Every year, as I and my brothers grew up on the farm, our parents would take us on an annual pilgrimage up the hill to another town. We would go to the only Chinese restaurant in the entire region to celebrate their anniversary. That was as exotic as it got, back then.
Fry meatballs slow cooker, in a pan until golden brown. Boil 4-5 cups of water then add the broccoli. Add the potatoes to the frying pan with the beef. Mix everything together in the pot, add pepper and serve with the brown rice.
Poulsbo is home to several great restaurants all within a block or 2 of your boat. That's a Some Italian Ristorante has very good Italian fare with some of the lowest priced bottles of wine you may ever find on a restaurant menu. Bottles are also available for sale at 10% off in their wine store. Mor Mor Bistro on Front Street has some of the best Halibut Fish and Chips, served along with parmesan garlic fries, you may eat in the Northwest. Burrata Bistro is a new restaurant on Front Street that serves Italian fare and has some of the friendliest waitstaff in town. Be sure to try the pork meatballs as an appetizer along with the fresh foccacia bread, and for your main course the cannelloni is excellent. Try to save room for desert though that may be a challenge.
I cook for our family daily, two meals a day and when my son is home from daycare that turns into three meals a day. Same goes on the weekends, I cook breakfast, lunch and dinner from scratch. This results in leftovers that hang out in the fridge. Anyone with a fridge full of leftovers knows that odors can accumulate, which is why placing baking soda in the fridge is always recommended. I was skeptical at first that Ever Bamboo Fridge + Freezer Deodorizer would remove odors. After two days of use, both my husband and I noticed a significant change in the fridge odor. There was less food smell and just a clean, fresh scent that did not resemble leftover italian meatballs.
My contribution is to grow and maintain pot containers of each of these herbs, and keep them within slow cooker recipes for kids reach on the sunny deck outside the kitchen door. No reason not to keep a pot of basil handy in the kitchen during the winter, too. It's pretty easy to grow.
