Spring Lunch Potato Mushroom Tart & Shaved Asparagus Mimosa Salad
That Spring inspired Shaved Asparagus & Fennel Mimosa Salad above was just the tip of my kitchen frenzy iceberg....
Finally, I seem to have re-found my cooking Mojo, I spent the morning whipping up a couple of new dishes from my latest issue of LCBO's Food & Drink, Early Summer Issue. Nothing quite says Spring to me more than asparagus and fennel root, so this salad was indeed a must try.
Savory Coriander, Rosemary & Pecan "Cookies" to keep him happy while waiting for the rest of the gang to show up. I so look forward to my F & D subscription arrivals in the mail!
Roasted Potato & Mushroom Tart more of a Fall & Winter dish, but one that tastes awesome any time of year, really.
101 Cookbooks, and fresh rhubarb from my daughter's Joanna's garden (I probably should have asked for double the amount of rhubarb, but I did get a couple of lovely jars... naturally Joanna will get one, since it is her rhubarb after all. I'm looking forward to spooning some over some vanilla ice cream. So much for dieting... perhaps I'll compromise and find low fat, sugarless ice cream...then again, who am I kidding!
Roasted Chicken Breasts with Ginger Marmalade Balsamic Glaze
Cauli-Fried Rice another old standby - a delicious alternative to the usual rice carbs. ... because it IS Monday and life is back in the fast lane... Everyone... strap on your watches!
