Turkey Kale Noodle Bowl

I am a big fan of Asian-inspired rice bowls but my noodle-loving daughters look wistfully at the Tinkyada brown rice linguine noodles hanging out next to the jar of jasmine rice. So I took pity and whipped up a Thai inspired NOODLE bowl which resulted in smiles and second helpings.

End-of-Summer Shrimp and Green Bean Salad

Serve with skillet cornbread-

For most of us, the beginning of September marks a transition to a new season, even though temperature-wise it may still feel like summer. Our kids are back in school, most of the local summer fruit and vegetables easily found at most farmer’s markets are starting to dwindle, and we start to feel more grounded. What I love most about this recipe, besides being so darn good, is that it transitions our taste buds from summer’s abundance (the green beans and basil) to fall and winter’s sustaining comfort foods (cornbread). Transition and change is a good thing!
