... savoury cooking ...

Our Sunday continued with a lot of reading, until we were interrupted when our tummies started mumbling, (as my little one used to say when she was tiny) ...

 

I love presenting things no matter how simple in a beautiful way ... it doesn't matter if it's just for my family or for guests ... it is comforting to me to see a beautifully presented meal.

 

I love Jordan's blog, Oh Happy Day and her Style Eats posts where I saw this ... which was the perfect lunch for a late lazy Sunday ...

I wanted something light and fast ... this combo just hit the spot.

I am jotting down ideas for a brunch I am having for my friend and this seems like a perfect addition to the menu. These potato cup eggs are also contenders ...

I love savoury cooking ... I love it because I can be creative and use whatever I have on hand. I don't have to be too precise ... it just simply depends on my fridge, my pantry and my imagination ...

Tonight I opened my fridge and saw a zucchino, a red pepper and a green pepper that needed my immediate attention. I hate throwing away food, so I immediately decided these veggies would be part of dinner ...

Lately I have been making a lot of risotto ... and though this recipe is not what I would call traditionally Italian ... the result was exquisite ...

 

Cucumber salad to finish the meal ... with a light oil and vinegar dressing ... and cilantro which I love!

I have to apologize for my pics ... I often have my family waiting, so the quality suffers ... there is seldom time for natural light ... (well, this was dinner ... and that is even worse because the light situation in my household is not photography ready).

It was a great dinner, actually it was a great food day ... starting with the wonderful Cinnamon Coffee Cake, the warm tomato soup and cheese toast, and for the grand finale ... the risotto ...

... it was a relaxing Sunday ... however right now the Sunday blues are settling in ... the worries of work and a few back to back trips that are coming up are weighing on me ... time to get back to my book to take my mind off things before I head to start the new week ... hope your week is happy and healthy ... a dopo ...
