Random Weekly Bites

Here are some outtakes of good stuff cooked and eaten this week.

I had a great tartine (a small open face French style sandwich) at a nyc lunch chain called Le Pain Quotidien (The Daily Bread). There are 18 locations in NYC and I was pleasantly surprised by the delicious food and great pastries.
I had an amazing egg salad tartine made w/ olive oil, instead of mayo with anchovies and capers on delicious whole grain bread. Nice presentation too.



I made a delicious homemade pizza with skinny slices of roasted eggplant on top and some prosciutto torn and haphazardly tossed with mozzarella cheese. REALLY good.



I made my favorite nicoise salad with good canned tuna, green beans, nicoise olives and hard boiled eggs. We had enough leftover for 2 lunches too.



I bought a nice big package of smoked bacon at the Union Square Farmers' Market in NYC from Flying Pig Farms, no nitrates added. I plan on using it in recipes calling for pancetta or regular bacon.

first - anything cryo sealed seems to attract me - even those little coctail franks I guess its because it looks like it could travel through space- second I LOVE the week of eats concept...
Oh, I can't wait to see what you are going to make with the bacon.

You know I've never been to the US market?! It's such a shame, I really should just but my butt on the subway and head down there.

Bacon... I miss you, bacon. Turkey bacon is awful, and just evil. I know, you told me not to read your blog for awhile, but I can't give up food AND reading your blog!

Love all of it. I have a thing for egg salad, almost any variation. Beautiful.

And the fresh smoked bacon should serve you well, for sure.
