Normally, at this point, I’d be writing about a recipe that I made last week that really blew my mind. Unfortunately, as J was out on a business trip to Japan, I didn’t make much of anything. So…my recipe would probably go something like this: Pick up my iPhone, find the number to Ru-Yi Chinese take-out, call in order, go pick it up. Yeah…more like a recipe for delicious food, water retention from sodium overload, and higher numbers on the scale.
So, I decided that instead of writing up about that, I’d write a post on a recipe that I want to make this week! I’ll definitely come back later in the week with a review once I make it (and hopefully remember to take photos), but this way I can give you a little preview of what is to come! I’ve been craving spring food. The weather here has been atrocious lately. This is coming from a girl who LOVES winter and all it has to offer, and I’m even over it. So, because of that, I wanted to make something that reminds me of the spring. I came across a food blog that has tons of recipes that I can’t wait to try, and this one really caught my eye! Spring Pea and Asparagus Pasta! YUMMY! I absolutely love peas, and asparagus is also another favorite vegetable, so I thought this would be right up my flavor alley. Plus, we don’t really allow ourselves much pasta, but every so often it’s a nice treat. We haven’t had it in a while, and I think it’s time to bring it back into rotation.
I’ll have to let you know how it goes! I might make it for dinner tonight. We recently signed up for a produce delivery program where every Tuesday we get a big box of fresh produce that is all local and all in season. That will come tomorrow, so I’ll line up meals for Tuesday through Monday using those ingredients, once I get an idea of what all we’ll get. But…we don’t have any from last week, since I put the delivery on hold knowing J would be out-of-town (hence the take-out). So…I’ll add the ingredients to my list for the grocery run, and hopefully we can have a delicious (and nutritious) meal tonight!
