We have a huge pomegranate tree in our back yard. Yesterday, Cyrous was kind enough to go out and harvest some of them for us. I usually wait too long, and the squirrels and birds get them before I get a chance to pick them. I've always loved them, and as a kid was fascinated by the ruby red seeds. I went on You Tube yesterday to get ideas on the best way to take the seeds out and juice them. I kinda like the method where you throw all the seeds in a blender and then strain them. I may try this, or I may just sit with a bowl and and eat them. I happened to capture the morning sun on them, and I think they are gorgeous!
Last night, for a quick fun dinner, I made "smashed potatoes." Caitlin isn't fond of mashed potatoes, so I made these very simple yet tasty red potatoes. I had seen this done in several magazine, and food blogs, and always wanted to give it a try. Just steam some red potatoes, when done, place them on a cookie sheet. Let them cool a bit, then smash them with the bottom of a glass.
Drizzle with olive oil and season. I roasted them at 400 until they were crispy. I also turned them in the middle of cooking.
A different take on sausage with potatoes! Our Whole Foods had the most yummy sausages yesterday, in their case: Turkey, cranberry , and apple! I just sauteed it with red peppers and purple onions.
Hope this gives you an idea for a week day dinner!
