Just another weblog

Summer! June 15, 2010

I know, my posting has fallen… severely. This was partially because my camera took crappy pictures of food. And what’s the point of a food blog without pictures? But, now I’ve got a new camera (with a “Food” setting, ooh la la!), and am back in the saddle.

My plan for summer 2010 involves three things: salads, tuna, and white wine. It never ceases to amaze me how much my tastes change as soon as it gets hot, my appetite goes down and I crave fresh, easy, simple meals. For some inspiration, peruse Mark Bittman’s list of 101 simple salads. Today, I steamed some yellow wax beans and threw ’em in with kalamatas, red leaf lettuce, and tuna filets in a vinaigrette of lemon juice, lemon-tarragon vinegar (home made by my crafty mother!), olive oil, garlic, and minced kalamatas. It looked like this:

And, in two days I am off to PERU for 10 days. Expect major street food porn!
