I’m an absolute junkie when it comes to Pinterest. Not sure I’ve mentioned it here before, but I’m crazy about it. It’s a really, really fun way to kill time and learn to about cool stuff and there’s something for darned near everyone. Seriously … everyone. For instance, pretend for a second that you’re say … a basket weaving enthusiast. You adore all things basket woven – from hair braids to buttercream frosting, to hand knit blankets, or potholders, or throw rugs. Guess what? You can find each and every one of those basket woven things (and more, I checked) on Pinterest. It’s amazing. Truly.
I just love our Sendik’s customers. They are such a source of inspiration for demo’s and recipes. Crisse Merkel of Germantown passed along these recipes. I’ve made all three and they are great! Perfect for summer grilling and entertaining. Thanks Crisse!
I always seem to be at a loss for good vegetable sides dishes. Does this ever happen to you? Not quite sure why I’m uninspired – it’s not like I dislike vegetables or anything, I just get in a rut and end up serving the same dishes time after time – you know, the usual suspects: sautéed green beans, roasted asparagus, steamed broccoli, etcetera…. (big yawn) Happily, the great deals on produce this week inspired me right out of my rut, and I’m excited to share two very (non-boring) veggie recipes with you today!
