Gooood morning! Today is a 180 degree difference from yesterday as the sun is shining and the sky is bright blue. I actually have nothing scheduled today and I’m not sure how I will spend this beautiful day. I do need to do some packing because we are leaving for the Cape tomorrow evening but right now, I’m sitting in bed munching on this. Arnold Double Protein Bread with Laughing Cow and 1/4 of a mashed avocado. It’s actually VERY delicious!!! Alright, onto this week’s share.
Another week, another batch of veggies! I think this week has been my favorite batch so far. We got a ton of corn, which I am soo excited about and a lot of tomatoes, my favorite!Hot peppers, bell peppers, and hand picked cherry tomatoes, (I washed them off after the pic)carrots, potatoes, eggplant, and an array of summer squash.Soo many different ingredients! I always use the corn, tomatoes, peppers, and a squash or two, but if I’m being honest, I was starting to have leftover veggies from the previous week’s share, and I REALLY didn’t want them to go to waste. So I decided to be proactive and cook a recipe that used as many veggies as possible. The result? Ratatouille!
This dish came out really delicious and it was a great use of vegetables. Of course, you can customize it based on your taste and what veggies you have on hand. I have been looking online and there are a number of ways to utilize the leftovers which I am sure to do since we have about 1/3 of a crock pot left. Traditionally, this recipe is used more as a side dish, or served over pasta and rice. I’m thinking I may throw it over some penne for tonight’s dinner. 🙂
Okay, time to get out of bed and get moving.
Enjoy the day!
