This week however, I did manage to triumph with some homemade cooking - albeit quite simple fare.
Last night, we had some spaghetti with homemade tomato sauce. My super cool friend Jane is a farmer who grows the most stunning organic tomatoes. They are unlike any other tomatoes in the world! Last year she gave us a jar of cooked up tomatoes and they were SO good that this year we bought a bunch of jars to last us into the winter. So, I broke one open and made some super, super delicious and simple tomato sauce with basil, garlic, salt, and a touch of olive oil. Yum! Big Paw brand Balsamic Vinegar and Porcini Olive Oil. I was never a fan of vinegar until I tried the stuff Big Paw makes. IT IS INSANE! So good! Look for those goodies to make an appearance in upcoming recipes.
Tonight, we made burritos! Simple, tasty, and quick. I bought some big, yummy tortillas by "Indian Life" brand at our health food store to make our burritos extra special. For the refries, I just dump out a can of low-sodium refries, add about 1 T of cumin, and about 1/2 - 3/4 c. of salsa, and cook up until warm. Then we put salsa, lettuce, tomato (from our garden!), hemp seeds, and avocado on. yum yum yum.
