We’ve been going non-stop this summer. It’s been amazing! I took my kids to Las Vegas for a “Super Secret adventure.” They didn’t know where we were going until we got to the airport gate and they were able to read Las Vegas on the board. They kinda freaked out. It was super cool. Now I’m off to San Diego for work so it feels like we haven’t been home much. Which is completely okay with me but it’s tough when I want to cook. If I make something that my kids won’t eat, I either have to eat it for 5 days straight or I end up throwing it away. I hate that. So I haven’t been baking or cooking much.
August is here and that means it’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day. My blog assignment this month was The Wimpy Vegetarian. Susan is the author of this wonderful blog and she “shares vegetarian recipes and how to adjust them for the omnivores at the table whether you’re in a mixed marriage or cooking for a mixed family.” Susan has entered numerous cooking contests and has won first place in Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs recipe development contest in 2014 for her Huevos Rancheros recipe.
I really wanted to make her Bang Bang Cauliflower Mac n Cheese. It looks absolutely delicious. I am still planning on making it but I’m going to wait until it’s not 90 degrees outside and when I’m home for longer than 3 days in a row. Then I saw her Pickled Asparagus post and I really wanted to try it. I love asparagus and I love everything pickled. Great combination! And I perfect thing to take to our family beach trip coming up.
The recipe was easy and the asparagus was delicious! Thank you, Susan, for this one.
