One-Armed Saga of Simple Meals Continues
Another silver lining... my family
In addition to my daughter, Sharron, taking time to fly in from Montreal for a few days, there has been lots of help from those here.
Grilled Flank Steak with Honey Soy Marinade. The meat from my very good friends at Getaway Farms. I don't feel comfortable jostling crowds on Saturday mornings yet, but I will be visiting during the week for more ingredients my Honey can cook.
Which leads me to yet another silver lining - my daughter, Joanna brought the family over for a Friday night Shabbat dinner, complete with homemade challah, a Pumpkin & Apple Soup (sorry no recipe), Romaine Salad with a lovely sun-dried tomato vinaigrette, a "side" dish.. I use the term loosely... of Pasta with Kalamata Olives, feta and some of the tasty Marinara Sauce Sharron made, plus simple Roasted Salmon (similar to this one) so that we could have lots left over.
And yet another silver lining... working together in the kitchen with my Honey - I love our new arrangement!. He's always done a mean BBQ and an awesome Sunday morning French Toast, but normally I have done the cooking and he's been master of the clean up. So far we've done a number of Scrambles and some great dinners together, like...
Creamed Salmon on Toast - one of my favorite childhood comfort foods and
This cooking together I'm hoping will continue long after the cast comes off. I'll keep you posted on our cooking adventures. Now go off and think of some of your own silver linings.
