I love looking on Foodgawker for food inspiration. I decided to do a whole week of meals inspired by what I’ve seen there. I plan on posting my own versions of what I make afterwards:

I’m getting hungry just typing all this out!

Something else we’ve been up to recently here is taking advantage of the bulk organic oranges and lemons. We’ve been juicing the lemons to make lemony ice cubes, always great to add to a glass of water, and drying the lemon and orange peel for a variety of future baking and cooking uses.

    Hey Annie. My internet has been down for days- it’s nice to catch up with you all here- I love this idea for preserving citrus juice. And that food site is new to me- yum!

    Hi Annie-
    I’m so glad you’re interested in the carrot soup recipe! What fun to see you link to it! And lucky me to have the chance to discover your blog. It’s lovely…look forward to hearing how your soup turns out!

    Taimarie- I’ll give you a call this week. Would love to catch up.

    Megan- I made your soup last night and it was so amazing. I make a couple other different carrot soups but this was so different. Subtle yet lots of flavour!

  6. Wow, I can’t wait!

    We are in a major food slump right now… after cutting out many, many items from my diet due to sensitivities, it has been hard for me to come up with family meals we can all enjoy. I miss it!

    And thanks for the foodgawker link. I had no idea.

    Ah I am never going to get anything done now… I already spend way too long sitting looking at this screen, now I’ll be sitting and looking at all that yummy food!…I’ll have to set a timer ;)

    How do you dry out your lemon skins? Do you use the stove? I tried to dry some oranges last Christmas but succeeded in charring them to a crisp!

    what a smart idea!
    way to use the whole fruit.
    the cubes would be perfect for plopping in a hot cup of ginger and honey tea as well :)

    Yummo! I am in a major cooking slump these days. We are moving next week so I am trying to sneak by with buying as few groceries as possible, but it’s not working out so well. Look forward to seeing how the recipes go!
