Weekend Fun and Food

On Friday, we got another CSA box. Here is what we got:

  • Apples
  • Strawberries
  • Grapefruit
  • Oranges
  • Zucchini
  • Broccoli
  • Fava beans – I got introduced to cooking fava beans last year when they showed up in my CSA box. After doing some research, I learned that they have to be peeled twice. That’s what I did, and they turned out great. I’ll use my fava bean recipe from last year to prepare these.
  • Peppers
  • Potatoes
  • Cilantro
  • Lettuce
On Saturday evening, we attended a wedding of one of hubby’s cousins. It was a beautiful wedding with lots of room for the toddler to run around; he seemed to have a never-ending amount of energy that night... The only problem was that it was an outdoor wedding, and it was quite chilly. I’m really glad hubby convinced me to wear my coat over my dress. I ended up never taking the coat off, and I was still cold all night…

I indulged in a bit too much food at the wedding, so I wanted something fresh and healthy for lunch on Sunday. I made a simple TLC (Tomato/lentil/cilantro) salad.

TLC (Tomato/Lentil/Cilantro) Salad

  • Cooked lentils
  • Grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • Cilantro
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Lots of lemon juice
Mix all ingredients and enjoy!
