The season is being itself, I'm happy to report. And the cooking, too, is timely. Here's a delicious meatloaf. Should be excellent leftovers. I followed the Ann Romney recipe in The NY Times with just a couple of additions (parmesan and spinach).
I hadn't made almond butter in a while, so today I did that. Yummy.
That's homemade English muffin toasting bread. Happily, there's lots of almond butter for lunch this week too...
... or is it take 4... hmmm... I don't know. In any case, I once again hosted the MFA Meet and Greet and a lovely time was had, I hope, by all. Here are some pics of the table and the various salads and things.
Everyone said they liked this salad best, so it gets to go first. Kale, roasted sweet potatoes, avocado, black beans, dates.
Next up, a salad based on one that Ellen and I had at The Rugby Grille at The Townsend Hotel. Mixed greens, chick peas, roasted radishes (the roasted-ness was my variation....), tomatoes, red onion, feta, and raspberry vinaigrette.
Next, what I call "Ellen's Salad" and she calls "My Salad!" Butter lettuce, watermelon, blueberries, cucumbers, olive oil, lemon.
And finally, something simple yet elegant. Arugula and spinach with grapefruit and toasted almonds. And my usual vinaigrette.
Oops. Almost forget: I grilled some asparagus. Nothing fancy about that, but it does photograph nicely.
