We ate a lot of potatoes this week. A lot. I had a huge bag of Yukon Gold potatoes to use up, a Russet potato, and somehow we ended up buying three obscenely large bags of Alexia fries at BJ’s last weekend. But that’s okay, because I love potatoes. Love! Them!
Here’s what I ate this week:
Mystery Citrus Honey Murcott Tangerines // I bought these because they were adorable and cheap and now I don’t remember what they’re called. I think it was honey something? And after Googling, I found a fruit called honeybells, but they’re Minneolas and these definitely aren’t Minneolas. They’re easy to peel like clementines, but much smaller and more tart. WHAT ARE THESE?! [ETA: Mystery solved--I found out they're Honey Murcott Tangerines when I went back to Whole Foods this weekend.]
Pesto Potato Salad with Artichokes & Sun-Dried Tomatoes // We had this with tempeh. I made it when I was on my lunch break (love working from home!) so when dinner rolled around, all I had to do was cook the tempeh and dinner was ready.
Pepper Jack Potato Corn Cakes // I used fresh corn on the cob the last time I made these, but this time I used Trader Joe’s roasted corn, which worked really well. I’m not a big fan of frozen corn, but that roasted corn is actually sweet and flavorful and not mushy and bland.
Black Bean Burger with Sauteed Onions + Oven Fries with Balsamic Ketchup // Not only did we have a lot of fries and potatoes to use up, but we also had a boatload of ketchup in the fridge. Not that that’s a bad thing!
Vegan Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Mousse // This was my weekend treat. I swear, you would never know it’s made with tofu.
…and guess what? I am now more than halfway through my project of re-photographing my old recipe posts. I’m hoping to finish in May and then I’ll be able to cook more recipes from other sources again. So thanks for bearing with me as I replace all my crappy pictures and shamelessly promote the new ones in these posts.
