Snow up to here…

January 19, 2018

temps down to there. Makes the idea of slaving over a hot stove downright inviting. So, for this New Year a new entry in the growing arsenal of Meatless Monday recipes. Farro Porcini Risotto with Parsley Walnut Pesto. Rich, hearty, aromatic and best of all, on the table in about 30 minutes. This just moved to the top of my rotation.

I added a little shortcut to this already simple recipe from Martha Stewart, https://www.marthastewart.com/312975/farro-and-porcini-risotto, by using 1/2 jar of  Trader Joe’s Pesto Alla Genovese with the parsley and toasted walnuts and an additional splash of olive oil. The weekend’s here, why wait till Monday.

Power breakfast

May 30, 2013

There is no better way to start a summer morning than with this simplequietmodern power breakfast. And, it couldn’t be easier. Hard boiled egg whites and avocado cut into chunks…some coarse black pepper, coarse salt and a squeeze of lemon juice. Really, that’s it. If you’d still rather have a donut with your morning Joe, then offset it with this as a healthy lunch. One Hass avocado and two hard-boiled eggs will serve two with no cholesterol and monounsaturated good fat that may actually lower your blood cholesterol levels. Powerful stuff, huh?egg_avac5FeWhts2Faavac_eggWht_pepprF
