I host a family feast, always a sit-down dinner, for all major holidays. Unfortunately, I often don't have a relaxing time because I'm tied to the kitchen. Not that that is a problem, but...
This Christmas I'm doing a buffet-style celebration featuring a variety of tapas dishes. One of the dishes will be piquillo peppers, some stuffed wiht tuna and some stuffed with goat cheese. The tuna is flavored with shallot, lemon, capers, black pepper, and a bit of dill. The goat cheese is flavored with shallot, chive, oregono and sherry vinegar. Here's my test plate:
Now I have a mighty hunger... so here is my December challenge entry:
Not the pretiest sandwich I've ever made or eaten, but very tasty.
Two slices of slightly stale cracked wheat bread - basically free.
Leftover goat cheese spread and tuna - basically free
Dried tomato dust - basically free as they were the skins of garden tomato that were canned.
Potaot chips - really free (of everything but guilt) as I took them from my son's lunch.
Merry Christmas to all!
