Garlic Knots

I made these Garlic Knots a week or two ago (I can't remember now.) They are pretty delicious. And went very nicely with these meatballs. The meatballs are so easy. Just three ingredients. Meatballs, plum jam, and chili sauce. Throw it all in the crockpot and let it cook till the meatballs are all heated through.

Green Smoothies

A number of months ago one of my roommates introduced me to the wonder that is the green smoothie. They're pretty amazing. Essentially you add fresh spinach to whatever smoothie you happen to be making and it turns your smoothie green without changing the flavor. So instead of having a healthy fruit smoothie with half your servings of fruit for the day, add some spinach and then you've got half your fruit and vegetables. A painless way to eat veggies, what could be better? I will warn you though, depending on what fruit you put in your smoothie the color of green can vary dramatically. If you're looking for a lovely light green I'd suggest more yellow fruits (like pineapple and mango).

BLT Wraps

So I was looking for a recipe for a simple, light, savory hors d' oeuvre that I can take for a work potluck and I ran across this recipe for BLT pitas. While I'm not sure they're quite what I'm looking for for my potluck they did sound quite delicious. So on my way home for work I stopped at the store and bought bacon, lettuce, tomato and completely managed to forget pitas. whoops. Luckily, I had thought that a nice wrap would be good sometime so I did have tortillas. And you know, a BLT makes a pretty awesome wrap. This recipe from Mel's Kitchen Cafe used avocado as well, which was delicious, and I think that it will become a regular guest in future BLTs.
