Yesterday I finally did the thing I've been saying I want to do more of and it resulted in about 5 (more?) hours in the kitchen and at least that many loads of dishes. We've been eating out too much since the wedding, especially at work (for me). I knew I just needed a good Sunday of grocery shopping and food prep to break the habit. I started with a very simple hummus recipe that will be used as part of lunches this week. I have to say...generally I feel like anything made in the kitchen can be made without electrics, but for hummus nothing beats the (full sized) food processor. MAGIC.
Also made: chopped fresh vegetables for dipping, spring roasted vegetables to go with last night's dinner, and rye shortcakes with roasted rhubarb and strawberries from this Food52 recipe. It was delicious and this morning I crumbled a rye biscuit over my Greek yogurt and added a few strawberries. Also delicious and much healthier than the scone or muffin I would have otherwise bought from the café down the street.
