Hot Dog Ragu

Yeah, this sounds like something off of an extra crappy Food Network show, but we had some leftover veggie dogs and wanted some protein to go with some pasta sauce.
Hot Dog Ragu

We’ve done ragus before, so I don’t think we need a full recipe, but this once included the following:

2 veggie hot dogs, chopped
1 red onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, smooshed
a bunch of heirloom tomatoes from my aunt’s garden (the subject of a later post)

We served it over spiral pasta with a blue cheese biscuit on the side. Tina made the biscuits, incorporating a leftover lump of cheese that was starting to get a little questionable.

You can do it too!

I just found this hilarious and fabulous video of British comedian George Egg cooking things in his hotel room.


This Week’s Receipt

I think we got a lot of good stuff this week.  I am particularly excited about doing something with the blackbeans and avocado…

Last night we had the last of the spelt berries and I am a big fan.  If you haven’t tried them, I highly advise seeking them out.  They have an excellent chewy texture that makes a lovely side dish or you can throw them in a salad for some extra punch.  Must. Buy. More!

We’ve got $5.67 left.

30/W was our of town for the weekend. We’ll have new material up shortly on subjects such as:

– My aunt’s heirloom tomatoes, secreted back from St. Louis in our carry-on luggage.
– Our discovery of wheat berries.
