Day 203: Baked Bison Rotini
I realize there was nothing about today that called for baked pasta. It was 30 degrees outside by 10 am, and is still so hot I have to intermittently go outside and stand in W’s kiddie pool to cool off. But yesterday when an avalanche from the freezer almost crushed Lou it became apparent that we needed to free up some space. Even our ice cube trays were displaced, and today ice could have come in handy. So the first thing that I took out (or rather kind of fell out) was a ziplock baggie of bison and blueberries that I had cooked up before we went away. I thawed it, stirred in the last of the canned diced tomatoes from Vij’s curry, some tomato sauce sauce and boiled some whole wheat rotini. The usual Willem Chow. But then it got cold and he didn’t eat it, and I had gone and made way too much, so I left it all in the skillet, sprinkled it with some cheese and baked it just long enough to rewarm the innards and melt the cheese. I had to turn it on to bake a Key lime pie for tomorrow morning anyway, so at least we got dinner out of it.

Hey Julie – love the blog! I love food and enjoy getting ideas from your site. I listened to you on CBC this morning (as always) and just have one little thing that I need to correct you on. You said that kiwis don’t grow on the Island (when you were speaking about the fruit in the salsa that goes with the fish tacos) but I have to tell you that you are wrong. My parents have a little piece of land just outside of Nanaimo and they have a lovely kiwi plant/bush/tree that grows great little kiwis. They are much smaller than the ones that are at the grocery store but they are pretty darn yummy! Anyways, thanks for the story about SOBO. I’m heading out to the Island this week for a visit and am going to try to get to Tofino, just to try the food (and maybe to enjoy the West Coast…)
I stand corrected! You know, as it was coming out of my mouth I wondered if someone out there was growing some sort of kiwi.. you just never know! But then sometimes you don’t have time to speculate on these things! And I’m fairly sure hers come from elsewhere.. I’ll have to ask!
Thanks for the info – they sound wonderful. I wish I could grow kiwi in my back yard!
