Yesterday was the first time in months that I haven’t posted on my usually Monday through Friday schedule. Sure, I could have posted a Wordless Wednesday photo or pointed out a recent article. But my words and ideas just wouldn’t come. I was spent, and needed a day off. I hope you understand.
Now, let’s get to the food, shall we?
Last week when I was doing our meal plan, I decided it was high time to try cooking orzo. My kids love pasta, and I love trying new things. So yes, orzo is a pasta — a tiny rice-shaped pasta that cooks up in about eight minutes. Easy peasy. This week, we have eaten it like pasta (which was just ok) and also in this fab salad.
I love the way the crunchy sugar snap peas and sweet carrots taste when combined with the sesame flavor. Serve it chilled … it’s best that way.
What new food have you tried making lately?
