I do not consider myself a Foodie...but, perhaps a growing one.....
We had some dear friends to dinner last night. I planned the menu for weeks.
Appetizers were fresh homemade French bread with Brousse cheese drizzled with garlic oil, and spicy walnuts and pecans...
Dinner was Porchetta, roasted carrots and potatoes, arugula and mache salad with pomegrante seeds and more homemade French bread
Dessert was Cardamon cake with whole poached pears & white chocolate
Does this make me a Foodie? Perhaps.
I had so much fun, though there was a lot of work.....
The dinner cooked faster than the recipe said, guess my oven is working a little too well. But, all in all, very yummy.
The pork belly came from the Farmer's Market at So. Co, from Dave the butcher. It was a bit expensive, but when it comes down to it, I really liked the idea of knowing the farmer and butcher in Dave. His meats are all excellent and I recommend his products.
This morning we had some leftovers for breakfast. Hubby loves breakfast!
Does all this make me a Foodie?? Perhaps.
I know that this is the year that I am experimenting with different recipes and cuts of meat. So far, this was a winner and will address again......later. It is a rich and yummy cut (afterall it is where bacon comes from), and I don't think it is a good thing to eat before a cholesterol test....humm...
What do you like to cook?
Have a great weekend.
