new foods for April... [Apr. 2nd, 2011|09:35 am]
Verminius Rex
Last night I had some new food items, for which I get April credit on my "New Food Every Month" goal for the year. It included (and is probably misspelled)

beef carpatio
fried artichoke with auoi
chicken with local mushrooms
beef over polenta

 And this morning I made eggs benedict, the first time in about 10 years I attempted it. Overall it was pretty good (English muffin, turkey bacon, poached eggs and a simple hollandaise sauce. I'll play around with the recipe in the future. Even Pari liked and ate it, although I served a deconstructed version to Kiyan. 

And this morning I made coffee for Marz in our new french press, which is the exact same size as an 8 cup Bodum press but is all stainless steel and made by Coleman for camping. This should prevent the bimonthly breaking of a glass press. The filter on the plunger was not the tightest, so I swapped out the one from the broken Bodum press and it was a perfect fit.

At least I spelled chicken and beef correctly.

And it's aioli, but I only found it with your starter spelling.

I think Panna Cotta is two words, and osso bucco was the meat dish over polenta. (Thanks to my mother for remembering that one. ) I'm guessing the chicken was a chicken piccata, because that sounds about right. Next time I'll snap a picture of the menu. :-)
