Thursday's Dinner

I did say it was the week of cleaning out the fridge............................. Orecchiette Pasta with a sauce of fresh peas, edamame, sauteed yellow onions, applewood bacon and mascarpone cheese - I love how the little peas and edamame sat in the pasta, all cozy. Dessert was slightly broiled apricots filled with the wonderful leftover Caramel Salted ice cream!!!

Wednesday's Dinner

Chilli Rellenos (baked & not breaded) stuffed with shallots, zucchini, mild sweet peppers & jack cheese served on a Chipotle sauce made with fresh tomatoes & yellow onions and Chipotles! Had to cheat on Dessert and find out what all the range was with Salted caramel ice cream - fantastic!!!

This week is called ..... cleaning out the fridge!

Risotto with sauteed shallots, asparagus, shitake mushrooms and arugula (this was an afterthought .. when I decided I did not want to make a salad - added a nice zip to the dish). Finished off with zest of meyer lemon (love love love them). Apricots, which were warmed in the broiler and then I filled them Mascarpone cheese & then I drizzled with warm Lavender Honey.
