One of the food items that I have rediscovered is the Pita Pocket. When these are slightly warm, they are delicious. Over the weekend, I grilled several vegetables (portobello mushrooms, scallions, onions, asparagus) and I oven roasted carrots and Roma tomatoes. Each of the veggies was drizzled with olive oil and then sprinkled with salt & pepper.
As I was looking at the veggies, it seemed that chopping them up and making a salad out of them might be a really good idea. I used 1/2 cup of the chopped mixed veggies, a tablespoon of Italian salad dressing and 1 tablespoon of shredded parmesan cheese, mixed it all up, placed it in the pita and heated in a grill pan, heating on both sides until the veggies were warmed through and the cheese was slightly melted.
This turned out to be very tasty and a great way to serve up the veggies. The sandwich was light, yet filling.
Purple Kitchen Treats
Over the past few years, I have been working on a cookbook. During this time, I took time off to finish my Master's Degree. Now that I have accomplished that, I am working again on my cookbook, slowly but surely.
However, over the past few months, something interesting has happened...I have received multiple requests for baked goods, particularly my cookies. I am also receiving multiple requests for granola. So, with all these requests in mind, I have started to make my cookies for sale, along with my granola.
My official web site is available, but will be undergoing a significant redesign. Be sure to visit my "official" web site at: http://www.susanshonk.com and watch for some exciting changes.
