Hey all! Thanks for all the new visitors and don’t be afraid to comment! I love feedback and having a good discussion going! Sorry this is a quickie but Nate’s fam is coming into town and staying with us this weekend so I have to bust it here: doing this workout, heading to work, & home to
speed clean entertain!
Here’s a meal you can make when pressed for time! I was so proud of this salad. Not only because it tasted good but because it looked amazing! I’m definitely a visual person when it comes to food, fashion, destinations, art etc. so I
probably spent way too much time preparing this thing but it was worth it!
In the mix:
Mixed mesculun, 1 plum tomato, 1 julienned young green summer squash, 2 fried eggs, fresh basil from my herb garden
Dressing: 2 parts apple cider vinegar to 1 part extra virgin olive oil, 1tsp chipotle seasoning 1sp lime juice & chopped chives. I made about 1/2c (what can I say? I love my dressing).
I was so excited to use my new tool: the Kuhn Rikon Julienne Peeler I picked up from Sur la Table. I was lusting after a Japanese mandolin that was like $450…um Nate said no way haha! This $20 gadget was much more in our price range. Maybe someday I can have a super seski mandolin and this collection: someone buy this for me haha.
1. Favorite tool in the kitchen?
2. Have you splurged on something that cost way more than you think it should to prepare food?
