Sliced & Diced: Is Coming Back!
Those of you that have been around for awhile will remember a series I started called Sliced & Diced. The point of Sliced & Diced is to help us get some equivalents and yields on commonly used foods for our once a month cooking menus. After all, on our grocery list we need to buy whole produce, but by the time we get to the recipe cards it is all chopped up and goes into multiple recipes. We need to know how many cups/Tablespoons/teaspoons comes from those products. Thus, Sliced & Diced.
True, there are sites like Gourmet Sleuth and About.com that have some equivalents and yields but I find that they aren’t always complete data needed for our menus. So I am reintroducing Sliced & Diced in hopes that we can dig into some new products we commonly use.
And as always, I would love for you to link up your recipes that correspond to that week’s Sliced & Diced item. So there will be a linky (a bit of a carnival) for you to relate relevant recipes. And for those of you that don’t have blogs, I will be introducing unique ways for you to share your recipes as well! So stay tuned.
In the meantime, I thought I would give you a heads up as to what items we would be tackling in the coming weeks so you can get your recipe posts ready. As always, we ask that you follow these guidelines for linking up:
- Link up to http://onceamonthmom.com and/or this series on your blog post including the indicated ingredient. (Yes, you can go back and add a link to already posted relevant posts that you would like to link.)
- On Saturdays, come on over and link up that recipe in the weekly linky. (Be sure to link directly to the post, not your blog home page.)
- Be kind and visit at least one other link on the list!
Okay, so here is the upcoming schedule for you to ready yourself:
15 – Asparagus
21 – Strawberries
28 – Black Beans
4 – Bacon
11 – Jalapenos
18 – Carrots
