From the Earth

Just because Earth Day was "officially" yesterday doesn't mean we can't carry it on into this week and have an extended celebration in our kitchens.  So with that in mind, head into the kitchen to create a dish with Rick that includes something grown in the earth such as fruits, vegetables, herbs, or berries (to start...).
Or maybe you'd like to choose something that is fed from the earth.  Or combine both.  The possibilities are endless.
How do you feel like honoring this amazing Earth that we live on this week?  Make your choice of Rick Bayless dish that includes food grown in or fed from the earth and bring it back here to share with everyone this week.  Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Make and post your From the Earth post by Sunday, April 29th. Don't forget to link your post of the week's with Mr. Linky below, so we can all enjoy your fabulous creation! Remember to leave a comment after, each week that you use Mr. Linky to link your post, just to be sure we don't miss anyone.

If you missed the Sauces and Salsas theme last week, be sure to head on over and see all of the delicious dishes everyone brought!  Don't forget, we're cooking through the recipes of Rick Bayless right if you've linked up, be sure that you've used/adapted one of his recipes for your post!

In honor of Earth Day, I "recycled" Rick's fabulous Roasted Tomatillo Salsa by using it in his simple and delicious Avocado Soup with Tomatillo and Orange. So good! (And green!)

Yay Earth!
I immediately thought of potatoes growing in the earth - so I made Rick's Roasted New Potato Salad with Poblano Mayo. Delicious!

Michelle B said...

Thanks so much re my spuds! They were delish and the leftovers made for great lunch-box fare.
