It was an unusual Week in Food that reminded me how easy it is to take our modern conveniences for granted. Here’s what it looked like, captured on my iphone.
Isabelle was behind this beauty: little gems, avocado, grapefruit, a shallot dressing. We served it with steak cooked on the grill (no dishes there).
This was my favorite “no sink” party trick: Blanch green beans in a pot of boiling water. Then cook pasta in that same pot. Make Butter, Egg, and Cheese pasta, also in that same pot. I think I have the makings of another cookbook here…”no sink” recipes.
We set up the fixings for DIY BALT Sandwiches last night (Bacon, Avocado, Lettuce, and Tomato) right on the kitchen butcher block. The bacon made up for all those salads.
I tried to stay out of the kitchen as much as possible, but did manage one new little idea: this festive Fourth of July dessert. Stay tuned for the recipe, coming your way soon.
How was your week in food?
P. S.. It being summer, My Week in Food is going on vacation for a few weeks. I hope to return with plenty of fresh inspiration gleaned from my adventures!
