So mom and dad (aka Gma and Gpa) rolled out this morning. They left their little white pick up parked out in front and every time I pass the window and see it my heart takes a little leap thinking... "oh good, Grandma is here." then I remember she's on her way back to Texas and I'm on my own... two screaming kids, disastrous mess of a house and all.
We get a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box every Saturday. LAST Saturday we got a bunch of leeks... THIS Saturday we got a bunch more. CRAP! What on earth am I going to do w/ this many leeks. I like leeks, but I don't know what to do w/ them. I found a risotto recipe to try, but it requires cooked lentils - I don't have those and I'm not about to truck the clan to the non-Trader Joe's grocery store (this involves driving the car) just for lentils... so I hopped on allrecipes.com and found this little gem of a Potato Leek recipe.. I have everything and managed somehow to make it while the kids were still awake. I am now enjoying a nice yummy bowl and all seems well. (I, of course, adapted the recipe to use no animal products.)
That's all for now.. I must clean this place up, prep for the next meal and figure out what I'm going to do for the rest of the day. :)
