This spicy apricot sauce is one of my favorite recipes to make in the summer time when apricots are in season. They are fresh and juicy and just begging to be used in all kinds of dishes from desserts to more savoury ones like this. I like to put away a few jars of apricot preserves each year so that the goodness can last well into the winter season. After spending the day in front of the stove putting up preserves tossing together this dish on the grill is a nice reprieve come dinner time….
This recipe has become a true summer favourite in our house. It’s easy to toss together, full of veggies, doesn’t heat up the house, and cleanup is a breeze! We have cooked it up and served it with wraps, as shown, on salad, or over rice….
A few months ago I went to this little hole in the wall Thai place somewhere near Syracuse. I was there for work and wanted a healthy-ish dinner. I get really sick of the butter laden, fried, and heavy food that seems to dominate the restaurant scene. I realize that some of the higher end restaurants don’t always serve that kind of thing, but I’m not looking to spend that kind of money when I’m out of town for work.
Dal is a traditionally Indian dish that has a tendency to look a little different depending on whose home you’re in. It’s kind of like tomato sauce in Italy. Every family has “their” recipe and it’s the best one you’ll ever have, according to them, anyway.
These are the kinds of recipes that I love. They are rustic and homey and so, so comforting. I may not have any Mideast or Asian genes in me (but really who knows these things?), but I can still appreciate all the feels that this dish brings. It was a welcome comfort after the wild weekend and stressful week that happened last week….
I already told you about this meal in a heartfelt post last week, but I only posted the fish portion of the meal. Today we are talking about the French Style Potato Salad with Green Beans that you got a sneak peek at previously.
