Roasted Cauliflower puree with Pan-fried chicken
***I originally wrote most of this post in Mid-March, but was unable to get Y!C!’s recipe and then I forgot about it until yesterday. So, I am going to post it anyway. Note that our activities occurred in early to Mid-March.***
We’ve been spending most of our spare time over at the Money Pit, trying to get it finished so that we can move in. We are gradually taking our stuff over there so we can unpack while we are waiting for contractor mistakes to be fixed. Our patience is being challenged. If you want to read about the details, you can go here: Keeping It Midcentury
So Yes!Chef! has not had a lot of time to cook and be creative.
Food Stories Winner for July, 2012
First, a little boasting. We were notified on Friday that our blog was the July winner of “Food Stories Award for Excellence in Story Telling“. Back in May, 2012, I wrote a blog post that we had been nominated by Pop the Bubbly for the Illuminating Blogger Award. I was quite excited (so was Yes!Chef!) because this award is not just about blogging recipes or showing pretty pictures of food. It is about telling stories and not necessarily just about food. I am all about telling stories…Just ask my children.
I checked out the competition several times since I was nominated, and they are a great group of bloggers. In fact, I spent quite a bit of time perusing some of the entries. But then, life got in the way and I kind of forgot about it until we got the notification on Friday morning that we had won. Now, I can say: Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner! Hazaah!
Leaping for Joy
Last Saturday I stopped by the Placerville Farmers Market for the first time this year. I was amazed at all the fresh fruits and veggies that were available this early in the season. I was also surprised about the amount of people that were there until I remembered that the Wagon Train was in town for their annual parade. I did not stick around for that, because it gets kind of crazy in town, but it is certainly an interesting and fun event that’s been around a very long time.
