Catching Up on the Backlog

A last minute trip to Greece to re-enact the 2500th anniversary of the Battle of Marathon put a bit of a dent in my spare time, and one of the first thing that had to give was posting in the blog.  That's not to say that there wasn't a lot of cooking going on.  Here's a little photo round up of a few things that have gone down or come out of the kitchen over the past month:

Aija spooning fig jam into a savoury tart. 
Some hamming it up for the photo couldn't be avoided...

Suzy happily engaged in the same task.

Aija demonstrating some dexterity by making the marinade
for a batch of teriyaki pork chops into an emulsion.

Summer vegetable salad from the market including purple beans.

A colourful farfalle dish whipped up in a hurry.

The tomatillo salsa was a big hit, especially as it was ready
when company dropped by unexpectedly.
Tired of seeing the bounty from the market yet?  Not me...

Sometimes the simple things are best... Canadian bacon, heirloom tomato, and
lettuce sandwiches on St. John's Bakery bread with the last of the 2010 pickled asparagus.
