Let's see, what did I do yesterday?
Nothing. Well, not completely nothing. I did wake up and go to the gym, but then came home and fell asleep on the floor for more then an hour and woke up in a puddle of drool. I also continued my binge watching of the Mindy Project so I can be up to speed when season 4 started tonight on hulu!!!!!. And I cut up a cantaoplue. That's a good amount of stuff for one day, right?
Anyway. even when I am gone from home for just a few day, I never really quite feel right when I get back until I cook something inn my kitchen.. So after my floor nap, I got up with a hankering for some of the juicy cantaloupe that I got from last weeks farm share (and forgot to stick in the fridge before we left so I came home to very ripe cantaloupe) Cut it into chunked, tossed with slightly toasted caraway seeds and then caramelized a bit more. Super fresh and clean and a very almost fall like way to eat the melon. And even though it took me about 4 minutes to do, it's all I needed to make me feel normal again.
Ah, home and food and Mindy.. Nothing better, Now to back doing stuff all day.
The stuff. Some cantaloupe and some caraway seeds.
Place caraway seeds into a dry skillet and place on the stove on high heat. While the seeds are toasting, remove seeds and rind of the cantaloupe and cut into mouth sized chunks and place into a bowl.
Once you hear the fist pop from the seeds, dump them in the bowl with the cantaloupe and toss around. Then dump the seed covered chunks back into the hot skillet.
Sear each side until browned.
And scoop it back into the bowl.
Eat right away. IF you want to get down with a scoop of yogurt on top or maybe a bed of some green, I think you should.
Enjoy you Tuesday my friends.
