I tried this salad for the first time in Cincinnati. I will admit I didn’t think I would like it. Something about the flavor profile didn’t strike me, but I was willing to give it a go! I live an adventurous life, right? No, not really, but I will try this. The feta, balsamic and the watermelon go so nice together. It’s a tangy sweet thing that it has going on. It was just perfect and so refreshing. By the end of the night, even my daughter was nibbling. I had to use this recipe for my picnic today.
I was in the mood for something cheesy yet a little healthy, this is healthy right? Hey if it’s not, I don’t want to know ok? I have to do what I have to do to get spinach into an 11yr old girl without pulling the stunts I did when I was little. We won’t go into that. Anyway yes, this is a daughter approved recipe! Noodles, ricotta cheese, spinach and a marinara sauce ..it’s vegetarian night here the easy way. I got 15 rolls out of this which made enough for 5 people.
I found an amazing deal on Cod at our local fish market which here is the grocery store..yes I’m deprived of an actual local seafood market, but this was a deal I could not pass up. First I made authentic fish and chips for my stepdad who is from England and to say the least misses his home town food as well. They have just moved to the area so I am quite sure he’s feeling it lol. I am doing my best though!
So tonight I got out the second batch of these delicious fillets and poached them in the most wonderful Thai broth I could muster and here is how I did it! You will need:
