I’m so thankful some people are picky eaters! A few years ago we attended a wedding reception, and sat at table with several people we didn’t know. The first course of the dinner was a tiny bowl of lobster bisque. Some people don’t like seafood! Hooray! I got to eat their soup course, which totally made my evening.
Salmon is one of the quickest, simplest, healthiest foods to prepare. And I prepare it often! Obviously! There are so many salmon recipes on my blog that I’ve considered renaming the it “The Salmon Concerto”.
There are some things I love about food blogs: the writing is captivating, the photography is stunning and can cause me to wipe drool from my chin, and the recipes creatively use ingredients in new and unusual ways. But let’s get real here! That is not the way I cook on a daily basis. Nor is it the way my family wants to eat regularly. Seriously! Pickle Brine Chicken Tortilla Soup???
I have always been a sucker for seafood. One of the beauties of traveling is experiencing the freshest local catch – prepared simply, and served steaming hot.
“Kristina i Köket” is still waiting to be picked up by Swedish television :), but I have certainly enjoyed days of shopping, visiting friends, and sharing delicious meals with my daughter in Sweden.
This has been “one of those weeks”. Too much going on. Not enough getting done. Too little energy. Not nearly enough sleep. And no groceries in the refrigerator because I don’t have time to shop. Am I alone in this situation???
Years ago, while visiting the Seattle area for a music conference, we ate at a most impressive restaurant in Redmond, Washington. The Celtic Bayou is a mash-up of Irish pub food and Louisiana cajun dishes. Strange combo, but incredibly successful.
I can’t help it. I’ve never been to Manhattan, and any time spent on the East Coast was when I was very young. BUT I have wonderful memories of making friends in Maine, eating fresh seafood every day, and Dad coming back with huge stories after spending a day on a lobster boat. My take-away from that trip? CLAMS. Steamed, stewed, or chowdered. Clams are the best.
Today has been “one of those days”. I was too busy (also known as “too distracted”) to think about making supper, and when my tummy began rumbling, the last thing I wanted to do was COOK.
Different cultures celebrate New Year’s Day on different dates – anywhere from January to October. BUT — why not celebrate a new every day? If you use nice dishes, light a candle, and share a meal with someone you love, every day is a holiday.
