The day I decided to start this blog was the day P asked me over gmail Chat what she could make from the limited and seemingly completely discordant ingredients in her fridge.
P is a law student and is currently studying for the Most Ridiculous Exam in the World. She therefore spends most of her time avoiding studying by trolling the cafés in her neighborhood with her computer where she inevitably ends up gmail chatting with me. She decided recently to buy a brand-new stove and cook things on it, so I thought I’d help her out by posting some of the yummy stuff that I have time to create here in my miniscule kitchen.
Here is a photo of the barley salad P managed to concoct with my out-on-a-limb suggestion of a barley salad with almond butter vinaigrette:
She’s got some work to do on her presentation, but apparently it tasted good! Heidi Swanson, eat your heart out!
After she tried it and told me it was good, I was brave enough to try to make my own almond-butter vinaigrette for a wheatberry salad with beets and apples… That recipe perhaps to come, if I make it again, and can take a picture. Cause it was SO beautiful.
Next time I’ll see what I can do about a gatorade vinaigrette.
