It is that time of year when things start to get a little cray-cray. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and then there is no stopping Christmas and all of the many holiday events. Throw in a little year-end business and a few bouts of bad weather, and before we know it 2014 will be done.
Before I get caught up in that whirlwind, maybe I should do another South Dakota Magazine Recap. I have shared several recipes (and a few stories) online with South Dakota Magazine since my last update in early April.
Ham and Asparagus Lasagna is a perfectly elegant comfort food worthy of a Spring holiday table.
Sausage and Feta Tacos. The day is a celebration of a Mexican military victory and more than just party with "2 for 1" margarita deals.
Asparagus Ravioli in Parmesan Broth.
Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Bars was uneventful...and the bars were delicious.
Lemon Butter Fish.
Avocado Toast with Radish Salad pulls from produce both local, and not. Sourcing my food from whatever origins are available for the tastiest options is my "diet" plan.
Spinach and Garlic Vinaigrette Salads.
Peanut and Cucumber Salad.
Bleu Cheese and Bacon Potato Salad is on the menu.
Scrambled Eggs with Pesto and White Beans is a powerhouse for breakfast and an excellent place to start while working toward those big dreams for the day.
Dutch Baby with Caramel Sauce and Bananas.
Pomegranate and Popcorn.
Pumpkin Black Bean Soup is a perfect fall bowl of comfort. Topping this rich, savory soup with crumbled queso and sliced green onions enhance the earthy flavors.
Homemade Cranberry Sauce, even though I kinda miss the nostalgia of those perfect rings on the log of sauce from the can.
Whew. What a list of amazing recipes! I hope you have had the opportunity to enjoy a few, and I can't wait to share more On My Plate and with South Dakota Magazine.
