This month, we welcome back Marta Rivera for more of her meal plans. Marta is a trained chef, mom of twins, and Army wife – and she is also one of our Simply Recipes recipe testers!
The French essayist, Marcel Proust, said, “The smell and taste of things remain poised a long time, ready to remind us…”
Obviously, what they remind us of is wrapped up in the event itself, and as we head into the week of St. Patrick’s Day, I can’t help but remember my journey through the heart of Ireland as a young culinary student.
No, I’m not Irish. (Though, my maiden name is Daly, so who knows?!) But the flavorful memories I have of the Emerald Isle always seem to resurface during this time of year. Fondly, my meal plan for this week is going to honor those memories.
By the way, when shopping this week, check out what varieties of potatoes and carrots your local grocery has to offer and try something new! There are so many varieties and colors available to us now that I like to experiment. Typically, if they are the same texture, or firmness, and the same size, they will substitute just fine.
