It has been a long time since I’ve done a post. The cooking and photos haven’t slowed down.
We have a new book our club is doing- Seven Spoons by Tara O’Brady. I can’t wait to try so many recipes in this gem- so I think we should get started.
I picked the Lemon Bucatini because I had everything on hand- so it came together very quickly.
I will say, I never grow tired of roasted kale- and this was no different.
I did not read the notes section of the recipe first (mistake)- it says to use a thin peeled lemon- which as it turned out I didn’t have. So, I attempted to take the pith off with a knife- which I was both unsuccessful at, and slow. My quick dinner turned a little more labor intensive.
Roasted kale on top and BAM- dinner!
This dish was met with mixed results.
Mason- didn’t like it. (not surprising)
Mark liked it- but didn’t rave.
I thought I didn’t get enough of the pith off. Next time I would take the zest of the lemon- then toss that in the blender with just the flesh. I think it would have been more successful and heavens knows a lot easier.
