Last night the Prophet and I had a sub-par meal out. Today, I set out to put together a meal that would be the antithesis of the last night's meal.
Roasted Heirloom Tomato Soup with Prosciutto Toasts
I was not thrilled with the Brandywine tomatoes I got in this week- no flavor. And this is the problem with the "heirloom" trend: they are now domesticated like other tomatoes and have achieved that lowest common denominator effect. The Red-Gold Stripes, however, carried the day and Christmas was saved.
Long Bean and Dungeness Crab Salad with Roasted Beets, Parsley-Almond Salsa Verde
Not the Mexican salsa verde, the Italian one (more like a heavy herb vinaigrette with a little anchovy). I love this sort of salad in the summer. Very light dressing, crisp veg, no dairy.
Grilled Local Halibut with White Balsamic Marinated Roast Peppers on Olive-Pistachio Couscous
Lousy camera- by the time it was ready to go, the sauce had all run on the plate. I hate that.
Go in Peace
