Food Resolutions - Or Not
January is the time of making resolutions... losing weight and saving money are usually at the top of most lists. Personally, over the years I've rejected making New Year's resolutions, since I, more often than not, fall off the wagon way before January turns into February and my personal failures depress me. So this year, my ONE resolution is to do what I can in moderation.
Oatmeal Pecan Blueberry Muffins fit the bill. They're made with oats, whole wheat flour, oat bran and pecans for much needed fibre. Blueberries add that magical antioxidant to the mix. The hardest part is to eat just one!
Frittatas and Scrambles are a perfect breakfast/brunch/lunch/supper option. This time it was filled with smoked chorizo and roasted vegetables left over from pre-New Year's Eve brunch with the family.
Tangy Spicy Shrimp Chorizo Pasta I made a while back) Tonight...I think will be, either, a take on a Nigella Lawson recipe for Linguine with Lemon, Garlic, Thyme & Mushrooms that I found while wandering the web, or Gemelli with Roasted Cauliflower, Tomatoes & Bread Crumbs (from that whole wheat baguette I'm turning into garlic croutons) from The Lazy Gourmet.
Speaking of pasta... don't you love my segue.... It's my turn to host the first Presto Pasta Night Roundup of 2012 this Friday!!! Please send all your fantastic choices our way. Just write... link to Presto Pasta Nights and Once Upon a Feast ... and send me your link via email ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by Thursday night.
