This week, I’ve decided to go back to being a total food snob. I’ve mostly succeeded. I had a piece of Croatian walnut roll that a coworker’s wife made, but that’s exotic enough to still be snobby! And I’ve been enjoying my nightly piece of Salazon chocolate: good-quality dark chocolate with sea salt. Here are some of the meals I’ve been enjoying as part of my snobby week.
Calvados-steamed salmon with roasted carrots and broccoli
Spinach pesto meatballs with roasted beet and fennel salad with lavender balsamic vinaigrette and shaved Parmesan
Breakfast: A baked organic potato with pastured butter, miso-nettle-ginger soup, and plain yogurt
Bacon and onion frittata with roasted beet salad with honey-mustard vinaigrette
Spinach Pesto Meatballs over salad with balsamic vinaigrette
As you can see, I’ve been putting a lot of effort into planning meals that are unique and have a blend of flavors that is complex but not overly busy. It’s all been so much fun, both to cook and to eat, and it’s given me plenty of inspiration for weeks to come.
