White Park Steak (Lucky George) with Asparagus with Crumbled Bacon (or seared Prosciutto) and Balsamic Vinegar (or not)
Remember, Shannon doesn't particularly like steak, even strip steak. Certainly a nice buttery flavor of the steak, clearly Lucky George is trying to find the right breed for their farm. I liked how the roasted asparagus turned out as well. I ended up just using crumbled bacon.
Roasted Green Garlic pesto w/ toast and and egg on it (stealing from Brett right here)
Salt + green garlic tossed in olive oil, roasted, then pureed with olive oil. Then I took a side path, and decided to make burgers instead. Pretzel buns + 15 Fields Irish Cheddar + bacon + hamburger fried in bacon fat + Green Garlic Pesto. Good stuffs. That turned out great. Admittedly I was thinking about it for a good chunk of the day.
Ramps! Yay! I made extra so Shannon could have risotto leftovers, cause I almost never make risotto anymore.
Quinoa Pilaf with Scallions and Saucisson Sec (reference)
I made it to spicy. I used jalepeno pepper powder, and just added to much. My apologies to my wife. That being said, I'm enoying the leftovers. I like how filling Quinoa is.
