IMG_20130124_132636

If you love BLT’s you will love this little twist.  I present to you a BLPT, Bacon (turkey bacon in this case), Lettuce, Pear and Tomato.  I also decided to add some gorgonzola cheese.  I love cheese with fruit and even honey.  Okay so all you to do is pile it on and Toast it, grill it or even place it on a skillet. 

Ingredients:

1 Pear, sliced

1 Tomato, sliced

Lettuce, leaf broken in half

Rye Bread, 2 Slices

Butter, spread on bread (optional)

1/4 cup of gorgonzola cheese per sandwich (you can add less or more)

Turkey Bacon ( or vegan and real bacon)

Preparation:

Spread some butter on rye bread and pile all your ingredients on. Place on Grill, Skillet or Toast to get a nice golden crispy color.  Cut and enjoy with some Sweet Potato Chips.

Pumpkin Risotto and Stuffed Veal

I had my family over this past weekend and I decided to make a fall themed dinner. I made some pumpkin risotto and veal stuffed with pancetta and gorgonzola cheese with some sautéed garlic asparagus.  This risotto was filled with flavors of pumpkin.  I know it sounds weird but it’s totally worth trying out especially this time of year.  As Columbus day comes upon us a lot of people don’t know that Veal is the meat of choice for the celebration.  Veal is such a tender meat that can be done in so many ways.  I decided to stuff it this time around and it came out perfect.  So go get creative with some risotto and veal.  Enjoy!

Salad with Leftover Chicken

Did you ever wonder what to do with leftover chicken?  Well there are so many things.  You can shred the chicken and add it to tacos, or make some stir fry etc.  But the other day I decided to make some fresh homemade salad.  I added leftover chicken (I shredded the chicken), beets, romania lettuce, shredded carrots, purple cabbage, gorgonzola cheese, fresh garden tomatoes, red peppers, onions and chinese chow mein dry noodles.  I seasoned with apple cider vinegar, olive oil, salt and pepper.  It was super yummy, refreshing and healthy.
