Thoughts

I’ll be sure to check out the Chicory this week, and I’m looking forward to the Poblanos – I’d love to do a gluten-free Chile Relleno – perhaps baked instead of fried – along with some fresh farm salsa.

Harvest Time!

What’s Cooking

The chile rellenos are great – I take off the tops, insert some manchego cheese (not stuffed with it), oil them up a bit and bake them at 350. I’d like to see if I can get them a bit softer, but this is a super simple way to go and very tasty with some fresh farm salsa. Soaking some dried sprouted pinto beans for tonight.

  1. Hey Tyler thanks so much for including me in your updates. I know what a marvelous cook you are and every time I read something that you’ve put together I think “oh I should try that!” I’m not far from you but with all that’s going on we might as will be light years away. I’m in San Francisco where it is very foggy but all is well! Take care of yourself and AliSun…:) Marcia

      How lovely to hear from you Marcia! We are a world apart, even if its just 90 miles or so. What a shame, but as long as we are all safe and healthy, we’re good! Love and blessings…
