when I was intentional about eating fresh during the summer?
Well.... I'm baaaaaacccccckkkk.
At least I'm going to make an effort - lol.
We love the fresh veggies of summer!
This week we bought beets, squash, lettuce,
new potatoes and sweet potatoes.
So here's what I did:
Cubed everything up and roasted in the oven -
That's the squash on one side and chicken and onions on the other...
I drizzled a little olive oil over it all....
I also added the new potatoes and sweet potatoes to the mix after getting them
started in the microwave first....
While the chicken and veggies were in the oven, I made the salad.
Y'all know this is a favorite of mine -
Fresh roasted beets [wrap in foil to bake and use plastic gloves [[or a grocery sack in this instance]] to peel, using a spoon - ha] then slice over greens and add some goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette. Oh. My.
So here it is before we served it up -
It didn't take much time to make it look yummy.
The result - delicious.
And one could argue - why go to the trouble to put it ON the skewer
if you're just going to take it OFF to eat it --
Presentation, it makes food look yummy!
2nd meal: white beans and cornbread with fried squash -
Always a favorite.
And I still have a few squash left to grill up and serve with the extra chicken I cooked while the oven was going. It's really not so hard to cook a good meal at home...
