Every now and then it happens:
"blogger brain freeze"
I just can't seem to write anything....
and I feel a bit crazy with other commitments
all of which are good,
but take time.
Honestly, I thought I would run out of things to talk about,
a year and a half ago.
But this month I have,
hit the wall....
So I will resort to giving you a great little recipe
for my favorite
I am not a great cook by any means,
but I enjoy cooking....
Use this at your own risk!
A simple salad, paired with a rustic asparagus tart,
which you can get the recipe for here
makes for a wonderful dinner or lunch
I simplified the tart recipe,
but there are tons of simple tarts like this,
in just about every good cook book
I spin my garden greens
at least a couple of times in a salad spinner
and usually wash them again, right before I make a salad.
I am totally organic in the garden
so we have lots of visitors...
little bugs and dirt!
In a bowl or a jar combine:
zest from 1 lemon, meyer preferably (they are sweet)
juice from 1 lemon
3 tbl olive oil
1 tsp of your favorite vinegar ( I like balsamic)
pinch of salt and some pepper to taste
1 garlic clove passed through a garlic press
or 1 shallot finely minced ( I prefer the shallot)
1 tsp mayo
1 tsp Dijon mustard
use for your salad
or any other veggie
it's good on warm things too!
I want to take a minute too
to thank you
for all of the great comments that you leave
All of which I read and love!
I have not been able to devote as much time to the blog this last few weeks
So I apologize for missing some things.
back soon...I promise
with more good juicy stuff to talk about
