First thing (7AM) this morning, I started the laundry and clothes were on the deck drying racks within the hour. By 9:30, the second load was going out and we were off to Costco. Lots of people are without power due to the overnight storms so, we were feeling really fortunate to have it.
Arriving home, I started up the grill and had the onions, beets and zucchini in the metal roasting pan outside. same effect as Kabobs without all the hassle of trying to skewer the veggies.
Made a spark recipe with some added Chelsea touches because that is what I do. The fennel and potato soup was made in a crock pot with homemade veggie broth instead of bouillon and I added in fresh, chopped leeks & fresh herbs. My husband came into the kitchen as the grilled veggies sat on the stove and I was distributing the soup into containers to freeze. "Potato soup ... can I have some and I'll put some of this (grilled veggies) in it too." His only comment was .... needs more pepper.
Sauteed some cabbage and made the mushroom ragout which was simply divine. Then made a salad with the rest of the mix we had from this week's CSA and cole slaw.
Since I am not a mayonnaise fan which in this heat is probably a good thing, my dressing comes out a bit sweet and sour. olive oil, vinegar with ginger, horseradish, honey and some fresh ground pepper and sea salt.
