SEPTEM BER 2016


Growing up, my mom packed my lunch every day. I always wanted to buy my lunch, I thought it was cooler, but every day, through sophomore year of high school I had a homemade lunch. On the days I bought lunch, it wasn’t due to my moms lack of preparation, it was because I wore her down for Thursday pizza day. My lunches weren’t extravagant, normally a sandwich, pretzels, carrots, and if I was lucky, a homemade cookie, and always a napkin. I never appreciated the time it took to shop, cook, and pack. And while my lunches always tasted better than the school lunches looked, I didn’t appreciate my mom spending so much time to make sure I had a well balanced, non-toxic meal. On top of lunches my mom cooked us breakfast every morning, dinner every night, worked full time, and was always overly involved in our lives. My mom never complained, nor thought of just ordering dinner in. These days, I have a hard enough time preparing lunches for just me. Not to mention lunch for Andrew, dinner for both of us, and forget about a well balanced breakfast. When I use to work in an office, I was lucky enough to have lunch made every day, but the food rivaled my old school lunches. The majority of the time, I brought food from home. But even I, who loved cooking, and thought of it as the best part of my day, not another chore, would give in to the convince of office lunches or the food court across the street. I found that when I had easy to throw together recipes that required little prep, or made good leftovers, I wouldn’t give into the temptation of a crappy lunch. With the beginning of school and a new season, I think it is time we gave ourself one less thing to worry about, while eating good food.

We are not going to dive too deep into this major problem, but food waste is a world wide issue. And the best way to fight back is in your own kitchen. From freezing food, to composting, there are simple things you can do to decrease your “food”print.

$1 TRILLION OF FOOD IS TOSSED EACH YEAR.

2

ND

ORGANIC WASTE IS THE SECOND LARGEST COMPONENT OF USA LANDFILLS

PLAN OUT YOUR MEALS EACH WEEK. Know what you are cooking, and how you plan to use the leftovers. This will reduce unused food going bad in your fridge before it gets cooked or eaten.

1:1 WE TOSS ALMOST AS MUCH FOOD EACH YEAR AS WE CONSUME

REDUCE THE AMOUNT YOU COOK + FREEZE LEFTOVERS. Your eyes are likely larger than your stomach, but even the best intentioned person can end up with leftovers. Freezing everything from breads to herbs lets you lower your food waste and have a freezer full of ready to go food.

LEARN TO COMPOST: Food in landfills, unlike in compost piles, breaks down to produce methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times more potent than carbon dioxide. To compost, purchase a compost container, and simply add (almost) any and all food scraps to it every day. From coffee grounds, to banana peels, to egg shells, add them to your compost and allow them to decompose creating mineral reach soil for gardening. If you do not have your own garden, or planted herbs, many cities or farmers markets will gladly take your compost! 6

keep track of rsvp’s placecards

Most people view placecards as stuffy a fashion, but they are my favorite party of a party. They tie the evening together, eleva dinner, and help eliminate that awkward m where people don’t know where to sit or can. As people RSVP, write their name on card. This helps you see who is coming, how people, and eliminates any last minute r around the day of your dinner.

Send your guest home with something to nibble on on the ride home or the next morning. The best party favors are made in large batches and keep well. See our favorite recipes on page 16

pick the perfect playlist No one likes walking into a silent room, so set the mood before your guest arrive with the perfect playlist. Add your favorite tunes to your Spotify playlist and always have it ready to go. Or pick one of the hundred dinner party theme playlist already there. I am a fan of Pandora for dinner parties; Jack Johnson, Vampire Weekend, Hipster Cocktail Party, and Pink Martini are a few of my go-to stations

Practice “mise en place” “Mise en place” is the practice of having all the ingredients out and ready to go before you start cooking. Chop your onions, mince the garlic, pre-measure broth, anything you can do to have ready to go, do the night before. Not only does this cut down on prep time the day of, you will know if you are short on an ingredient ahead of time so you don’t have to run to the store last minute. Or send your partner.

pour a glass and get to cooking You’ve done the prep work, now pour a glass of your favorite wine and impress all your friends with your talent in the kitchen. Remember to enjoy the process and evening. Dinner parties are about spending time with love ones more than the main course. You can still have the best night even if you end up ordering pizza.

