Veg Bad, entering the last week!


I'm taking the Veg Bad Challenge


I can't believe that next week will be the end of my 90 day Veg Bad challenge!!  It's amazing.  I must admit, when I have company, I did not do as well as I could, but over all, we have changed into a family that used to maybe throw a veggie into the mix if we remembered, to one that puts it as a priority in our shopping and eating adventures. I even saw Joel get a salad the other day with his lunch!

I'm going to share a recipe from Martha Stewart today.  I don't normally count corn as a stand alone vegetable, but this recipe is just too good to not share.  If you click on the title, it will take you to the web page so that you can see the picture of them.  They are oh so good.  We've had them twice already!



Grilled Corn Disks

from Martha Stewart Living, August 2005

Cut ears of corn into rounds about 1 inch thick, brush with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Cook on a medium-hot grill, cut sides down, about 2 minutes per side.




Summer is coming!  I think that I might just have to start a Veg Good challenge to contain all the fresh produce that will be hitting the market soon.  We canned and froze peaches last year.  I might have to broaden the repertoire this summer to enjoy the goodness all year long!

Have a recipe you want to share for the Veg Bad challenge? Link up below with the recipe as the name and your post link in the html.

Stories from the Kitchen: Taste and See

I celebrated my birthday last weekend. It was wonderful and the leftovers left me with a question or two. Find out what they are and how I'm currently answering them in this week's podcast.

Project 52: Shiver me dufuses

This date I pulled out a puzzle that I had bought for Joel years ago.  I put up a little camp table , and even devised a system to keep the pieces in place with some fabric, so we could roll it up and stow it.  I was all ready to go and then the reality of the puzzle set in and I realised, I don't like puzzles.  I was already frustrated and worn out by the darn thing and we were only a mere few minutes into working on it!  Instead of getting upset, we changed plans. The puzzle was abandoned and Joel went out for a shamrock shake from McD's and two cherry pies.  We played some MadLibs .  The one we bought for Hannah today was Pirate themed and the story that was the funniest included a peg elbow and a pet pencil sitting on your shoulder saying "Shiver me dufuses!" We even had a joke book that we'd picked up for Hannah and read a couple of terrible jokes to one another while shuffling cards for cribbage. A fun night full of laughter and green shakes.  Well, I&#

KAF No-Fuss Focaccia

I really like making bread.  It's fun to get your hands dirty, but I understand that yeast is a scary thing for people who don't have experience with it.  Somehow, I started using it when I was young and too immature to understand the fear that comes along with wasting time, money and energy.  I had time and energy in abundance.  My first real forte into baking was in the 7 th grade.  I must have cooked before then because I choose to see which flour rose the highest using a cinnamon roll recipe.  I made a lot of cinnamon rolls that year and when I turned in my report, there were questions asked of me that I had no idea what she meant.  Questions about the weather and the heat of the oven.  Things that I didn't know could make a difference in the baking of bread.  Lots has happened since that first memorable baking.  Today, I invited a friend over to make bread.  I was kind of concerned about the strength of the yeast, because we bought a huge stash of it last year someti
