Lazy Rainy Sundays
We had little boys and their parents for lunch after a morning of hanging out with Dov, the two year old, but I still had time to whip up pot of soup and matzo balls. Not just any soup or just any matzo balls, for that matter.
I roasted some carrots, parsnips, leeks & beets with some sprigs of fresh thyme ... sort of like the ones above....
used some frozen roasted vegetable broth I always have on hand, and pureed it to look something like this. I just love the color the beets bring to the dish.
velvety squash soup... like these. They turned red too.
Fattoush - a great Middle Eastern Salad my family loves.
And that was just lunch. After a delightful afternoon with two angels, I have to admit, the thought of really cooking, didn't appeal... that lazy, rainy Sunday thing. What that usually means at our house is pasta. This time an easy take on a standard... pasta with sausages (this time lamb), mushrooms and a tomato sauce, which I used Classico pasta sauce as a base and added garlic, onion to make it "my own".
What's your favorite lazy, rainy Sunday story? If it includes pasta, I hope you share that too. It's my turn to host Presto Pasta Night Roundup this week and I can't wait for you to share. Just write about it, mention Presto Pasta Nights and email me the link. Just send it to ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by Thursday. If you don't have a blog, just email the recipe to me and I'll post it for you. .
