What's shakin' this week at WGG.
Oh butter. It seriously makes everything taste so good. At our house, butter is almost a food group unto itself.
It seems like weekends are perfect for five minute dinners. No fuss, little clean up, and grub on the table before your hungry mouths start contemplating take-out. One such meal is the homemade Sloppy Joe.
If you haven’t cooked with farro yet, you’re going to fall in love this this yummy whole grain. To describe the consistency, imagine brown rice mating with wheat berry. The love child of their torrid affair would be farro.
If there is one week of the year to chug Jameson and chase leprechauns (or both?) -- this is it. St. Patrick’s Day is this Saturday so here is a recipe to help you get into the spirit.
Isn't it pretty? It's a delicious lunch you'll love that literally took me 10 minutes to get from fridge to my mouth. Here's how...
With the ides of March right around the corner, I thought it was appropriate to share one of my old standby recipes: the Caesar salad. While it’s easy to chuck a ready-made bagged salad on the table and bark, “Diiiiiinnnnnner!” to your family, I promise if you take the extra time to make your own dressing and croutons and use good Romaine, you (and whoever else you’re serving) will be happy.
We didn't mean for our picture of the gold beets that will be in the box this week to be so Saint Paddy's day themed, but will ya look at that! We don't have corned beef but we do have what you might want to cook up for sides. Some beautiful red potatoes, leeks, cabbage, sweet onions, those gorgeous gold beets and more. If there is something you would like that you don't see on our list, just send Zeke an email and we'll see if we can rummage it up for you.
I figure that if the majority of this blogs' reader's are cooking from the box or are at least seeking out recipes that would be on our page, you're pretty terrific eaters to begin with. Yeah, there is that stretch between Halloween and New Years Day that makes us end up setting crazy, hardcore resolutions or goals (so how is everybody doing with THIS year's resolutions?) when we wake up from our food comas. But in general I would deign this salad more of a weekly fix of crunchy chewy deliciousness.
Is there anything better than fresh squeezed citrus? We took all the oranges, grapefruits, and mandarins that were kicking around our fruit drawer and made a citrus medley fit for the gods.
