It's Monday. Monday always follows Sunday, at least in my experience. And with Monday, comes the job of figuring out the week's menus.
But first, see what I found under the melting snow? These are the skeletonized seed pods from my Stella de Oro daylily. They really are quite striking.
Yes, he is doing a bit better now. And that makes me feel better, too.
And now, on to the food. I happen to adore main course salads, so that is on the menu for tonight. The first job was to cut and fry two slices of bacon. Then I sauteed some of the frozen diced ham I had left over from Christmas in the bacon grease.
How bad can any recipe be that starts with 'fry two slices of bacon'?
I cut up the remaining French Baguette Bread from Sunday's dinner. The bread cubes then went into the bacon grease. But not to worry, as the rest of the dinner is healthful.
Some dried Herbes de Provence were sprinkled over the top. The bread cubes were carefully sauteed over medium-high heat until just browned.
I had also hard-boiled a couple of eggs for the salads. Romaine lettuce was chopped and cleaned before being plated.
