I have been remiss in posting to this blog very frequently – mostly because I’ve been so busy with my other blog. So thank goodness for #letslunch that keeps me coming back here! This month’s them is green food, I am assuming, in deference to St Patrick’s Day next weekend. Now, I just returned from vacation so I am trying to eat a bit on the lighter side – green is perfect for that.
One of my favorite vegetables is asparagus. I could eat it every day. But I don’t really care for it steamed - I prefer it pan roasted with a little olive oil, lemon juice and herbs de provence.
I also cooked up a little chopped maple smoked bacon and poached an egg to be the ‘sauce’ instead of something heavy like hollandaise. Don’t get me wrong, I love hollandaise but until my waistbands are comfortable again, I’m going to skip it.
Now there is a lot of debate about how to poach the perfect egg and frankly I don’t know who is right or wrong so I simply place the egg into hot water that’s just below simmering and add a little shot of white vinegar & let it do its own thing. I don’t whirlpool or crack it into a ramekin first but then I am inherently lazy. Mine turned out perfectly to my liking anyway. I’d love to hear how you do yours!
