When the perfect recipe lands in your inbox and you have all the ingredients, you head to your kitchen. Meet Nigella Lawson’s Moonblush Tomatoes. I used fresh thyme as I had it on hand and it calls for Maldon Salt which is worth the splurge.
Sweet dreams wee ones. See you in the morning!
Good Morning Moonblush Tomatoes.
Nigella’s Moonblush Tomatoes = super simple linguine. Five ingredients – tomatoes, linguine, evoo, fresh thyme and parmesan cheese. Super simple and absolutely delicious.
I love Shrimp. It is super simple to cook making it a simple weekday meal option. If you are looking for a new recipe, try this Spicy Shrimp one from the Eat Yourself Skinny blog. Since I watch my sodium content when cooking, I used a lot less salt than the recipe called for but it didn’t lack any flavour because of all the other spices. Super simple to pull together and definitely delicious!
Basic Good Carbs Soup from the Eat Burn Sleep blog is perfect for these chilly late autumn days. I omitted the salt as the Knorr Vegetable Stock Pot had more than enough sodium, simmered for an hour, puréed and garnished with chives. Enjoying a bowl for lunch and freezing the rest for a simple weekday dinner.
How times and styles change. My mummi’s tiny wine glasses of decades gone by vs. my big ones of today. Essence by iittala from William Ashley. They are meant for red wine but practical me only wanted to buy one style of glasses. Mine are used for red, white and rose. I have champagne flutes for bubbles. I love the simplicity of the Essence line. Timeless Finnish design for everyday living.
This is the ultimate in simplicity for those days you are craving pasta but don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. Martha Stewart’s One Pot Pasta to the rescue.
I was never really a fan of beets until I had this amazing Arugula Salad with Roasted Beets, Squash & Shallots by Gwyneth Paltrow. I was happy to find the recipe online via Bare Beauty and have made it many times since. It is a go to salad for a friend of mine who luckily made it for a friend’s 50th birthday dinner. I loved the roasted beets so much that I now incorporate them regularly into my homemade meals. It truly was love at first beet.
My Saturday Blues Cocoa Chili Smoothie is a mix of frozen blueberries, a banana, flax seeds, hemp hearts and McCormick’s Cocoa Chili Blend Spice. Blend and Serve. Enjoy!
