My recipe catalog has been severely lacking for the summer months.
Hot sticky weather doesn't condone itself well to chaining oneself to an oven and religiously mincing vegetables for some over involved comestible. So most recipes I come across are either unappetizing due to the amount of work, the amount of food, or the weird crap they try to stick in just because well we got a ton of durian and damnit we're gonna use it!
I've been sampling various other food recipe magazines to see if I can find a good fit for us and while it's only one issue so far think I may have found a good one. It's called Eating Well and while I might argue with many of their pseudo-science articles I can't with tasty sounding food.
Last night I made a couscous (I adore couscous. It's the food of the greek gods.) parsley chicken wrap thing. Now my husband and I can pretend we're prisoners in the Village eating nothing buy wraps.
If you're curious about the recipe you can check it out here at Roots and Zest a somewhat new blog from a very awesome lady. It was she who suggested I try the Eating Well magazine.
Though you should really go read her blog because she's hilarious and has some tantalizing food posts. I cannot be held liable if your keyboard is destroyed from all the drool.
Now I'm off to try and figure out what I can make the other 6 days of the week. Maybe some kind of mud and rock stew.
