What I Ate Last Night. . .

Looked at Mark Bittman (aka "The Minimalist") and he has "what I ate last night" entries in his blog. Seems a popular blog entry: I don't know if I have the energy to constantly be posting "what I ate last night" entries, since most of the meals I eat on most nights are not really that memorable. I figure if I get to eat 80% of what I want to eat 80% of the time, I'm happy. It's when those numbers dip that I become cranky.

Last night was a simple roast chicken with lemon and oregano. One of my favourite things in the world is roast chicken. I like how infinitely variable a thing of chicken is. I did lemon and oregano to match with Tiffanie's Greek Salad. Delicious, delicious, delicious. The Greek salad last night is different from the ones we used to do: this one had olives in them. I must say I really am getting more and more enamoured of olives: the olives here just added a whole other dimension to the Greek salad.

I actually carved out the breast of the chicken and made a sandwich of it with the Greek salad. Don't know why, but I craved a sandwich the past two days.

Speaking of cravings, I've been craving split pea soup, but with the weather turning so spring-like and sunny, how am I supposed to curl up to a steaming bowl of split pea soup? Seems like we didn't even get to do "winter dishes" this year. How am I going to do beef stews and beef braises when it's so sunny outside?

Ah yes, beef. Beef is just so political, isn't it? For myself, I can't even make heads and tails of how I stand on the issue. It's quite complicated, but I do love me beef.
