The Dish

Blogging sure is difficult when your home doesn’t have internet yet! I foresee a few afternoons of writing posts at Starbucks until I can get an appointment with the internet provider. However, I am all moved in and really enjoying my new place!

My mother refers to her LC pieces as "jewelry for the kitchen."

Since my mom so generously helped me relocate earlier this week, I knew that a very special thank you and Mother’s Day gift was in order. My mom and I are both Le Creuset fanatics, and as soon as I saw their new Marseille line, I fell in love with the brilliant blue color. To make this gift even more special, I decided to splurge on the limited edition mariner star dutch oven. The company is only producing 1,925 of these, and my mom is now the proud owner of #854! I know I’m a few days early on the whole Mother’s Day thing, but I simply couldn’t wait to give it to her. If you’re still looking for a last minute gift for mom, I highly recommend you check out Le Creuset.

This contraption is so cool!

As I mentioned in last week’s Dish, I love trying out new things with my spiralizer. While I was searching for new recipes, I happened upon this kale and sweet potato vegan caesar salad. I am totally hooked! The cashew dressing sounds a little odd, but it is surprisingly flavorful. I usually end up making extra to keep in the fridge for spicing up some romaine. If you don’t have a spiralizer, (or your daughter has stolen it) you can just dice the sweet potato instead. Here’s the link to the recipe:

I love the colors in this dish.

I decided to forgo the roasted chickpeas this time around and added some blackened shrimp instead.

Well, that’s all for this week’s Dish, folks! Enjoy your weekend and give your mother lots of love on Sunday!
