Here we are very limited with ingredients to what is in season. However, there are always tomatoes, onions, green pepper (bell), carrots, cabbage, and (irish) potatoes. Those never fail me. So I have learned to get creative! I have also started to just make things that I wish I could go to the store and buy. I want to share the recipes with you of two things that I am really loving to make right now.
One thing that I like to make and Colin LOVES to eat are flour tortillas.
|I think it is wise to pull them apart just so when you put them in the water they don't stick.|
|These noodles were going into a soup so I cut them into small pieces. You can leave them as long as you like.|
|And then into the soup pot they went! Along with the old faithfuls, tomatoes, carrots, green peppers, onions, and tomatoes!|
They don't take near as long to cook, so just a few minutes in a boil and they are done.
I want to challenge y'all this week. If time allows of course, to try and cook most of your meals from scratch. Or at least a part of them. Try and use lots of veggies. Try and make your own tortillas or noodles. (If you make noodles, please oh please someone eat it with some pesto for me!)
If you do, let me know so I can vicariously enjoy some pesto. And if you find a fun new way to use these items, PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I am always looking for new things to cook with the same ingredients.
