purple gurple



Didnt think of purple potato gnocchi did you? Uh huh, didnt think so. Did you think of it with a pumpkin and carrot pesto? mmmmhmmmm. Thems some colors! The smaller potatoes have more of a yam flavor and the larger ones are more like a russet so the combination of the two will add flavor and fluff. (can you read my little 'helpers')




I have some carrots that are not like other carrots too. These 'different' carrots will go into my pesto, and as I think it will be nothing more than a couli with a parsley pesto on the side. Close your eyes and imagine a purple gnocchi, with a multi colored couli of carrots saddled with a parsley pesto.....I'm diggin' it!

This is how the magic happens. These are my thoughts, now what say ye?

I bought the same carrots a few weeks ago, and they were so good, and I like the gnocchi idea. I won't wear purple, but I will eat it!

I would like to see ... carrot pesto? Your carrots are exciting - not boring orangy like the normal ones!

Hey- what happened to the next post? I was just going to say ;
I love it when you go all vulnerable and sweet! But I guess I'll have to wait for another of that kind of post. Not that I don't enjoy the heck out of the food of course :)
