Weekends are for (but not limited to) friends, family, food, hiking, movies...
Last weekend we hiked to Henninger Flats. It was a good, long, steep hike. I think our bodies needed it.
This weekend, we spent time with family and good friends, rode our bikes to the movies (TWICE! It's the $2 theater, we can't help ourselves), ate good food, and just relaxed.
I don't get much time to cook during the week, so I try to do more cooking on the weekends. And right now, I'm going through this phase, and I'm sort of stuck. See, I am trying to stay away from gluten, and I've been doing really good for the most part, but it's really worked over my meals. I've had to rethink all my usuals. But it's going really well, I kind of like the challenge and change. I think I've figured out that I am not allergic to it, but I have found that I feel a lot better when I don't eat a ton of it. So, for that matter, I am experimenting!
... And in other news, this coming weekend we are going to: NEW FREAKIN YORK!
2 potatoes, chopped up in small pieces
2 squash, chopped up in small pieces
1 onion, finely chopped
4 decent sized okras, sliced
1) Saute the onions in a little oil for a few mins then add the potatoes and okra. Add a splash of water and cover till the potatoes are soft 5-10 mins. Add the squash and cook for a couple more minutes. Salt & pepper to taste, and set aside.
2) Cook an egg as you like, fried, sunny side up, poached and serve over the hash.
