How are you guys doing today? I’ve been better, since you asked. I read somewhere once that you aren’t supposed to complain about things on your blog, which probably isn’t the worst advice. Complaining in general is usually rather unproductive (except that it isn’t if you really need to vent! Know what I’m sayin’?). Well anyways, my knee is jacked up (I don’t know why) and I found out I fractured my right thumb on our sailing trip when I ate it pushing the dinghy off the beach and into the water. I didn’t do anything about it until Monday of this week cuz I like to try to be tough about physical injuries to make up for the fact that I’m can be a total baby about emotional injuries (know what I’m sayin’?). Anyways, if there are typos from here on out I’m blaming it on this thumb injury. Fortunately, I can still surf. Maybe I’m not supposed to yet, but I probably will because I’m smart like that. No wonder this thing hasn’t healed. Anyways, here’s that recipe I mentioned in Thankful Things….
I saw something like it on the cover of a magazine sitting on the counter in the house I nanny and sort of adapted it to us. Because of that, I’m not totally sure about the measurements. I actually thought ours could have used a bit more sauce (Scott is crazy about the stuff). So, my advice is, take these measurements as a general suggestion (or follow the recipe from Real Simple Magazine linked below).
Serves: probably like 4 -6 people (we ate it for approximately 3 meals)
3 tablespoons of olive oil
2-3 cloves of garlic
1/2-1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves
4 ounces crumbled goat cheese or parmesan (I think I actually like the parmesan better, but the goat cheese is good and creamy and healthy!)
*Here’s the recipe from Real Simple magazine if you want to check that out (they ribbon their zucchini which is fancy).
p.s. our Le Creuset French Oven can be found here (which is an Amazon Associates link, so if you buy it I will get a small commission, which would be much appreciated!). We have it in “Caribbean” and use it often. It’s a bit pricey (we received ours as a wedding gift), but I do have to say that, besides the fact that I love cooking with it, I love the way it looks in our kitchen. I sort of see it as a very functional kitchen decoration (win, win!). Also, shout-out to the Parent family who gave us this awesome pot! Hey guys, thanks 🙂
