I was looking through my old pictures and it turns out that before I was blogging I was still taking pictures of my meals! I found a nice spread from last summer, and although I don’t remember the recipes exactly, I thought I should share them.
Bits of Nori seaweed
1. Prepare the noodles as the package directs. Bring water to a boil, boil them for however long the package says, then drain them and pour cold water over them so that they cool.
2. Prepare the sauce – mix together the remaining ingredients.
3. Dip the cold soba noodles into the sauce and eat!
2 ears of corn
3 fresh tomatoes
1 sliced cucumber
minced garlic (optional)
Cook the corn in boiling water with a dash of brown sugar for 8-10 minutes. Wait for the ears to cool, then cut off the kernels. Chop the tomatoes. Toss everything together and serve. It doesn’t even need dressing because the tomatoes and corn should be juicy on their own. If you find yourself needing some type of sauce, throw in a tablespoon of olive oil for extra flavor.
There was also some orzo that came from a prepackaged mix (eek!). It was actually pretty good. I think it was from the organic section, so it can’t have been too bad.
