TSRI Weekly Review
Happy Saturday Slow Roasters! It has been an amazing week here at The Slow Roasted Italian. We have been planning, gardening, and finding ways to utilize the fruits on our property. Chad discovered that the 32 orange trees that we have blooming are Seville (bitter) oranges. There are many culinary and beauty uses for these trees, the flowers and fruit. So, I am very excited about this development.
Mr. Wonderful also cleared the remaining fruit off our lemon tree and I zested and juiced over 100 lemons. Whew! I guess we have a lot of lemon dishes coming up soon.
This week our most popular post (already #6 on the all time popular list) is the Roasted Vegetable Penne Pasta. Oven roasted vegetables tossed with penne pasta and an incredible garlic olive oil sauce. It was absolutely delicious, I do hope you try it soon!
Our next most popular post this week has been Chad's Shamrock Shake Cocktail. This is an adult twist on McD's famous Shamrock Shake.
Next on the weekly list is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip. Incredibly tasty and very popular, it is sure to meet your sweet expectations!
My favorite this week was the Honey Wheat Oatmeal Bread. Sure to be another in our family bread catalog! It was the perfect bread for grilled cheese sandwiches.
I sure hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we did and if you happen to make a recipe, please post your outcome or link to your blog post. We are so happy to hear your results!
Have a fantastic weekend. We will be knee deep in garden beds and seeds planting!!! This weekend is sure to be exciting. We will share pics when the beds are planted.
Buon Appetito, Donna, Chad and Munchkin!
