Have no fear. I'm back in the saddle again. And with a vengeance. To celebrate my epiphany tonight I dressed the table with a sensuous fare from my Barefoot Contessa. Subconsciously, I must have been planning this meal for several days. I happened upon a Chefography Show on Lifestyle featuring Ina Garten. I knew most of her success story from reading her cookbooks cover to cover and watching her FoodTV show. But, this show was all I needed to pull my head out of the salt-free sand I've been buried in.
It doesn't get much better than the Parisian inspired meal I made this evening. Allow me to elaborate....
Filet of Beef au Poivre
Herbed New Potatoes
Baby Mixed Greens tossed with blue cheese, sliced roasted almonds and Jamie's Dijon Vinaigrette
Paired with a hearty Cabernet Sauvignon
All on a Tuesday night.
No gut(s), no glory. Literally.
