3 Things That Work in the Kitchen This Week – Plus what I’ve been reading and watching

Shares 1

Happy Memorial Day! Sending thanks to all the men and women who have served our country in the Armed Forces.

1.  A bit of a cooking break

I’ve been trying to test at least five new recipes each week for the cookbook.  This week I didn’t meet my goal at all.  Maybe I just needed a little break from it, but for some reason the cooking – at least the recipe testing part – just didn’t happen this week.

2. Using and giving freezer meals

I had about 10 meals stashed away in the freezer and the next chapter of the cookbook I’m working on is a freezer meal chapter.  This may have been why I was having a hard time doing any new cooking.  This week I gave away a few of the meals from my freezer.  I also used a couple of them for our dinners.

These are so handy to have!  If you’d like to see a freezer cooking session in action, check out my recent Facebook Live video.

3.  Simplified Detox Salad

We love this salad!  It makes a ton and does take some chopping, but it is so good!  I decided to throw this together quickly to go with sandwiches one night for dinner.  I used just broccoli, cauliflower and dried cherries, plus the simple dressing ingredients.

It still made a very large salad, but it was a little quicker and just as delicious!

Reading and Watching

I finished reading At Home in the World by Tsh Oxenreider (affiliate link).

I really enjoyed this book.  It’s great if you like to travel or if you like reading about places in the world.  I loved that she didn’t sugar coat what traveling with kids is like, but she also made it seem doable and very worth it.

In the book she explores the connection between home and wanderlust.  We usually see these two things as opposites, but the relationship between them is more intricate and interesting than that.

We recently started watching The Durrells in Corfu on Amazon.  I’m really liking this show.  The scenery alone makes it worth the watch, but it will also make you want to book a trip to Greece!  The story lines are fun and light hearted.  The family isn’t without their issues, but it isn’t dark like so many shows can be.

What’s cooking in your kitchen and what have you been reading and watching?
