I don’t know if it’s the heat or the fact that I’m in desperate need of a vacation, but I have been completely unable to focus on anything this week. I sit down to write and I find myself staring at the screen for 20 minutes before throwing in the towel and spending an hour browsing Pinterest or Etsy instead. Yo summer, why do you make me so unproductive?
Here’s what I ate this week:
Leek & Olive Tart // If you don’t read Rikki Snyder’s blog, you need to start because her photographs are absolutely breathtaking. I omitted the Camembert and for some reason, I was unable to roll out my dough to the size required by the recipe, but this tart was a whole lotta savory amazingness.
Thai-Style Grilled Corn with Roasted Peanuts // I’m almost done rephotographing my old recipe posts! I did 3 this week, including this Thai corn recipe. There was local corn at the farmers market last weekend, which I was pretty thrilled about. Yes, I get thrilled about corn. AND?
Pizza Quinoa Casserole // If quinoa is a hard sell in your household, try this casserole. Surprisingly, it really does have the flavor of pizza. We had this 2 nights in a row with veggies on the side and it made a delicious, filling meal.
Chocolate Pomegranate Granola Bites // I swear, these cookies get better and better every time I make them. I only wish it was easier to find dried pomegranate seeds! Luckily just about any dried fruit will work in this recipe.
Spicy Cantaloupe Cucumber Salad // Is there any better summer side dish than fruit salad? I don’t think so.
