Can I pleeeeeeeeeease meet the man or woman who invented Agua Fresca? I’ve got a hug, a kiss, a handshake and a future newborn that I’d like to name after them. I’m serious. Ok, so perhaps I’ll never meet the person who decided to add fresh chunks of fruit to water and ice. We’ve been running around East Los Angeles quite a bit lately and our taco and mole journeys inspired us to come up with a few aguas frescas ourselves. Pineapple Ginger Agua FrescaIt’s so interesting to me how pineapple and ginger become light and delicate without losing their flare when diluted with plenty of ice and water. Ginger Simple Syrup 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup water 3 pieces of fresh ginger cut into coins Bring water and sugar to a boil and then add the pieces of ginger. For the Drink: 4 cups fresh pineapple with 2-4 cups of water to blend 8-10 cups of water Puree the fruit and water in batches and then strain to remove any seeds or pulp. Cucumber Lemongrass Agua FrescaAh, my heart be still!

Strictly speaking, I suspect the glamorgan sausage ought to fall into that much-maligned category of what evangelical omnivores like to term "fake meat", being both sausage-shaped and sausage-monikered, but not actually containing any dead animals. Yet it doesn't seem to attract the same level of outrage as other vegetarian alternatives – perhaps because it's so unquestionably delicious. I suppose it's hard to feel vitriolic with crumbs round your mouth. The glamorgan sausage first pops up in print in the wonderfully Victorian travelogue, Wild Wales: Its People, Language and Scenery, but despite Wales' long reputation for fine meat, the recipe seems likely to be much older; as early as the 12th century, the chronicler Gerald of Wales remarked on the country's dependence on dairy produce. The cheese The bread Breadcrumbs are the thrifty bulking agent of the sausage. The liquid The flavourings Cheese, of course, cries out for onion. Coating and cooking The perfect glamorgan sausages

Crockpot Freezer Meals! | For the love of learning!!
So we have been eating out entirely too much lately. Usually the reason is because we are very busy and don’t have time to plan and cook meals for the week. About a year ago I had prepped 14 freezer meals. They were not crockpot meals though. Prepping crockpot meals, however, is MUCH easier than meals you would bake in the oven, or skillet. Now, depending on the recipe you use, you may need to blanch your vegetables before you freeze them. So, how do you prepare for making 1-2 (or more) weeks worth of freezer meals?? Next you need to do a little bit of research. Here are the links for the recipes I used: Now write out everything you need in a shopping list. I did the Tex-Mex chicken next. Last bag!!

The first time I heard someone refer to orange soup, I couldn’t quite imagine how it would taste. Soup made from oranges? Wouldn’t that actually be orange juice, or orange compote? Was it served warm? But then, at some point (and don’t ask how long it took), I realized that the name referred to the color, not the ingredients. Despite my initial confusion, I agreed to taste the soup, and it was so good that I had to make my own. This soup is very simple to make, and it freezes (and reheats) well, too. I used butternut squash, sweet potato, carrots, onion, zucchini and potato. Cut all the vegetables into chunks and put them in a sturdy pot. Serve with a dollop of sour cream for an extra zing. Ingredients: 1 butternut squash2 large sweet potatoes1 white potato1 large zucchini4 carrots2 onions3½ cups waterSalt to taste (I used 2 tbsp. kosher salt) Optional: sour cream for garnish Directions: Cut the vegetables into chunks. Yields: 4 servings Variation 1: Spice it! Do you like soup?
