I’m back from a long weekend in Montana and ready to cook! Lotta produce coming your way again this week, along with a birthday cake for… me (yes, I make my own birthday cakes).
It’s a million degrees in Seattle and my CSA box has all sorts of summer squash. Grilled Zucchini Ribbons with White Beans and Pesto from Smitten Kitchen is on the menu tonight, accompanied with some grilled bread! I’ll be using the last of my garlic scape pesto that I made and froze last month in lieu of making a new batch as called for in the recipe.
I’ll be serving up Steak and Mashed Carrots with a Caprese Salad. Recipes to come!
Ending the week with Taco Friday 🤔 and these amazing Buffalo Cauliflower Tacos from Pinch of Yum. I’ve made them before and they are SO TASTY. I recommend you try them out this weekend with a nice marg to accompany them.
Birthday Cake pt. 1!
Trying to decide between one of these cakes for a birthday bbq:
- This Peaches and Cream Cake from Smitten Kitchen (my version will feature fewer bunnies, probably)
- Pink Lady Cake – ’tis berry season, after all
- Classic Funfetti Cake minus the box-mix taste
- Literally ANY of the cakes from the Brave Tart cookbook by Stella Parks
Go forth and enjoy summer produce while it’s here!
