What a wonderful fall day. We went on a good old fashioned hay ride. I have hay on my bathroom floor from changing into my pj's tonight. It is falling out everywhere! Tuesday's dinner is a favorite of ours. It is from a cookbook titled, From the Kitchen of Two Sisters. They eat meat but the whole cookbook is only using vegetables and fruit because we just simply don't get enough of them. They feel we all know how to cook a piece of meat but need more recipes for vegetables as sides and main dishes. I also have a reminder for Wednesday that will have to be done before going to bed on Tuesday night.
Oriental Lemon-Honey Pasta
Cook 1 lb whole wheat spaghetti noodles according to pkg and drain
In a jar combine:
1 c olive oil
1/2 c lemon juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c braggs or soy sauce
2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
1/4 c warm honey
Add 1 cup of this to a skillet and saute 3 carrots julienne or sliced very thin for 5 minutes
Add 1 c mushrooms, sliced and 3-4 c broccoli florets and cook 5 minutes more
Toss now the remaining sauce, the vegetables in the skillet and the noodles, serve.
This recipe is so filling and makes enough for us 5 that we eat nothing else with it but maybe a slice of buttered bread.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Tomorrow's dinner is Pork & Beans so tonight you must soak your dry beans. Add 2-3 c dry pinto beans in a big pot. Add water, lots. They will soak it up and to much is okay they don't over soak (for lack of a better way to say it). In the morning you will drain them. See you in the morning! Good night!
