats.
