Hip, hip, HOORAY! It’s another vegetable flatbread recipe! We are on a little bit of a flatbread kick, but can you blame us? They are easy, delicious, and super fun to make. Last week we were talking roasted shallots & pomegranates, today it’s all about the vegetables. The more the merrier I say! Scroll down & see what’s for dinner tonight – xoxo, LK
Hello beautiful people! Constance here. I hope you all had the most magical fall weekend! I must confess, I got so excited about all things fall/winter/holidays that I accidentally started listening to Christmas music this weekend. Am I ashamed? Nope.
Living in the desert has made me realize that I have to change things up a bit to make the most of the holidays. That means start early and go all out! Really getting ahead of myself in several ways here. I may be blaring my Ella Fitzgerald holiday station all the live long day, but I’m definitely still celebrating fall. Since we don’t really have much changing of the leaves here in the desert, I’m getting my color fix from all of the beautiful fall veggies from our neighborhood farmers market. Example? Our newest little flatbread creation!
