ARF/5-A-Day #37

by Cate on September 13, 2006

Hard to believe we’ve been doing the ARF/5-A-Day for 37 weeks now – wow! I’m so glad everyone has continued to join in week after week, filling our eyes with such delicious, but healthy, foods to inspire us.

I kept it easy tonight for my contribution … I took fresh mushrooms and sliced them up, and added them with sliced onions in a pan with olive oil, sauteeing them slowly until they were a nice golden caramel color. When it was done, I added a bit of salt, pepper, garlic and fresh spinach, letting it wilt. While doing that, I cooked some linguini and roasted fresh tomatoes from Sunday’s farmers market in the oven. Once everything was done, I put it all together … Pantry Pasta, full of fresh veggie goodness. Of course, with The Husband and Nicholas both detesting spinach and mushrooms, I kept theirs veggie-free. More’s the pity, and more for me!

Until tomorrow…

A year ago today … nuthin’ special.

P.P.S. Don’t forget … I’ll Show You Mine, You Show Me Yours #5 is up next. This time, show us your “go to” dish. You can find the roundup for #4 here, along with a more detailed explanation of how to join in the fun.

On with the round-up and everyone else’s inspiring contributions.

I have got to stop reading food blogs at one in the morning! Now I am really hungry.

A lot of good looking recipes as usual. Thanks for doing the roundup.

That chocolate zucchini bread looks great and the broccoli salad too.

The Chocolate Lady – it’s definitely a dangerous addiction. ;)

Kalyn – another stack for me to add to my to-try pile for sure.

Annie – I definitely agree. Can’t beat eating sweets while getting your greens in too. ;)
