Mighty Life List

My Life List Proceeds Apace

I’m looking for ten solid recipes to go in each section of my recipe tin. I’m particularly light on veggies (because I tend to just steam and serve), pork, beef, and appetizers.

Some simple, fun things I’ve was doing on Go Mighty when I wasn’t here:

My little fire escape garden is so life affirming.

I’ve added five bathtubs to my 100 bathtubs goal.

Mulberries, I have decided, are not very delicious. I’ve tasted around 110 of my 1,000 fruits, but have yet to move them all over to Go Mighty. Trust.

Peppers are pretty in a bouquet, and they sort of look like fingers. That makes 16 out of 100 bouquets.

I’ve made 19 of my 100 cocktails. So I’m probably drunk right now.

Love,
Maggie

    tasty, easy appetizer: homemade Boursin cheese

    1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
    2 tsp each dried basil, oregano
    1 tsp black pepper
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 tsp half & half….maybe more
    1 clove garlic, minced

    Place ingredients in a bowl. Using hand mixer, mix on high speed for 3 minutes. Transfer to serving bowl. Let sit in fridge for 30 minutes and then serve with crackers, warm baguette, fresh veggies. Delicious!

    I love roasted veggies! Simply chop, pour some olive oil, grind pepper and sprinkle salt. My favorites are sweet potatoes, carrots, asparagus (drizzle with some basalmic vinegar after cooking), and broccoli. Cook the first two with onion as well, yum! Oh, also winter squash–cut in half, drizzle with oil, add some s&p.

    You can also sautée zucchini, squash, and onions, then toss in whatever spices and cheese sound good to you. Put in an oven-safe dish, sprinkle something crunchy on top, and bake.

    Brussels sprouts sautéed in broth with craisins or raisins and minced garlic. My MIL makes this, and it is delicious!!

    Greek Pasta – put your water on to boil, by the time your pasta is ready, your meal is ready.

    Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan, add 2 (+/-) minced cloves of garlic. Heat for a minute or so to toast the garlic. Add a can of diced tomatoes. Now, go and crumble up some feta cheese, chop some basil & parsley (I like a LOT, like handfuls, your mileage may vary, it’s VERY green this way), and slice some black olives.

    When your pasta is ready, drain it and put it back in a big bowl/pot, add the feta, olives, basil and parsley, pour the tomato sauce over all of it. Mix. The basil and parsley wilt a bit and the cheese melts a bit. It’s DELICIOUS warm or cold in your lunch the next day.

    I just read all 5 of your bathtub stories and I love them. I want to have more baths. Can you please—pretty pretty please with a cherry on top!—write a post on how to have a good bath? It seems silly, but I only take baths once in a while, and every time, I think “Ahh, this is nice, I should do this more often.” But then I never do. I forget how wonderful they are. I think I’m doing it wrong.
