Okay, it's been a busy couple of weeks for me, and I haven't had much time to cook, much less post.
But I was inspired by my friend Brianne. She just traveled all over the U.S. and Europe and blogged about what she did and, most importantly, what she ate.
Some of the meals she ate in Europe were so simple yet sounded so delicious, featuring local produce, cheeses, breads, etc. Very Alice Waters—local ingredients at their peak prepared simply.
So I made a very simple lunch of Russian banana potatoes (which I had to buy just based on the name), a freshly hard-boiled egg (still warm!), a sliced heirloom tomato with salt and pepper, some blackberries, and a few pieces of cheese. The potatoes were boiled and then tossed with some local butter, salt, pepper, and garlic chives.
The meal was delicious. If only I had eaten it in Paris.
