Pomegranate Martinis

The goodies in our weekly Full Circle organic box aren't just for eatin'. The pomegranate was put to good use for cosmopolitan martinis. Cheers!

Recipe Mashup

Monday recipe mashup. Fresh beets from our Full Circle organic box...and cardamom my mom purchased during a recent trip to Turkey.
Beets were diced and tossed with olive oil, sea salt, a sprinkle of white vinegar and about a half teaspoon of ground cardamom. Then, sealed in a foil packet and baked at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. The foil was opened and beets caramelized for about 15 minutes. Oh my!

Fennel Salt

New to me: Fennel salt. This surprise was tucked into my Full Circle organic box delivery Wednesday, and was quickly put to use. The box also contained red potatoes. Dice the potatoes, toss with a little olive oil and sprinkle with fennel salt. Bake at 375 for about 45-50 minutes, with a couple of stirs along the way. 
Let me tell you that these potatoes were extra sweet, which added a delicious dimension to the dish. I had planned to take a photo of all the goodies in the box this week, but the kiddo got there before me and ate all the carrots, pears and satsumas.

Same Name, but Not Equal

I finished off my homemade roasted pumpkin seeds and was seriously craving more. So, I purchased a package. I regret this. No wonder some people think they don't like pumpkin seeds. Bummer that I'll have to wait a year for a new supply.
