Facebook, Everyday Food, and Bologneses

Today was finally the glorious, breezy, low humidity,low heat summer day we have all been craving. I used bits and pieces of twigs that looked like little trees and placed them among my flower pots. There are little chipmunks running hither and thither, but not hurting anything.

Miracle Gro dirt and good watering is making my modest garden thrive. The petunias glow in the early morning, and the basil has hot up overnight. I used it to cook a thai dish I saw on Everyday Food this weekend. I also used it my own spaghetti sauce and other dishes. Our tomatoes are majestic this year, and loaded with blossoms. I look forward to them and to our pumpkins.

Tonight, I made the EF recipe for bolognese sauce. Sauteed carrots, onions, spices, oregano, in olive oil, chicken broth, 1/4c milk, ground turkey, cabernet sauvignon, and dried vegetable flakes. I improvised a little, but it was wonderful. To the tomato paste I added a can of diced tomatoes with onions. It was excellent over angel hair pasta. I also made their round turkey meatloaf with cremini mushrooms and fontina cheese.

One night, I used my fish stock from the baked salmon, added a rue, frozen seafood mix, cabernet sauvignon, and about 1/4 jar Barilla vegerarian marinara. It was a great seafood bisque made from stock and leftovers!

My tip: An oldie but goodie; if you have plastic rings from coke cans, cut them up; this way, if they end up in a landfill, a bird looking for food won't strangle. Live well and Live green.

Till next time.
