Ok so I have some good for me/bad for you kind of news…don’t worry it will be ok…I am going to scale back on the blog. Now I know this might make a few of my loyal readers sad but I can assure you that it won’t be forever. My actual job (the one that pay me $$) is getting really busy right now and I just don’t have time to commit to 3+ posts a day so I need to stretch things out a little and reduce. I am going to try this and see if it helps get me back to a place of sanity. Mr. Smith is getting tired of having a wife with a glazed over look on her face by 6pm everyday, so it is time to scale back.
Now on to the fun stuff from this week. Warning it might make you very hungry.
Last night I had the pleasure of being treated to a delicious meal by my girlfriend Christy. I’ve blogged many times about her amazing skills in the kitchen and last night was no exception. Christy is always trying new things and introducing me to exotic ingredients.
Here was the menu last night:
Roasted Tomato and Garlic Bruschetta, Garlic Scape Pesto, Roasted Artichoke with Lemon Basil Aioli, A Breakfast Pizza, and Prosciutto and Sage Wrapped Asparagus.
Yes, I got spoiled.
One of my favorite components of this spread was the bruschetta, it had the most interesting salty, sour, spicy flavor. I got the recipe for your enjoyment:
Roasted Garlic and Tomato Bruschetta
(there are not real measurements for this just use the quantity you like)
Grease a baking sheet with olive oil
Place a few smashed garlic cloves and cherry tomatoes on it.
Add saly, pepper and red pepper flakes
Drizzle with a little more olive oil
Roast at 350 for 25 min.
Remove from the oven and spritz with meyer lemon infused grapeseed oil (this is the secret ingredient)
Add freshly chopped basil and serve.
Also this week I planned out my menu for my upcoming supper club meet up next week. I am up first to host and will be making:
Fricassee de poulet a l’ancienne
(Old-fashioned chicken fricassee with wine-flavored cream sauce, onions, and mushrooms)
Lastly, I wanted to share with you this awesome picture of Dana Point Harbor that Mr. Smith took:
