What's for Dinner?
I love to cook, but I really have to be in the mood before I knock myself out.
Tomorrow night I have a lady friend coming over to meet Baby Jake and break bread with me.
She's a very health-conscious eater, so I had to wrack my brain to find sensational food profiles without too much richness or too many calories.
Tell me what you think of the menu and see if I should add anything:
-Roasted chicken breasts Moroccan style, with preserved Meyer lemons and garlicky green olives
-Quinoa salad, served cold with green and red onions, parsley, toasted pine nuts and tiny grape tomatoes in a rice wine vinaigrette
-Fresh cherry crisp with organic oatmeal crumble
Okay, the cherry crisp has a bit of butter and brown sugar in it, but my guest is crazy for cherries and she'll eat them in a gasoline sauce as long as cherries are involved.
