A Noisy Rabbit Dinner

We made an almost full The Noisy Rabbit (tnr) dinner tonight. I wanted to use the apricots so I started throwing stuff in a iron pan to stick in the oven. What came out was really good – the kiddos asked for a third helping. There are no measurements, sorry, but here is what I threw in:

Chicken breasts
A few springs of rosemary from my neighbors’ garden
Apricot halves (tnr)
blueberries (tnr)
Orange juice (from last weeks oranges – tnr)

Coconut oil
sea salt
pepper

* cooked it in the oven then finished the chicken on the grill.

Fruit for a side:
strawberries (tnr)
blueberries (tnr)
apricots (tnr)
cucumbers (tnr)
roasted coconut (tnr)
cherries (tnr)
OJ (tnr)
1/2 tps of sugar
little bit of coconut oil
chia seeds
flax seeds

Veggie for side(s):
salad = lettuce (tnr) + spinach (tnr) shredded cheese
roasted broc and yel squash (both tnr)

= health meal and happy folks. 🙂

Cool Summer Salad –

From my garden – 2 zucchini, chives, cilantro

From this week’s basket – 1 squash, 2 tomato, 1 cucumber, lime
From last week’s basket – 2 Red pepper
From pantry – salt and pepper

Dice all the veggies, finely chop herbs, combine and toss thoroughly. Squeeze lime to keep it fresh. Salt and pepper to taste.

Makes a huge amount of salad.

And I use it so many ways:
Italian dressing for some of it, ranch(dressing and powder) in another part, another section will be roasted on the grill, another warmed portion will be added to pasta as the sauce, and cold with pasta and more italian dressing for pasta salad.

Its the bomb.

Asian Noodle Salad

All time favorite Asian salad… often I don’t even put the noodles…I just make the salad from all the yummy veggies! the sesame oil, fresh ginger and jalapeños bring such amazing flavor to the veggies!!

Giardinera

Email from a member:

If there are members who still have cauliflower, they can make giardinera. All of the ingredients came in one basket with the exception of the banana pepper. Cauliflower, onion, Carrot, celery, red peppers, cucumber, banana peppers, enough white vinegar diluted slightly with water to cover veggies in jar, and sea salt! Pack cut veggies in jar. Boil vinegar water and salt. Cool slightly and pour over veggies. Process for storage or cool completely and refrigerate to enjoy now
