Khaki Thursday! Blue Apron dinner, and the little pieces.

Welcome everyone! It's a legit KT today.



 I didn't make it to the gym this morning, but I'm planning a run this evening. The weather is significantly cooler today(I had to wear a jacket this morning!) so it should be no problem. Run like the wind!!!!

 BLUE APRON

I made another Blue Apron meal last night. This was by far the best one yet! I can't wait to make it again. Oh, and I have leftovers I may have for lunch! Advantage: this girl.

Seared Salmon and panzanella: 

 If you've never seen the easy way to peel (?) corn on the cob, look it up on pinterest and do it. It is so simple.

Preheat oven to 400. Cut a baguette lengthwise, brush with EVOO, salt, and pepper. Bake for 10 mins while preparing the meal.

Cut corn kernels off the cob, and saute in EVOO with salt and pepper. While that cooks, marinate a thinly sliced shallot in red wine vinegar (mmmm). Large dice 2 plum tomatoes, medium dice 1 medium cucumber, slice shishito peppers, smash and rough chop Castelvetrano olives, and remove thai basil leaves from stems.

When corn is heated through, remove to large bowl. Saute peppers in same pan until brown on all sides. Place in bowl with corn. Pat salmon dry and season with salt and pepper. Cook in same pan with 2t EVOO for 4-6 mins each side or until done to your liking.

Once bread is cooled enough to handle, rub with a fresh clove of garlic (cut in half is easiest) and then cube into crouton sized pieces. Make sure to eat a few first....just in case. ?? Add to bowl of corn and peppers, and add in tomatoes, olives, cucumbers, onion with vinegar, basil, salt, pepper, and drizzle with EVOO. Stir until mixed.

Plate dinner and EAT ALL THE FOODS. Don't share. Don't invite anyone over. Keep any leftovers for tomorrow and tell no one about them.

...what was I saying yesterday about loving our neighbors..... nom, nom, nom. I forget...

LITTLE PIECES OF GOD

I LOVE when the little pieces come together. God is always at work, but we rarely notice it because we are focused on the big picture, and more than likely it's in a different art gallery than His is. But when we go to Him with our full attention and ask Him to lead us, and then watch even when it seems blind, He'll show us something amazing.

Yesterday I told you about reading Galatians, and didn't know why I chose that book. I figured it out, I didn't choose it. God did. He chose it because my friend was reading Genesis. There are verses about Sarah and Isaac, Hagar and Ishmael... in Genesis, AND in Galatians. We had something to talk about together, a way to connect old and new, and something to fuel our excitement to read. Did we fully understand the scripture? Probably not. But did reading it serve a purpose? YES. Accountability is key when trying to stick to something. God really, really wants us to stick to reading His word. She wanted to start at the beginning. I wanted to go wherever I felt led. God led us to the exact same passages from two different directions.

Little moments, little glimmers, big things.

  1. Not a fan of croutons, maybe I would feel differently if I made them myself, but I doubt it. The rest of dinner looks yummy.
