Radish Dip

This is a recipe adapted from the newsletter from my CSA, Spiral Path.

Greek yogurt
Sour cream
Parsley (dried or fresh)
Onion - diced
Radishes - diced

If I had to put proportions to this ... 2/3 cup yogurt, 1/3 cup sour cream, 2-3 t parsley, 1/2 cup minced onion, 1 cup minced radishes, and salt & pepper to taste.

The original recipe calls for 8 oz cream cheese instead of the yogurt and sour cream. I didn't have cream cheese. I'll try it with that next time.

I Did It!

This past week, I resigned my day job as of April 30, 2012. I'm not sure what I'll do come May 1st, but surely it will involve food!

Food is Always Better with Friends

Helen joined us for dinner tonight. I always produce a yummier meal when I prepare for others.

Kofta Kabobs with grilled tomatoes, onions, and pita, topped with tzatziki.

Palak Chawal

Pumpkin Kaddo

For dessert, I put out some won ton wrappers, topped some with fig and some with apricot preserves and I added goat cheese to a few. I brushed egg around the edges and topped with another won ton. I used some cookie cutters to make cute shapes then fried for a few minutes on each side. After they cooled a little on paper towels, I sprinkled them with confectioner's sugar and served with ice cream. Yum!
