After a surprisingly successful World Wide Knit in Public Day, (surprisingly successful meaning Lori, Gil, Martin and I ate an entire freezer bag of seriously delicious chocolate chip cookies that Lori made and brought for us) I needed a nutritious dinner.
PT and I used the left over rice from last night’s scallop dinner and stir fried up some carrots, broccoli, onions, and radishes for an amazing batch of veggie stir fry. We used some teriyaki stir fry sauce, a little soy sauce, and some ginger! This was sweet and crisp and exactly what I needed to combat all the sugar I ate earlier in the day.
We kept that healthy feeling going and (I’m a total liar. After dinner we met up with some dodgeball playing friends, then had some time to kill before rocking some Polish karaoke up on Division and Central Park. We went to El Cid on Kedzie and ate some nachos with cheese and guacamole and beans! Then we needed dessert so we walked across the street to McDonalds and got soft serve cones. The correct beginning of this paragraph is, ‘We were huge fatties, and to get back on track we’) Muffin Clubbed our way over to the Logan Square Farmers Market this morning before Sweater Club.
We got some weird looking long radishes, a lot of mushrooms, and green garlic that I assumed was scallions before Vera corrected me. Green garlic is like a cross between a scallion and garlic, apparently, and can be used like a scallion. She totally talked me into it and I’m glad she did.
We had omelets on the brain, so we chopped a few mushrooms, a radish, and the entire green garlic, stalk and all.
See how pretty they turned out?! I’m so proud! You know I have a problem with the omelet flipping. We sprinkled some parmesan on the top and it was the perfect cheese. Served with potatoes? I savored every bite.
And now we have a shit ton of mushrooms, radishes, and green garlic! What to do with mushrooms? Can you give me a P-I-Z-Z-A! Hellz yeah! I’ve been craving pizza something fierce and what better excuse to bake one up than a fridge full of mushrooms?
I’ll let you know how it turns out.
