Today is Meatless Monday and I know my kids are dreading it. I often hear "this would be great if it had meat in it". They do eat whatever I make, they're good about that, but, it's always a challenge for what to make for dinner. The good news is that Omega Olive Oil offers all kinds of lovely flavored olive oils to enhance whatever you're making, meatless or not. Lately I've been using ascolano extra virgin olive oil, which is a fruity, medium intensity olive oil with a mild pepper finish. Last night I made Shrimp Scampi with it and it was delicious. I only think now I should have taken a picture of it and now it's too late, because it's gone. Anytime I can bump up the flavors of whatever I'm making, I will use a really great olive oil to start and finish. Tonight I will be using it to make a curry with fall vegetables served over brown rice. I'll let you know how it goes.
