Is Your Homework Done?
The first few weeks of school are not cooking friendly. There's a lot going on -- everything is in fast forward, earlier sunsets, earlier bedtimes, earlier wake up calls.
We've been taking advantage of the great local farmers' market, heirloom tomatoes from our own garden, and my cheese and hummus connection at kybecca to throw together great fresh food in 10 minutes or less. The kids love dipping veggies into the kybecca hummus with spicy peppadews for their after school snack. We've been having the Hudson Valley Camembert with cantalope and berries on the side. So yummy . . .
There's a quick pasta we throw together, a little smoky blue cheese, prosciutto or bacon, a bit of red wine, garlic, crushed red pepper, tomatoes or not. The Buttermilk Blue at kybecca is terrific in this.
I might not actually plan a meal until Thanksgiving.
