I've been on a cooking kick the past couple of weeks. I think it's mainly because I've been really bored since I'm only taking one credit this session and I have a lot of free time. I've been trying out a lot of new recipes and so far, I think I've liked most. My favorite as of now is probably the spicy peanut noodles I made last week. Jeremy's has been, hands down, the salmon clubs. He told me I can make them whenever I want.

Yesterday I made swordfish because Fresh Market was having a huge sale on it. To go along with it I made a beet and feta cheese salad and roasted red potatoes. The beets, also from Fresh Market, came with great beet leaves that you normally don't see in grocery stores so today I had to make beet leaf halubtsi. It turned out pretty well for my first time. We took it, along with the leftover beets and potatoes, on our picnic this evening. Not exactly normal picnic food, but it was good.

The best thing about cooking all the time is having leftovers for lunch the next day. I don't always like to make my lunch for work, probably because it ends up being the same food all the time, so I like having food in the fridge I can just throw in a container and heat up later.

Um, YUM! I plan to try both of these sometime. I'm not a big fac of avocados, but I think that's because I once had a bad experience... This gives me a good excuse to try it again!

Not a big fan of avocados?!?! When I lived in Texas and they were cheap, I ate so many of them. Now that they're 3-5 times the price, I rarely buy them. They were on sale last week so I stocked up.

YUM! you know you can freeze some of that food and send it to me! :) The only thing that I have mastered making is smoothies. they're pretty delish I wanted to make Sloppy joes last week but then Cory's mom beat me to the grocery store returning with stuff for dinner.

If you can find beet leaves you can use swiss chard to make the holipsi. Scald the leaves the same way as beet leaves and follow the recipe. They are so good with chard.
