This Oscar evening turned into a couple hours of cooking up a storm in this kitchen. At times it was two chefs jockeying for a spot at the cutting board and spice rack, but we have come a long way in cooking together in one kitchen. On my agenda: Borscht Soup (In honor of Oscar Red), Cucumber Soup, and Salmon. On the hubby's agenda: Organic Whole Chicken Barbeque, Grass Fed Steak, and Steel Cut Oatmeal. In addition, I made a couple very colorful salads, packaged ingredients for Turkey/Cucumber/Tzatziki wraps and packed our bags full for lunches for a few days ths week.
Our new food scale, so when a recipe says 5 lbs of beets I can figure out what the mean~
|Cut the greens off, rinse and scrub
|Peel Boiled Beets. Notice I am wearing an (old) apron because beets bleed!
|Aren't they gorgeous!
|I had two soups going at one time, a first for me.
|My work space, looks chaotic in this snap, but you will see the recipe stand, cutting board and knifes which all get a lot of use these days.
|Hard to get an in pot action shot because of the steam.
|Serious Cook and Freeze Session in the works
|Lunches will be healthy this week ~ (The right is cucumber soup)
