I was talking with my friend Stephanie at work the other day about how some of the recipes I’d been posting developed a different personality as leftovers. She suggested a tidy little weekly summary post, cleverly titled AfterWords, to share any post-post thoughts.
For instance, for this week’s Roasted Vegetable Medley, I would have left out the jicama, which was good at the time when it came out of the oven but got too hard again when served the second day out of the microwave. Next time I’ll just save it to eat raw, since it was so crisp and sweet that way.
Going back bit further, the Ukranian Radish Salad just did not hold up the next day – too much liquid. When I make it the next time, I plan on lightly salting the radish slices and leaving them to drain in a colander for an hour or two before mixing up the salad. I’ll also reduce the sour cream to 3/4 cup if I’m not planning on consuming it all the same day.
Any of you that have tried the recipes I’ve posted have thoughts to add? Reviews are why I’ve switched almost entirely to online recipes as I feel it’s so helpful to have the tips that others share. So, please, please, sit and type about what would make something on this blog better!
