Though I know you'll never make these, I have to tell you, these were the bomb.
By Bomb I mean fabulous, not a bomb, like seeing a lousy play on Broadway.
This was part of my New Year's plan to not waste food anymore.
No throwing away vegetables that are past their prime in the fridge, no tossing leftovers. Only buy what we need, eat what I cook, and be more creative with leftovers.
I had fresh sage that was about 2 days away from the garbage, leftover roasted sweet potatoes from last night's chicken dish and a 3 day old bowl of caramelized onions (how lucky!).
I don't expect you to have any of these items in your fridge, so I am just showing off.
I toasted some leftover bread to make crostini. I spread some fig jam, a leftover sweet potato cube, a dollop of caramelized onions and a fried sage leaf on top of each slice.
We opened a bottle of nice wine and had a delicious first course!