When you think back over the dinner parties you have been to, you probably remember the great time you had, the company, the conversation, and maybe the food. Don’t get me wrong, the food is important. Very important, but as long as your guest are feed, the drinks are full, and the conversation flows, your night will be a hit. I have found that the most important part of the night are the appetizers. Even when I myself am cooking the main course, I can’t help but fill up on small bites. When you are planning the menu don’t skimp on the beginning of the night, the following recipes are guarantee hits! And even better, can be made far in advance.

WHILE THE FOOD IS THE MAIN ATTRACTION OF ANY DINNER PARTY, IT IS THE LITTLE THINGS THAT MAKE THE NIGHT MEMORABLE. PEOPLE MAY NOT RAVE OVER THINGS SUCH AS PLACE CARDS, THANK YOU GIFTS, OR PRINTED MENUS DURING THE EVENING, WHEN THEY LOOK BACK ON THE EVENTS YOU HOST, THESE ARE THE THINGS THAT END UP LEAVING A BIG IMPRESSION AND WILL MAKE YOU THE HOSTESS WITH THE MOSTESS. SMALL PARTY FAVORS SHOULD BE SIMPLE, BUT BEAUTIFULLY WRAPPED AND THOUGHTFUL. I ALWAYS GO WITH A SNACK THAT IS EASY TO MAKE IN LARGE BATCH AND WARP IT UP IN A CELLOPHANE BAG AND TAG.

I can’t say for certain that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but I do believe that how you start your day, puts you on the path for how your day will go. If I splurge and pick up a doughnut on the way in to the office, I am more likely to eat poorly the rest of the day. I make a smart choice, I am more likely to stay on that path the rest of the day. With busy schedules, I know breakfast can get shoved to the bottom of our priority list, but there is no reason for that. So many breakfast dishes can be made over the weekend to get you through the week. Our favorites are frittatas (or quiches, or tarts, basically all the same), they are fulling, last well in the fridge, and reheat beautifully. The more you add in, the better.

VERY FULL TART

Serves 4-6

1 red bell pepper 1 yellow bell pepper 6 T olive oil + 1 medium eggplant, cut into 2-inch dice 1 sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1-inch dice 1 zucchini, cut into 1-inch dice 2 sweet onions, thinly sliced 2 bay leaves 11 oz pie crust dough 8 thyme sprigs, leaves picked 1/3 C ricotta 5 oz feta 10 cherry tomatoes, halved 3 eggs 1 C heavy cream Salt and pepper 1 pie crust 1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. 2. Cut bell peppers in half and de-seed. Discard the stems and seeds. Place peppers in a small oven-proof dish, drizzle with olive oil and place on the top shelf in the oven. 3. Mix eggplant in a bowl with 4 T of olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread on large baking pan and place in the oven on the shelf beneath peppers. 4. After 12 minutes add sweet potato dices to the eggplant stir gently. Return to the oven for another 12 minutes. 5. Add zucchini to the pan, stir and cook for 10 30

to 12 minutes. 6. Remove all from the oven and reduce the temperature to 325 degrees. 7. Cover the peppers with foil and cool, then peel and tear roughly into strips. 8. Heat 2 T of olive oil in a frying pan on medium heat. Saute the onions with the bay leaves and some salt for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat, discard the bay leaves and set aside. 9. Butter a 9-inch loose-bottomed tart pan. Line the pan with the dough, pressing it into the corners and leaving the excess hanging over the top edge. Fill it with pie weights or dried beans. Bake the crust for 30 minutes. 10. Remove weights, bake for 10 -15 minutes more, or until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool. 11. Scatter onion over bottom of the crust, top with roasted vegetables. 12. Scatter half the thyme leaves over. Next, dot the vegetables with small chunks of both cheeses and then with the tomato halves, cut-side up. 13. Whisk eggs and cream in a small bowl with salt and pepper. 14. Pour this mix into the tart; the top layer of tomatoes and cheese should remain exposed. 15.
