Our cross-country move is swiftly approaching, so I’ve spent some time cleaning out our fridge, freezer and pantry. It’s made for some very interesting meals (my girls especially loved the grain-free waffles and buttered peas for dinner the other night!). Now that I’m down to the basics, our meals for the next few weeks will be very simple, but still homemade and unprocessed.
I know I’m probably in the minority, but I love to create meals out of what’s in the kitchen. There’s something fun and challenging about being given specific ingredients and then having to figure out how to make them into something appetizing. It always reemphasizes to me that good meals don’t have to be complicated. A few good quality ingredients can go a long way. So, as I was rummaging through the kitchen I found a bit of steak in the freezer, some shallots, olive oil, Dijon and green beans. With a bit of creativity, we had a vibrant and delicious meal.
