In honor of my new job I finally got myself a Kindle Fire. I even managed to order it on Fat Tuesday so I got my indulgence in right before Lent started.
My first book purchase? "To The Nines." Yes, another Stephanie Plum book. Not really a literary masterpiece maybe, but always entertaining.
I love how you can look just about anything up on the Internet such as "can I read my Kindle in the bathtub" and you find tons of people out there with your same concern and with their own experiences and solutions.
Thanks to the Internet, my Kindle Fire was used in the tub safely in a Zip lock.
This week was week 5 of my CSA subscription. My most favorite thing in there is actually the Burdock Root. I don't even have a recipe for it, I tend to use it in stir-fries.
There was no cabbage in this box (phew) but I did get a lot of greens, carrots, onions, fennel, cauliflower, and other items.
I roasted up the Cauliflower, some carrots, and another bag of shallots from last week and tossed with a double batch of Lemon Tahini Sauce. It came out wonderful. This is a dish I am very familiar with and always enjoy. The shallots added some bite, but I found them good.
This week also included fennel which was much harder for me to deal with. I am not a huge fan of fennel flavor or smell. I settled on this Carrot and Fennel recipe and it is OK. The problem is definitely me. I will say that roasting down the fennel and adding Almond Milk definitely mutes the anise flavor.
And finally. Enjoy these stages of snuggling photos...
