I know I have far too many cookbooks and cooking magazines. My sister loves food magazines, too, but she is capable of tearing out the recipes she wants and tossing out the rest. I ache to do that but I cannot. I admire her for this quality. I quiz her about it. How can she not want the amazing photos and what if she needs something else in the magazine...but she remains firm and ruthless. I wish I could be this way. Maybe some day I will be strong like my sister.
Tonight's dinner comes from my new cookbook. There is a lovely Salad Nicoise chilling in the refrigerator. I spent much of the morning cooking fresh tiny green beans and farm fresh hard boiled eggs. I made a dressing from scratch and tiny fingerling potatoes are ready for roasting.
It was fun and it is healthy and fresh and organic.
And I am all done...that is the best part. The kitchen is in order and I am relaxing with my laptop and my Kindle.
What are you making or doing for dinner tonight?
Plus...technically...doesn't a salad for dinner mean you can have ice cream for dessert?
Hurray for ice cream!!!
