Sweet Beauregard Soup

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

With the New Orleans Saints and Mardi Gras still on my brain and rain on my head, a southern inspired menu featuring soup seemed like the perfect way to go. A huge Beauregard Yam was transformed using a Food Network recipe for sweet potato soup. Deliciously spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and freshly grated ginger from our garden, the soup is delightfully sweet from slow roasting the yam and adding just a bit of golden grown sugar. My favorite “Polenta” cookbook from Chronicle Books provided the inspiration for the herbed polenta muffins that accompanied the soup. For an easy green side, I relied on a favorite celery salad recipe from Saveur Magazine. Always in the freezer, Aidell’s Chicken and Apple sausages (purchased at Costco) completed our casual dinner. Oh yes, the new Reese’s Peanut Butter cups with Dark Chocolate now seemed like an almost healthy dessert to conclude our meal!


A Simple Sirloin Supper

Monday, November 16th, 2009

K-I-S-S Keep It Simple Stupid — the watchwords of my wonderful mother-in-law. Grace would have heartily approved of this Marin Sun Farms sirloin steak, grilled along with fingerling potatoes — crowning a bed of wild arugula. Worcestershire sauce, Stonehouse Farms extra virgin olive oil and fresh thyme dressed this delicious dish. Cosentino Winery‘s Zinfandel created an atmosphere of further relaxation for our simple supper, concluding with left-over Halloween candy. A salute to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Kit Kat Wafer Bars!
