Week 15

Matzo brei is a staple of Passover eating. I prefer it savory. I’ve heard people make it sweet and that weirds me out.

Week 15

Did some baking for the bake sale at the bout. One hundred thirty-five raspberry macaroons. That’s a lot of egg whites.

Week 15

Breakfast home fries with leftover potatoes. Also, I’m the master of fluffy eggs.

First post-Passover breakfast. I think I ate two bagels that morning. Yum…carbs…

Week 15

It’s finally warm! Our daffodils are blooming!

Week 15

I went to Boston for work. I also got to see the Jackster.

I want to get Andrew some fashion sneakers. Figured I could get some good deals on New Balance sneakers since they are made in the town I used to live in, but they didn’t have anything that Andrew liked…

Week 14

We kicked off the week with some Passover fun! There is so much I love about this photo. Thanks for taking it Ella!

Week 14

We had this crazy beet tartare salad that sort of looked like a giant raw hamburger on the plate. It tasted good though, I promise! I think the best part was the roasted pecans. Andrew did good!

Week 14

This is what you get when you go out to eat on Passover.

And this is what you have for breakfast the next morning. Mimosas are totally kosher for Passover!

Week 14

We had an extra chicken sitting around so we roasted it along with a mountain of vegetables.

Lots of Passover baked goods call for a lot of egg whites. So what do you do with the yolks? Make lemon curd!

Week 14

Fun fact: chia seeds are kosher for Passover. I made some strawberry chia jam. Too bad we couldn’t put it on biscuits.

Week 14

I went to Denver for the day for a work meeting. It seems silly to fly 2/3 of the way across the country for a four hour meeting. Oh well. I got to see my cousin though and that was awesome!

Week 14

Are you sensing a theme with our Passover dinners?

Sunday Night Dinner – Salmon and Ratatouille

Simmie Sunday Dinner Leave a Comment

SND - Salmon and Ratatouille

After a relaxing day enjoying the beautiful weather, Andrew and I headed down to Jen and Evan’s for dinner. We didn’t know what we were having, but in my head I was secretly hoping for something cooked on the grill because it was a perfect day for grilling.

We walked in the door and in the kitchen Jen and Evan were pondering the best way to cook a very large, very beautiful piece of salmon. Taking a page from Andrew’s parents, we told them to season it and wrap it in a pocket of aluminum foil and stick it on the grill to poach.

It worked like a charm. The salmon was seasoned with just some olive oil and hearty dash of salt and pepper. It was served with a butter lime sauce and was flaky and flavorful.

I thought we were having salmon and some vegetable for dinner, but then Jen turned a pulled this beauty out of the oven.

SND - Salmon and Ratatouille

Seriously, look at that! Her ratatouille was not only pleasing to look at, but it tasted great too. Apparently the way to eat ratatouille is serve it over couscous with a little bit of goat cheese. You mix the whole thing together and it no longer looks beautiful, but it tastes amazing. The creamy goat cheese mixed with the soft vegetables and the texture of the couscous is so good.
