Something Old, Something New

by Meghann on November 11, 2008

I hope everyone has been enjoying their Tuesday off. I have been editing and merging contact lists all morning. L Boo…. I would much rather be outside enjoying this amazing weather we’re having. The sun is shining bright and the wind is blowing calmly, I wish there was a way to move my desk outside to take advantage of it. Sigh

 

This morning while I was editing and merging, I had a great snack of Smoked Turkey Meat and Kashi Crackers.

I made little Kashi, Turkey sandwiches. Yum.

 

The main element for lunch today was ‘something old’ I heated up some leftover Acorn Squash Lasagna from Sunday night.

On the side I went for ‘something new’

I am not sure what these little babies are called. I’m pretty sure the sticker is proclaiming a shortened version for what they are officially called. I have seen Maggie eat them for dessert on her blog, so when I saw them at the store I decided to give it a shot. So I cut it up today and put it on the side of the Lasagna to bulk my lunch up just a tad.

I probably could have let the fruit sit out to ripen a little longer. (I was not sure how firm it had to be to eat, so I just guessed.) But, it does have potential. I was almost expecting it to taste like a tomato, but it almost had the same sweetest as an apple, but with an odd texture to it. I will have to buy one another time and try to cook with it. It would probably make some killer salsa. J

 

It will be a fun night in the kitchen tonight as I attempt to create my BSI recipe for the week. The idea actually came to me in my weekly meeting with my supervisor yesterday. I wonder if she noticed when I started jotting down random notes about Sweet Potato? Hmmm… nah.

Love the lasagna!!

**You ate a persimmon as the “something new” 😀

Good luck with the rest of your day – hope you can get some sunshine soon!!

It is a persimmon and i love them! If you let it ripen a bit longer (soft to touch), it will taste really sweet and is great paired with greek yogurt.

I am also working (umm…procrastinating?) today, if that makes you feel better.

Yay for persimmons! Yeah, I like to let them get pretty soft before eating them. I used to make this really good silken tofu dip with PB and apple butter and I haven’t made it in forever but it’s on my blog somewhere… and It goes really well with them.

Have a great day 🙂

that lasagna is food porn-quality!! ooh, i first tried a persimmon last year! yeah, best to get pretty soft, and fuyu is a variety, there’s also hiyacha i think, but you’re not supposed to eat the skins of those if i am remembering correctly 🙂

wow, that lasagna looks even better the second time around!! I’ve never tried a persimmon, I wouldn’t know what to do with it, haha. Hopefully I’ll see them at the farmers market and get to ask someone

I don’t like persimmons. I tried a sample at the Farmer’s Market last week and didn’t think it was sweet enough. Glad you tried something new 🙂 that’s fun!

8 Allison November 11, 2008 at 2:39 pm

I think you ate a persimmon! 🙂

9 Rose November 11, 2008 at 2:58 pm

That lasagna still looks as good as the first time you ate it!

10 Erica November 11, 2008 at 3:03 pm

I always see strange produce at the store I want to try! I need to just go for it and start buying them!

11 Tra November 11, 2008 at 3:03 pm

yum! i love persimmons! especially those ones..you can eat them like apples, but i let them get a little softer…and then it’s like sweet and soft and delish!

12 HangryPants November 11, 2008 at 3:42 pm

I have sweet potatoes on the mind, too!

Lasagna looks so good even as leftovers.

13 A+M November 11, 2008 at 4:09 pm

We’re having sweet potatoes for part of our dinner tonight! (made in the crock pot!!)

I love persimmons. They’re so good if you leave them out for a week.

I’m stuck at work today 🙁 I didn’t realize a lot of people had the day off. Boo.

16 Amy November 11, 2008 at 4:42 pm

Yeah, i thought it was a persimmon! Sounds unique and tasty. Im excited to see your BSI recipe! Good luck surviving the rest of your work day.

persimmon persimmon persimmon!!! i actually really don’t like them, lol, but my mom has loved them FOREVER. hehe…i think for them to be ripe they need to be a little soft at the touch…kinda like a kiwi or a peach. 🙂

can’t wait to see your bsi!

18 Erin November 11, 2008 at 6:44 pm
