The was a request for potato salad with sunday dinner. I was not willing to make something covered in mayo... Pinterest and Tastspotting to the rescue! I found a great recipe that turned potatoes into more of a real salad... and with 2 blue cheese lovers in the house, it was an easy choice.
1kg red potatoes, quartered, boiled, and chilled
100g pancetta, diced and cooked until crispy
70g blue cheese crumbles... okay, we may have used more
6 roma tomatoes, diced
1 bunch parsley, chopped finely
2T balsamic vinegar
salt & pepper
Mix together all ingredients in a bowl. Chill in fridge for 3 hours. Serve on a Sunday with chicken and broccoli... or any time with anything!
Today is a special day! One year ago I married my best friend.
We've had a crazy year! We went to San Deigo, San Jose del Cabo, Paris, Baton Rouge, and Houston, moved 4000km to a new country, B started working, and I took a break from the working world.
I cannot wait for many more years of traveling, quiet nights at home, and everything else the world sends our way!
P.S. Still working on the name change. I did not think it would take this long! Can I please send a big shout out to CAOT, United MileagePlus, and the Louisiana DMV for being on the top of my list of easiest places to change my last name. I appreciate you.
2 cups frozen peas
4 ounces goat cheese
3/4 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest
4 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto, cut into 1/2-inch wide strips
Place cheese in a large bowl and crumble it into small pieces. Add orange zest. Stir in drained pasta and peas and toss until cheese has melted and evenly coated the pasta. If cheese doesn't melt completely, add a few tablespoons of reserved pasta cooking water and continue tossing. Stir in prosciutto and serve.
I am a big fan of oatmeal cookies. I am also a huge fan of oatmeal cookie frozen yogurt. When we walked into Yogurtland last night and I saw that Oatmeal Cookie fro yo was back I knew my day was complete. It actually tastes like the real thing but is cold and refreshing!
At 30 calories per ounce I don't feel too guilty about the sweet treat either!
Back to my busy day! See you tomorrow!
