Crimson and Clover, Over and Over

Herby-Turkey Taco Salad Bowl
If you have extra cilantro and herbs and a green apple, then a jalapeno herby salad is the perfect bed for ground turkey and pinto beans seasoned with cumin and chili powder.  Add chips and you have a satisfying bowl of hot and cold, crunchy and soft bits, with a little heat and the sweet bite of the apple.  
A Taco Salad - nothing new but surely worth making nonetheless.

Organic Basil Pesto with Peanuts
P brought home a giant bag of basil from his Urban Farming job. Even though I put a ton in the salad, I realized I had to make a pesto.  I only had peanuts instead of pine nuts but it turned out great, and to lighten the oil intake, I replaced half with chicken stock.  I had to do a taste test with some linguini and although it's best with all the extra fats, this was light and refreshing.  Prepared this way, it could be eaten at room temperature or chilled, like Chinese Peanut Noodles.
