The Holidays are FINALLY over! Hooray!!! Work has finally begun to slow down and I have had some time to go snowboarding and cook for myself again. I made it through with only having two sick days. *Knock on wood* My herb plants have gotten huge, leaving me with an abundance of sage, rosemary and thyme. I also planted the bottom stalks of my scallions and they grow like an inch a day! If you have never tried replanting your scallions or celery you must try it! Here is a good article about plants you can re-grow: 12 Vegetables That Magically Regrow Themselves. I have tried, and succeeded, in regrowing bok choy, celery, scallions and lettuce. I think I will try the pineapple and avocado for kicks!
I am still in the rich winter comfort food zone, so I hope you are as well! I decided to try adding balsamic to my brown butter sauce on a whim and it was a great addition! This recipe has a rich nuttiness from the brown butter that is balanced out by the acidic balsamic vinegar. The sweet potatoes and kale are great, nutritious additions as well!
