Still eating and cooking over here (crafting will resume in September, I promise!!!)
The garden has been overflowing with squash of all kinds including these beautiful white patty pans. I wasn't quite sure what to do with them so I made some roasted patty pan squash soup (tutorial to follow later in the week)
I extracted the seeds and roasted them and added some cayenne which gave them a smokey, spicy flavor atop the soup.
We had a friend over for dinner and as an appetizer, I made these broccoli Parmesan fritters.
My husband made homemade semolina pasta and we used the pesto that a friend of mine made for my birthday. So fresh and delicious!
It's been 8 days since I've gone gluten-free, but my last hurrah was this leek bread pudding, also from smitten kitchen.
And finally, these sweet and smoky short ribs from smitten kitchen. I have to say that these were not only the most delicious ribs I've ever made, but they were also the easiest to make as they're slow cooked. The oven does all the labor! I will definitely be making these again!
