Oh, happy Monday

July 30, 2007

Today was a pretty good day. I had a busy but productive day at work, and then came home to make this lovely dinner with my husband. It’s so fun to cook together…we turn on some tunes and start cooking. I chop stuff, he mixes stuff. I saute, he peels. And after it all, he cleans the kitchen. How did I end up with this amazing deal? I don’t know, but I’m grateful.

Anyway, the dinner. Delicioso. The sandwich has such a great mix of flavors, with pungent goat cheese and smooth avocado, plus the freshness of cucumber and tomato. And over it all, a lovely peppercorn dressing.

And then there’s the potato salad. I had some tiny red potatoes left from my last trip to the farmer’s market, so I decided to try my hand at potato salad. It was smooth and a bit tart, with a nice crunch from the celery and shallots, and was even nice a bit warm, as we had just cooked the potatoes and the eggs. I’m looking forward to the leftovers.

In other news, I finished Harry Potter the day after I bought it. I am sad to see the series end, but I’m pretty satisfied with the last book. Now I’m looking for another book to start on. I really need to catch up on my magazine reading, though…I have a stack of Gourmets and Saveurs that need to be read. And when lovely recipes like these come from their pages, I’m anxious to get started.
