Pablo's menu this week

We are back from the woods (a post on camping delights coming up very soon) and ready for this holiday week!

Sharing some photos of our family's culinary "highlights" last week...

The Carrot Risotto from the blog Food Loves Writing was fabulous, Pablo gobbled it up!

























My mother whipped up this amazing potato-mushroom omelet before the mushrooms went bad...
Loving it "baveuse", meaning runny


My new mom friend Hiromi gave me these precious beans from her garden!
Pablo and we ate them in a salad with garlic and parsley vinaigrette

Impromptu picnic to go see an art exhibit at Mt Wilson, it's not a proper picnic without tomato and hard-boiled egg

Plum-pear compote with mashed banana



























Cheeses of the week: Following French tradition, I always offer a little bit of cheese at the end of every meal, between the main course and dessert. Rotation this week: White cheddar from New Zealand, Petit Basque (sheep's milk), Vache Qui Rit, Pecorino.

Desserts: At lunch, I offer a fruit yogurt (or plain yogurt with fresh fruit), but at night, I prefer sticking to plain yogurt (regular whole milk plain, sheep’s milk, and Greek yogurt for extra protein) to avoid too much sugar before bedtime.

If you would like a particular recipe on the menu, feel free to contact me! (I marked with a * the recipes that will be the topic of upcoming posts).
