One blog I like to read is Katie's, Thyme for Cooking. This last week she had a salad that sounded so very good, that tonight The Trout and I put this together and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Spinach and quinoa, with yellow pepper, carrots, avocado, white cheddar and a soy balsamic vinaigrette. Instead of the stir-fry chicken she suggested, we simply grilled a steak to go with it. Very, very good.
Check out Katie's blog. She is a Midwest girl who has lived in Europe for some time, but just now settled into a new (restoring an old) home in France. Her recipe and blog can be found here. Along with this delightful meal, we had a bottle of L'Anthemtique Vacqueyras 2005 wine.
