Drop what you’re doing and go make this recipe! Seriously-go right this minute (or after work) and gather all the ingredients if you don’t have them.
I came across this delicious recipe while on one of my shopping adventures to Market Street. You know how some grocery stores have those little recipe cards by the produce and meats, well that’s where I found it. It does call for half and half but I knew I could sub it with something else (I did half with almond milk and half with coconut milk, and they both worked).
The funny thing is, I’m not really a sage fan-or didn’t know that I was til I cooked with it. We even had a sage plant in our garden, that Emma would occasionally snack on, but I eventually pulled it since I didn’t know how to use it. Lesson learned…especially since I’m getting ready for our spring garden in a couple of weeks.
I’ll admit it, when I stumble across a recipe, I usually just scroll down to the actual recipe passing by all that mumbo jumbo-ain’t nobody got time for that. That’s not to say I don’t love to read the blogger’s story beforehand, but now that I’m dealing with 2 kiddos, I need to use my time
to feed my face wisely. This would be a good side dish to bring to a new mom or someone recovering from a surgery, etc. Be sure to make extra so you’re not tempted to eat it all.
