Cheesy Goodness

The burrata from the farmshare a few weeks ago was delicious on tomatoes with dried basil, salt, and pepper sprinkled on top. Burrata is mozzerella-textured on the outside, and creamy on the inside, so the mix of textures lent itself well to the crunch of the tomato and the pop of the seasonings.

Breakfast for Dinner

Italian sausage, fried eggs, callalloo fried with bacon, zucchini.

Paleo Fried Food

There are some people who would be offended by the title. After all, one of the big concepts of paleo is to avoid the cooking methods and materials that make southern fried dinners possible.  And corn does not fit into the paleo diet. However, farm fresh corn from the CSA should not go to waste. So we were flexible, as we often are about our diet, and Nicole wanted fried chicken. 

There is no picture of the corn, because this was made on the hottest day of the heat wave, and the second it was done, we retreated into the air conditioned bedroom with the tray of fried things and a plate of corn, butter, and salt. This is also the reason there is no fancy plated dish photo.

On the left is fried zucchini from the farmshare, and fried green beans. On the right is fried chicken. Everything was egg-washed, covered in spiced coconut flour, and fried in coconut oil. Nom, nom, nom.

We spent the last week and a half using pea tendrils in everything. They are delicious, both raw and cooked, but by the end of the second bag we were getting pretty creative.

Enter this quick but delicious breakfast:
