How is it already mid-July? I feel like this summer is flying by and I’m not happy about it. If anyone has figured out how to slow down time, please let me know.
I’ve officially decided I’m 100% a summer-lover. I love everything about the bright and sunny days, long, warm evenings, and especially summer produce. Here’s what I’m cooking up with my CSA box from Food for Lane County this week!
Beets, radishes, garlic, onion, tomatoes, broccoli, romaine, and mixed greens.
Roasted Beets and Beet Greens with Goat Cheese Crostini by Cooking and Beer
Roasted beets and goat cheese is one of my all-time favorite food combinations. I can’t wait to try this recipe along with some really good crusty bread and fresh goat cheese. Yum and yum.
Salmon, Avocado and, Cucumber Salad with Cilantro Dressing by Little Broken
Salmon & avocado are a match made in heaven. Paired alongside fresh greens, cucumber, and radishes, this salad will be a winner for sure!
Grilled Cheery Tomato, Corn, and Goat Cheese Pizza by the Kitchn
I’ve been craving pizza and when a pizza craving hits, it’s important to satisfy it pronto! Since I’ll probably have leftover goat cheese from the roasted beet salad, it will be put to perfect use in this gorgeous summer pizza. Those beautiful ripe tomatoes from my CSA box will be to-die-for on this!
Broiled Romaine by Snacking in the Kitchen
I’ve been wanting to try grilled romaine, but since I don’t own a grill, this broiled version will have to do. I’ll serve this with caesar dressing alongside pizza or leftover salmon.
Oven Roasted Broccoli by Alton Brown
I’m legit obsessed with roasted broccoli. I promise you’ve been missing out if you’ve been steaming your broccoli your whole life. I like this method by Alton Brown.
Toasted Coconut Baked Oatmeal by Minimalist Baker
And a little something for breakfast… I adore this recipe by my favorite, food blog-crush Minimalist Baker! This oatmeal is especially yummy with coconut whipped cream. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Try out the recipe ASAP!
Chewy Chocolate Chunk Coconut Oatmeal Cookies by Ambitious Kitchen
Freshly baked cookies are my husband’s favorite thing in the entire world. I may decide one of these night to be a super nice wife and whip him up a batch of these… 😉
And then I’ll probably eat most of them…
Happy Friday, friends!
