Since my mom and I were recipe twins earlier in the week and both made gazpacho, I don’t have a real recipe but I have thrown together a few meals inspired by other recipes that I thought were worth sharing:
Usually when I make a frittata, I just throw in whatever veggies that I have. But for some reason, I never really thought of just using tomatoes. I saw a recipe for a tomato frittata in this month’s Bon Appetit and decided to try it–kind of, I didn’t have any parm cheese. And I added some basil. So I was more just inspired by the recipe. Even though this recipe is super simple, the addition of fresh summer tomatoes make it a delicious one
I saw a recipe for Charred Corn Tacos with Zucchini and Radish slaw on Smitten Kitchen. I didn’t have tortillas, I thought I would use the ingredients in a salad. I already had both radishes and zucchini and decided to make the slaw. So, I combined radishes and zucchini and added lime juice to that mixture. I combined the slaw with corn (sliced straight off the cob), black beans, tomato, avocado, lettuce and chicken. For the dressing, I used a mix of barbeque sauce and greek yogurt. I ate this most days this week because it was so good! And I used to be a radish hater–looks like I’m coming around.
The pics aren’t the best–but I have very little natural light at my windowless cube-ha.
Here are a few other recipes I have my eye on via Pinterest:
This post made me laugh today because sometimes Pinterest really does have a way of making me feel sub-par. And it has a way of making me want to buy clothes/jewelry, be craftier, redo my apartment and do more DIY stuff. But it has given me some good ideas, so I’ll keep it.
Happy Almost Friday! Have a great weekend everyone!
