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.
