On Our Table This Week

Happy summer! This week, I tried to incorporate summer into our dishes as much as possible. Fig was a big fan of the Mint Spring Pasta, Mango Tacos and the Baked Rutabega Wedges with a Cashew Hummus ( I did not expect those to be such a hit!). He also ate his Watermelon Salad up quite nicely, not noticing the tomatoes until it was too late (incognito veggies strike again!)

We also had a few Lebanese dishes since it reminds my husband of home and I’ve vowed to incorporate more traditional foods into our family’s food culture. There were beautiful eggplants at the farmers market and I had to snag a few for a delicious Lebanese dish which highlighted their flavor.

For breakfast, we typically have oatmeal and fruit. This week we also had a few bran muffins, Ricotta Buckwheat Pancakes and homemade granola, all of which were eaten with gusto.

So without further delay: here is another edition of On Our Table This Week.

    Heya just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same

    I know these posts are from way back, but wow! I would love to be eating at your place! Such delicious spreads every day…reminds me of the care my mom always put into the food we ate at home. After I moved away from home I feel such a tenderness in my heart remembering her attention to seasonal ingredients, presentation, she always went a step above…I am sure your boys will remember this with a lot of love and affection 🙂
