June, hot days and hotter days to come! A perfect time to make an easy strawberry salad for those hot days! Strawberries are of abundance in June, since it is strawberry picking month. Because they are in abundance, also means there are super great deals at the super markets.
Since getting back from vacation and moving a week after, I haven't been interested in cooking much. I mean there has been a lot going on, including officially sleep training and night weaning my son! I'll get back into the swing of things! For lunch I made an easy vegetable platter. This was the perfect light lunch and not much cooking required!
Soup with LOTS of lemon and lime is a must for me when it comes to chicken soup. I make herb lemon chicken soup several times during the winter. Surprisingly, I haven't made it much this winter. I love saving the leftovers, in the freezer for those sick days, as I don't enjoy canned soup much. Leftover soup tastes even better the following the day. It's even a better recipe for the crockpot. It smells so good cooking the whole day.
By now you can see how much I love roasted vegetables. Adding farro to the mix makes it even better. For those nights you don't want meat. And by that I mean chicken. My husband is perfectly fine having chicken for breakfast, lunch and dinner but I get tired of it. This farro bowl is hearty and very filling. You got yourself some nice fall colors in this dish. Very halloweenish if you asked me. All I did was make some roasted vegetables and then realized the halloween colors are all in this dish! HA! In 15 minutes you have all the vegetables you need for a nutritious meal.
I decided to make a part II on What to Do and Make with Leftovers. There are so many ways to incorporate your leftovers instead of tossing them in the trash! Of course, if you are not planning on using them right away then make sure to freeze them! Don't you love going to restaurants where there is a salad bar with a ton on roasted vegetables to add to your salad? I love that! I have thought of doing that on many occasions. Preparing a bunch of vegetables to add to my salads. Using my leftovers gives me the same results without having to make extras for salads!
