It sure would be nice to have The Brady Bunch’s Alice around today. This mound of dishes defies gravity. Yes I know, I should have cleaned up as I went along. I didn’t. Now I’m paying the price.
Cooking up a storm – two of the Martha Marley Spoon meals, plus a batch of my mom’s famous potato salad that I keep test-tasting to make sure it’s still as good as I remember as a child (yes)..I’ve roasted a mound of veggies, and I’m making the third and final MS recipe, Celery Fennel and Quinoa salad. The quinoa is cooking right now 18-20 min. It’s topped with fried chickpeas cooked in cumin and roughly chopped almonds. One of us will love this. One of us will not. 🙂
In between, we’ve hung the new flag – this time on the house, right outside my office window so I can see it all day. Before it was on a tree in the front of the house where there wasn’t a clear view – why put up a flag only for others to enjoy?
Had Wimbledon tennis on but it was rained out. Watched some of the news and scanned Twitter to see that the world is still in one piece. And Hillary still won’t get indicted.
BUT, the newly remastered Queen Mary 2 came into NYC (actually Brooklyn) this morning, posting on Instagram this sensational photo.
Rain about to come down big time. The sky is pitch black so I’m going to run and bring the flag in. Happy Friday JULY FIRST!!!!!
Quinoa celery chickpea salad amazing!! The flavors are to die for. The chickpeas got fried in cumin until crunchy toasty then the cooked red quinoa went into that pan for the quinoa to pop. The dressing was shallots, fennel, and celery in an olive oil and Dijon mustard dressing. Salad topped with crumbled Feta and chopped almonds. Mmmm.
Dishes are done and so am I. Feet up time……aaah.
