Greek dressing and Gnocchi
I may have a little future foodie on my hands. I’m not holding my breath but Jojo has been showing some interest in the food areas lately. She has become my very helpful shopping partner on Saturdays and today I convinced her to make her own gnocchi instead of the frozen variety.
Once the gnocchi was done she somehow convinced her sister to help bake up a batch of cookies. I’m proud to say, this was the first time the teenagers baked on their own 100%! Being a bit of a control freak, I struggled to stay out of their way, but in the end the only thing I insisted on was that they use whole wheat flour……and to clean up afterwards.
At least they used whole wheat.
While shopping, Jo and I picked up some Australian sheeps milk feta. Instead of hard and crumbly, this feta was creamy and very rich. Still nice and salty though. She decided on a Greek salad but with no olives. I tried to explain to her that no olives does not a Greek salad make. Steve hates them as well and so I lose. Here is their semi Greek salad.
In a blender add…
1 small avocado
the juice of 1 small lemon
1 tsp salt and pepper
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp hot pepper sauce
1 tsp mustard
1 tbsp olive oil
Blend until smooth.
Not a bad day of cooking for a 13-year-old! Nice job Jojo.
