In this post, you can see what we’ve been eating lately, with recipe links and explanations under each photo. We’ve had some favorites on repeat (like halibut, salmon cakes, spinach quiche, broccoli kale slaw, and maybe too much swordfish), but the vegetables and fruit are always in major rotation. I tend to make extras also– intentional leftovers– so there are more to mix and match for other meals, spreading out the effort.
I hope this post gives you some ideas of what to make this season for you and yours.
Also shown below are a few of my experiments that are not quite blog-worthy yet, but you can see in what direction I’ve been creating with my food.
I enjoy making a beautiful mixture of colors and textures in each meal, and love playing with my dishes too, as I seem to eat with my eyes as much as anything. Many of these dishes are on pottery I made and carved myself. Hopefully this summer or fall I’ll be back to making more. Photography is harder in the winter, so I’m looking forward to more natural light coming in the spring.
If you are restless and bored with your cooking, try something new– a new recipe, a new combination on a plate, even just a different plate. I keep changing things up (even when I’m rotating favorites) and it helps keep me engaged, and content to make the next meal. Get creative! Cooking need not be dull. Each meal can be a joyous, vibrant occasion.
Wow! I am inspired to cook now. Made your mother’s macaroni and cheese last night and it was wonderful.
The cauliflower leek gratin is now a firm favourite – simple and oh so tasty! Thank you Polly
