This recipe was fantastic!

Cut veggies into chunks. Use any mix of veggies you like! I used the following:
--1 small head cauliflower
--1 red pepper
--1 yellow pepper
--6 baby yukon gold potatoes
--2 zuchinni
--8 oz button mushrooms
--4-5 green onions


Puree in blender:
--3-4 sun dried tomatoes (rehydrated in water) I put in small dish and barely covered with water and let them rehydrate then dumped all of it in the blender.
--3-4 fresh basil leaves
--3-4 fresh sage leaves
--sprig (minus stem) rosemary
--3 garlic cloves, finely chopped or grated
--2-3 Tbps low sodium soy sauce
--1/3-1/2 c grapeseed oil
--pinch cayenne pepper
--sea salt to taste (I salted when took out of oven)

You can add any fresh herbs you prefer. The original recipe called for thyme, but I used sage and rosemary instead (because that's what I had on hand).

Toss veggies with Slurry/Marinade.

Spread evenly on baking pan. Bake 35-40 minutes at 425 until veggies begin to brown.

Catching Up!

I know I've been away for awhile, and I'm not sure when I'll return to regular posts, but I thought I'd share a few photos from the past month.

January Photos

A few photos from January.

I cleaned and organized the pantry, including my large assortment of teas I didn't realize we had this much because it was all pushed back into a corner, lol.

Jim made 3 different soups.  This was the base for one of them.

We discovered this new pica de gallo recipe that we love and it's great mixed with avocados for guacamole.  I'll include the recipe in a later post!

I baked chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Recipe here!

My nephew spent the weekend with us.  He's a great kid.

Favorite 2012 Photo

I took thousands of photos during 2012.  This one is by far my favorite.  I just love it.

My daughter on her wedding day.

I decided to enter it into Rock The Shot's January photo competition.  What the heck, right?
