It's been quite a while since I've posted in Carole's Concoctions. And, it's not because I haven't been concocting, I have been swamped. Getting Heirloom Meals off the ground requires me to do many things. Blogging, radio interviews, TV show, fundraising, social media etc. And then there's the rest of my life. So, I am trying really hard to be more diligent about writing.
This past Sunday I sprained my ankle and have been sitting with my foot elevated for the past 3-4 days. I didn't feel like cooking but never-the-less, we needed to eat.
I concocted up a pasta with tuna and artichoke hearts that was a keeper. Here's the recipe. I hope you enjoy it!

I was inspired by EatingWell Fast & Flavorful Meatless Meals: 150 Healthy Recipes Everyone Will Love (EatingWell), Eating Well Magazine's idea of using their book, to eat my way through May without consuming meat. I ordered the book a little late and it should be arriving soon, so I have had to improvise.
Here's what I concocted using Italian Kale and the first herbs from my garden: Kale and Cannellini Bean Soup.

Hope springs eternal and oh, so happy for those first green vegetables of spring - asparagus, watercress and artichokes. While not all are grown here in Massachusetts, they are the spring veggies that you can find in abundance in the grocery store. Over the last few days, I have enjoyed making watercress soup, asparagus polonaise and baby artichokes.
I hope you enjoy these and please share your concoctions and versions!

Jim's kids are here and I am at it again...Christmas dinner #2. And the Roast Prime Rib is the request from the troops! I remember growing up we used to go to an Inn in the Poconos called Pocono Manor Inn and we all loved the Prime Rib au jus. So I love creating what I remember of that meal...the tender, juicy meat with a side of au jus, baked potato or some variation on the potato and a green vegetable.
So, I guess I am concocting up a meal from my food memory lane in the hopes that my step kids conjure similar memories when they are older.
Here's my Prime Rib Recipe. Enjoy!
