Crackle

December 1, 2011

Hiked to the bakery this afternoon with Country Living in hand. Killing two birds with one stone!

Love that magazine. Everything is so …country chic! Lots of inspiration.

Whilst there I tried our brand new Spinach Feta bread and had two clementines that I brought in my pocket. Trying to not eat so many cookies while I’m there!

My walk back was cold and dark, but also very pleasant. I love walking and I am so thankful I do not live 70 miles from my workplace anymore.

Tonight’s dinner was a bit random, but totally delicious. I roasted up a huge pan of MamaPea’s Cracklin’ Cauliflower (with potatoes mixed in!) and we ate it with Spinach Feta bread topped with lox, greek yogurt and capers.

Greek yogurt is good on an-y-thing!

And the Cracklin – just plain good.

Note the extra yogurt + sriracha for dipping!!!

I’m on a hot-tea-at-9pm-with-TV kick. Time to enjoy!

Mmmm I LOVE lox, cream cheese (Greek yogurt is a great substitute too), and capers on toast or bagels! We always have them as part of our Christmas Day brunch, but I never think of making them for normal meals – I need to!

those potatoes and cauliflower look divine. i miss lox a lot sometimes (after going vegetarian), but i’m sure i could find something else to go with that greek yogurt. :-)

i’m glad you had a nice walk, even if it wasn’t perfect! i miss being outside more and more the earlier the sun sets…

That looks like a good dinner to me! I’ve actually been craving lox this week, I need to pick some up!

You’re lucky you live within walking distance to work–so cool.

Oo…may have to go grab that issue of Country Living to find out what those gorgeous antique’y looking utensils are all about. Love those! And Spinach and Feta together is heaven no matter what form! I can imagine that bread is awesome.

16 Lindsay @ Running the Windy City December 1, 2011 at 9:22 pm

You’re right, greek yogurt does taste good on everything! My favorite non-traditional use is on top of a grain/bean dish with hot sauce. Such a good combination!

You have spinach feta bread?? Oh YUM. I love feta (and spinach, while we’re at it).

I love capers with salmon!! That dinner looks delish! Although anytime roasted veggies are involved…its bound to be!

19 Susan H. @ the food allergy chronicles December 1, 2011 at 9:53 pm

My husband and I both agree that MamaPea’s Cauliflower Cracklin’ looks amazing! We love curry flavours…I think sweet potatoe or squash would also make it divine!

Glad you live closer to your workplace, too. Commuting as little as possible frees up SO many hours in the day!

The pics are especially pretty in this post of your food…I hope you submitted them :)

I want to like lox. I keep trying but it just hasn’t happened yet. It looks so good though!

Have to agree – greek yoghurt is good with anything! Lox sounds beautiful, haven’t tried it before :)

29 Lindsay @ biking before bed December 1, 2011 at 11:53 pm

I can’t remember the last time I had lox! I normally eat it with cream cheese but greek yogurt sounds awesome. And so jealous of your quick work commute. It is my dream to be able to bike to work one day.

70 miles from home?! Goodness, I’m glad you don’t live that far from work because that sounds awful! The bread, on the other hand, sounds great!

I just did Greek yogurt on my black bean enchiladas last night cuz I was out of sour cream. Worked great! (dinner looks great!)

So it tasted good not eaten off the floor? Maybe I’ll eliminate that step from the official process after all…

Reply

36 KathEats December 2, 2011 at 9:28 am

Actually I think the floor one tasted better!

37 Hillary December 2, 2011 at 7:07 am

I am so jealous of your commute. It takes me about 25 minutes to get to work, and at least 45 minutes to get to my graduate school campus. Ugh. I’m hoping that sometime in the near future I can cut it down to a distance that’s actually walkable!

I love lox and cream cheese on a bagel! I’m not a fan of capers though. Blech! I always end up picking them off. :P

I need to try the cauliflower…sounds tasty and anything is better with a little sriracha sauce!!

I guess I am out of the loop… But what is sriracha? :)

It’s a spicy garlic sauce that’s used in Asian cooking a lot
