Smoked Mackerel pate with toast and pickled onions inspired by Row 34
Lamb marinaded in a spicy yogurt sauce and grilled to a perfect medium rare.
Skirt steak is marinaded in black cherry and grilled perfectly for a sweet and sour taco filling. Shrimp ceviche is a refreshing app to go with it.
Freshly made thick cut french fries are smothered in a thick New England clam chowder. It\’s a poutine chowder mash-up!
I’m not a huge seasonal eater in terms of dishes. Fruits and veggies, totally, but I could eat super hearty savory comfort dishes mid summer and have no problem with light salads in the middle of the winter. The only thing I can’t do is soup during the hot days of July and August. It’s just too much! That’s why I am thrilled there is finally a nip in the air again and I can start eating big bowls of warmth. I’m not gonna promise an epic run of Soup Mondays again this year, but I will promise tons of creative soup ideas for the next 9 or so months! Today’s soup is filled with everything that I happened to be craving a few days ago. I am also short a limb for a few weeks due to a surgery, so I wanted to make this one nice and easy so some friends could do the bulk of the work on a Sunday afternoon without missing out on much needed hang-out time.
Normally at dinnertime I don’t like eggs to be the main thing that I am eating. I love them in my dinner, just not as the focal point. For example, I wouldn’t want to eat just eggs and bacon, or an omelet for dinner, but toss a fried egg on top of a burger, or crack a few eggs into a stir fry, and i’m all over it! This meal however, changed my whole perspective on eggs for dinner. I wasn’t super excited for it, because of my weird eggs-for-dinner hang up, but it was one of the most satisfying dinners I have had in a long time.
