Switching things up...

After taking a little time off from "Friday Night Dinners", it has become clear to me that blogging the day after, was becoming a JOB!  In the past month or so I find myself throwing together dinners and enjoying the carefree-ness, of not worrying about the exact measurements that I usually pay close attention to so I can put it in the blog! I plan to show you more food in less words, I hope you like it...

Here are some recent meals we've had...

Cauliflower soup with roasted Brussels sprouts and a drizzle of olive oil

Custard pie with braised rhubarb that was placed on after baking

Homemade ravioli with eggplant (roasted, pureed then slow roasted to concentrate the flavors) mixed with ricotta cheese.  Over a bechemel-Stilton sauce, topped with toasted pine nuts

A big slice of feta cheese coated in flour, egg wash and almond flour then seared, served with cherry yellow tomatoes cooked Agra Dulce with a Julienne of basil and green olives.  Sourdough toast

Caramel sauce that turned out too thick so I made caramels instead

Carrot and ginger soup with homemade chicken stock and finished with a little cream and butter, topped with scallions

Arugula salad with alfalfa sprouts, tomatoes and house made croutons made with day old bread.  Left over roasted eggplant, zucchini, summer squash, tomatoes and onions pureed with eggs and bread crumbs and baked in a flax seed, millet, almond flour, olive oil and lemon zest crust
