One morning instead of pastry we had the ham and brie quiche. It was absolutely decadent!

On another visit I had the ham and Fontina panino and Avril, a brilliant rendition of potato leek soup. We had envisioned a puree but this was more of a chowder with a well seasoned broth and chunks of potato. The soup was worthy of five stars.

On the home front I have been experimenting with recipes. For the Superbowl I built a stadium size New Orleans style muffuletta sandwich that was a crowd favorite. It featured Italian style cured meats and my homemade olive salad. I had lots of leftovers so I assembled another and sent it to Avril's coworkers for lunch the next day.

One Friday night we went beef crazy and grilled off a giant Porterhouse steak.We had enough meat for the entire weekend.
In the new year we always tip our hat towards eating a little healthier so I have built a repertoire of salads to send to work with Avril. Here are a few favorites.
|Confit Tomato and Arugula Salad with Pecorino and Balsamic Reduction|
|Caesar Salad with chicken, anchovies and homemade croutons|
|Nicoise Salad with Roasted Beets|
Look forward to more adventures soon!
