So, the problem with me blogging a day or two after making something is that I'm too tired to actually type up the recipes. I'm sorry.
On Saturday, I made an early V-day gift for my spouse (who hates chocolate) - key lime bars from last month's Taste of Home cookbook. It's got a crust of vanilla wafers and nuts and butter, a first layer of cream cheese and sugar (and I added the zest of the limes), and then an egg/lime juice layer. Very tasty, but could be a bit tarter. I can't imagine what it would have been without the lime zest (which wasn't called for in the recipe).
Last night we had soup and rolls. I was going to make Split Pea Soup, but had a bit of food poisoning or something from a bad burrito on Friday night. Or maybe I just have a sensitive stomach. But really, I generally have an iron stomach. Instead I opted to make the rolls using the bread machine recipe and open up a carton of Imagine garden tomato soup (low sodium). With kale chips.
Tonight I roasted a bunch of veggies...fennel, beets, brussels sprouts, and onions (can you guess what we got from the CSA?) Turns out, my kid doesn't like fennel either. Hub and I don't care for it either. Served with rice pilaf from a box and frozen breaded chicken. A working mom's best friend.
