Wish I had a cookie!

Since it’s BOGO at Lund’s & Byerly’s this week, I kept the main dishes uber easy and supplemented with a few make-ahead salads. Now that Avery and Alec are home during the day, we are going through a lot of cookies! Avery likes to help bake, so I don’t mind 😉

Our CSA, Hogsback Farm, started up again this week. So a box of locally grown vegetables supplemented our grocery store shopping. I made Pea Shoot Pesto (you could easily substitute arugula or basil for the Pea Shoots, but they bring a really unique flavor–more grassy and less punchy than regular pesto). I used it to make pesto pasta with 4-spice rub grilled chicken and then had some left to use on salami/fresh mozzarella sandwiches. I also used the pac choi and rapini (a kind of green) in a quick and easy stir fry with shrimp and udon noodles.
