Fun times, again, in the kitchen! Fun making our own pasta, and better than some of the store bought “stuff”. Pasta dishes can take all forms and so can breakfast. Here we made two different breakfasts – two days – and a really good pasta dinner. Let’s look at breakfast first. Left-Click any of these photos to see enlarged.
Really had fun preparing these three dinners. Some were better than others, but all were good. The quinoa in the Eggplant/Quinoa side dish, was under cooked and therefore still crunchy. Never did fluff.
The braise scallops and the braised tilapia were both very good. And the asparagus and onions were super. Here, take a look at these. No recipes available as these were put together “on the spot”. As the show says, open your baskets and make something from the ingredients. Really fun to work in the kitchen this way. Cheers!
Wow! This was really a great change and it was Good! Take a look.
Here is the recipe for the Zucchini Pancakes. Another tasty way to use up all of those zucchini you either have now or will shortly. They could make a great party appetizer/finger food treat if you eat them cold with a dipping sauce. Then there is the Eggplant Pizza. Here is a recipe that is close, Eggplant Pizza, but we altered it. Instead of using a tomato sauce, we used fresh sliced Roma tomatoes. And for the cheese we used Burrata and some Feta. I sauteed the eggplant on one side, turned it and placed the tomato slice(s) on the eggplant, then the cheese and fresh basil. When the eggplant was browned, I placed a lid on the pan and let the cheese melt. These were really yummy!
The zucchini, eggplant, onions and Roma tomatoes all came from the Boise Farmers Market. The basil and the green Zebra tomato came from our garden. Cheers!
