Fridays are the time that I share 5 things that I love right now in this moment. Today I want to share a little about my food obsession. Also as today is the first day of June we are starting our new theme with Little which is Food. We live in a very agriculturally rich area. Food and food politics have been part of my life since I can remember. I still tell Little every time we buy grapes that when I was a kid I never had grapes because well ‘No Uvas” Now I am still involved and concerned about the food we eat. I think that what we put in our bodies is extremely important. It can make us sick or it can make us healthy.
All that said I LOVE food. I love to eat, I love to cook, I just plain love food. There is no better way (in my world) to show someone you love them then by feeding them. So before I jet and make tonight’s dinner. I want to share with you some of my favorite foods for right now. If you follow me on pinterest these may look familiar 🙂 Click the pictures to take you to the original blog with the recipes and enjoy!
First up freezer meals. This lovely woman has posted the recipes and the shopping list. Bless her heart! They are all crock pot recipes making them super easy to have dinner on the table even during the most hectic day. I have a friend that is due with her 3rd child on Monday and while baby will come on its own time I am shopping and making these for her this weekend.
I know it is summer but I love soup all year round. I love soup all year round. I particularly love Mexican soup with lime and avocados in the summer. It is refreshing and for me it is comfort food. It reminds me of the 3 weeks I spent in Oaxaca (many years ago) visiting my aunt and cousin.
What could be more summery then salad? Plus these are convenient and just adorable. Again she gives you the shopping list and recipes and all of this can be prepared say Saturday after the market while Little is napping. This will give me yummy lunches (especially with the soup from above) for the whole week.
Speaking of salads. I am absolutely in love with Cobb Salad at the moment. Honestly what is not to love? I have had it 4 times in the last week!
Ok Martha knows her stuff! I made this the other week but witched out the raspberries for strawberries as I got but strawberries and rhubarb in my CSA box. When I was making it my hubby wrinkled his nose and said he didn’t like strawberry/ rhubarb deserts. Frankly that is just crazy talk! Yet some how half of the dish was missing when I sat down to it. humm? He told me later that it was AMAZING so there you go!
Happy eating! What foods are you loving right now?
