I had to work dawn til disk last weekend and so was unable to treat my Sweet Lady Wife to the Mother’s Day she deserved. She was very understanding and supportive but I know I had to make up for it this weekend.
Breakfast: Blackberry-Stuffed French Toast
Spinach Salad with Blue Chees, Pecans, and Creamy Raspberry Vinaigrette
1/4 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
1 shallot, minced
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme
2 tblsp raspberry vinegar
2 tblsp rice wine vinergar
2 tblsp red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup honey
Blend raspberries, shallot, thyme, and all three vinegars in the blender.
Drizzle in the olive oil and honey.
Sear-Roasted Salmon with Roasted New Potatoes
This is my favorite way to prepare salmon. Sear it in the saute pan on the stovetop over high heat. Then put it in the oven for a few minutes to finish.
My Sweet Lady Wife likes these potatoes so well I think I could serve them and get forgiveness for any sin.
Dessert: Chocolate and Banana Crepes
Crepes are an easy favorite in the Fumbling Foodie household. Smear some Nutella on half the crepe, add some sliced bananas and fold the crepe in half. Drizzle a little Nutella on top and add a dollop of whipped cream.
