Anyway, as I walked to the mailbox today, I saw several squirrels scampering about, searching for food (generally acorns around here), and it reminded me of several things, but mostly that I love food. :) I've had some fun lately in my tiny kitchen:
First, we had a German counselor this summer, and she LOVES potatoes. She made us some Bratkartoffeln one day, and they were soooooo good! I decided to try to make some, so, not having internet at my house, I made up a recipe. They turned out awesome, and when I looked them up online later, I was actually very close!
I added a dollop of sour cream, and ate WAY too much! If you're going to make them, I suggest slightly smaller chunks of potato...
Mom & Dad have started growing heirloom tomatoes, and gave me a few.
I decided that I needed to make something, and settled on Marinara sauce. I have no recipe for it, so I made it up.
The green tomatoes (yes, they're ripe. I don't know the variety, but they're the ones that are green with yellow stripes) made the sauce look a bit sickly, but it was tasty! I also baked some Italian Herb Bread that day.
I decided that the two must meet, so I whipped out the George Foreman Grill for some nummy grilled cheese sandwiches - with sharp cheddar cheese.
When all of the ingredients were compiled, it was exquisite!
(See what I mean about the way it looked? But trust me, it was heaven!)
