What I Did Today to Feel Proud

I cooked ahead for lunches today: roasted zucchini and red pepper, roasted some carrots with a little olive oil and Spices of Provence (rosemary, lavendar, and some others), cooked some fresh peas, and broiled chicken thighs with lemon & lime juice.

And tonight, though I'm not usually the one who cooks, I made an Italian bread salad -- toasted bread pieces, heirloom tomatoes, red pepper, kalamata olives, capers, with a dressing of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, fresh basil, garlic, and oregano. Leftovers for work tomorrow with a boiled egg and a big fresh peach.

The trick with cooking ahead is using what you cooked.

  1. The bread salad sounds yummy! I use fresh focaccia bread in mine, but I know that's not the traditional way of making it. I LOVE that your blogging now, btw!
