fresh herbs (thanks Wheelie and Dad!)
What to do, what to do......
Cook, of course!
Jon made an amazing Sunday breakfast: fried eggs with tarragon on sourdough toast with Humboldt Fog goat cheese; sauteed red and yellow onions, kohlrabi and fennel; and a baby arugula salad with red onions, kohlrabi, fennel, yellow peppers and fresh mozzarella. Oh, and bacon for Jon.
I made a Couscous salad with peppers, carrots, apples, onions and dried cranberries
And we got to add to the lard collection in the fridge:
Look at all that bacon grease! From 4 STRIPS of bacon! That's 4 oz of lard, folks. Jon saves the grease from good bacon to chill and use as cooking lard. Apparently, it's actually better for you than butter..... but I'm not quite sold on that. I am sold on the flavor though. (Yes, I know, bad vegetarian!)
Also of note, that is Jon doing the dishes – and I caught it on film! It's like getting a photo of Bigfoot!
Ahhhh, but what a great gluttonous Sunday it was. The couscous was the perfect lunch for the week, the fridge is just about empty (I am finishing the milk by drinking lots of protein shakes... eggh) and we are almost away to a fantastic Oregon vacation filled with food, friends and of course, ROLLER DERBY!
