Dinner at Kristin's

Our friend Kristin had us over for a great dinner tonight. Our wine was a great rosé. The starter was cold cucumber soup. She roasted lamb. Side dishes were roasted zucchini, roasted carrots with yogurt & harissa, and orzo salad with feta. Dessert was buttermilk panna cotta with fresh cherries and maple syrup.

Jazz Up That Soup!

I have a cold. No energy to made homemade chicken soup. So, what to do? I heated up some Progresso chicken noodle soup, but that's so boring. Why not add a couple of pinches of Herbes de Provence I bought in France? Sure! And some fresh garlic slivers? Yes! And a poached egg? Of course! I feel better already!

Soup For a Friend

A friend is home recovering from stomach problems, so I cooked her a batch of easy-to-digest chicken & rice soup. This is only half of it; and she can thin it with chicken broth if she wants to.

Dinner Last Night & Lunch Today

Last night, I roasted a couple of salmon fillets in the oven. Very simple. Just salmon, salt, pepper, olive oil, and heat. With it, I roasted a brochette of onions and two colors of summer squash.
Today, I had leftover roast salmon served chilled. Still delicious! We finished the squash and onions last night, so, for a side, I sliced radishes and topped them with a yogurt/za'atar/lemon sauce.
