Recipe Monday!

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!

Much love,
