I took today off because there were people coming over to the apartment ot fix something.
So what did I do? I cooked. A LOT.
-short crust pastry (I was telling TM how this was a stresful thing - I nearly gave up twice...it was one of those things in culinary school that always puzzled me. Today, it worked out. But it was really thick too.Ah well. Have to start somewhere.)
-Bacon & leek quiche, with said short crust pastry. It was soooo good. Crisp bacon, sauteed leek, zucchini, smoked gouda, jarlsberg, salt and pepper. Mmmm-mmm good.
-monkfish baked in cream, grainy mustard, sauteed leeks (whites only), salt & peppercorns, served atop brown rice
-tomato tart, with deliciously ripe Okanagan tomatoes, onion confit on a cornmeal & parmesan crust
Ok. So it wasn't that many things. But it was full on multi-prep food.
I also went for dim sum with my parents and sister. It was good to see them, and I can tell the feeling was mutual.
Anyways. to my Canadians, have a great long weekend! It's rainy in Vancouver, but it's supposed to warm up.
