Random Food Thoughts

Thursday, May 15, 2008

It's springtime so I should try to eat more salads right. Here's what I'm thinking. I'd like to make a smoked salmon salad with avocado and cranberry. I think the cranberry and the avocado would pair well.

Then I'm thinking a spinach salad with feta cheese, candied walnuts, and watermelon.

I should use the Korean chamwei. It's a kind of white melon. I think it would go great with some ham or even prosciutto.

Oh, by the way, the Avian Bird Flu scare in Korea has made me a bit paranoid. 15 million chicken were put to death in Seoul. I was going to make a balsamic chicken wrap with sugared pecan but 1) pecans are damn expensive and 2) everyone is scared of chicken in this country.

I should make a BLT sandwich. That's a classic that always pleases. I think it would be pleasant with yogurt infused with lemon zest and pepper...hmmmm...bacon tastes good.^^

What else, what else???

I'm going to do a sugared walnut recipe tonight. I'll let you know how they turn out. I think I'm going to flavor them with orange zest, cinnamon, and brown sugar. I know it's not that creative, but they'll taste good.

I wish strawberries were still in season because I make an awesome strawberry and parmesan canape.

Well...I should get back to work instead of daydreaming about food.
