This week was my first time commuting to work for the entire year! I am excited to get back to school, even though it means more prep cooking and less hot meals from my kitchen. I am ready for in-person interactions again!
I also made lamb stuffed peppers, which were good. I realized I am not a huge fan of lamb, but I used the leftovers to make a meat sauce that was delicious! The sauce reminded me of a lot of recipes my father made when I was young because most dishes started with a base of sauteed onion, garlic, and ground beef. This was economical, delicious, and how my father learned to cook from his parents in Iowa. I plan on looking more into these recipes from my childhood to connect my cooking style now to the food of my family.
Other than this culinary discovery, I had some food at restaurants and recipes that I use regularly. I was a wonderful week of old and new culinary traditions.
