Polenta for Breakfast

Avril made an updated version of what she had as a child, "fried mush." We had polenta last night as a side dish with chicken. The leftover was spread in a square dish and refrigerated. Today she cut the solid polenta and sautéed in olive oil and butter. When caramelized she plated, the now soft center polenta, with a honey drizzle and chiffonade of basil. Breakfast is served!

Pho Ramen Mash Up

It is pouring rain and the skies are grey. This is a soup day if there ever was one. I scoured the pantry and came across a packet of Pho broth mix that I had purchased many moons ago. There is always some ramen noodles hanging out, so I put the two together with some roast beef, basil, lime and left over veg. Yummy!

Field Roast Grain Meat Taco
My son is now committed to a meat free diet. He made these tacos from Field Roast Mexican Chipotle Grain Meat. Damn good food!

New Years Toast!

This time of year we tend to hibernate. We have made resolutions to eat healthier and not spend money like we had a lot. With those resolutions in mind Avril made bread and I butchered avocado for this delicious toast.
