I have to say I spent far less time photographing my food this weekend than I did just sitting back and enjoying it, and while that may not be great for the blog, it was just what the doctor ordered. Here’s a little sample of what our weekend looked like:
We enjoyed a midafternoon snack of duck mousse and wine to keep us going until our Thanksgiving meal at Dressler (he had the quail and venison; I had the artichoke and turkey – all of it was delicious).
Friday evening, a little Veuve kept our tradition of Fizzy Fridays going while we waited for dinner that night:
Bone-in Berkshire pork loin roast with a mix of Maille extra-hot dijon, garlic, salt, pepper, fresh rosemary, lemon zest, fennel seeds and olive oil (adapted from Ina Garten’s recipe), and served with a little classic risotto and sautéed green beans with pine nuts.
Expect the leftover roast pork to make a repeat appearance this week.
I got a big pot of no-frills chili going when we returned from Greenmarketing on Saturday, and made a batch of fish stock on Sunday, letting it slowly simmer away while I made plans for the coming week’s meals:
Mike and I have got some fun things planned for the coming weeks, and I can’t wait to share them with you. Stay tuned…
