Hope you're enjoying your longgg weekend! I am (I wish every weekend was a three day weekend!!). Today I went to the pool for a couple hours, did some cleaning/laundry, watched some more Entourage and then made up a few dishes. Dinner tonight was a new stir fry of sorts. Josh and I made dinner together tonight. He started up the dish by browning up some ground lean turkey. In a separate pot, I added a little olive oil, chick peas and asparagus and cooked them until the asparagus was starting to soften up. We combined the turkey, chick peas, and asparagus and added a little stir fry sauce and slivered almonds. The dish was topped with sesame seeds and a bit of grated parm cheese. It turned out really well.
My experiment of the day was gnocchi. I have never made it before and was nervous. I used the recipe and directions found at 101 cookbooks. Instead of using a fork to make the indentations in the gnocchi, I just pressed on them with my thumb. I have definitely never made anything like this before but found it to be pretty easy for the most part. Having a pastry scrapper or something similar is def key! I froze them up and you will see them on Wednesday of this week for dinner. I hope they're good!
