So this morning as my boyfriend was cooking breakfast and i say - let's go to the farmers market! And his response was - NO, look at all this great food we have and how full the refrigerator is!
Then, he challenged me to an iron chef battle. We each are going to cook a 3 course meal today and we will be judged on creativity, taste, and presentation. And we aren't allowed to go to the store for anything. I instantly became giddy like an 8 year old girl who was just told she was getting a pony.
And the truth is, we really do have way too much food in the house. That's part of my problem...way to many options! And I kind of feel like i have to cook him something that i haven't made for him before.
So here are some of the ingredients I have:
green lip mussels
lots of avocado
monterey jack cheese
half and half
whole wheat tortillas
fresh pasta and ravioli
some frozen fruit and vegetables
then i have a lot of regular pantry items like pasta, chicken stock, seasonings, and snack foods, etc..
thought it might be fun to get some suggestions from all of you before i finalize my menu. Let me know your thoughts!
