chips, coffee, sauce verte
Today, before I get properly stuck into my literature essay (hence the weird title of this post), I got through a couple more recipes.
389. Chicory and Mustard Salad (Dinner)
Chicory is out of season at the moment, so I used witlof. (I always used these 2 terms interchangeably; I didn't realise they were 2 different things, but according to the dude at Leo's, they are).
390. Mushroom crostini (Dinner)
This recipe looks a lot fancier than it really is. The topping for the little crunchy bread rounds simply consists of chopped thyme, garlic and mushrooms, cooked until soft, to which you add grated parmesan. A light sprinkling of chopped parsley completes them. Easy.
I'm a bit stressed at the moment with essays, finishing off the project and other not-quite-related antipodean dramas, so don't have much of an appetite (yes, I'm shocked too). However, the mushroom crostini smell really, really good, and I'd be happy to pull them out at a dinner party. The salad looks pretty good too - I'll get my mum to do a taste-test for me later on.
Now I'm back to immerse myself in the world of 1830's Jamaica. Yah man.
