In the afternoon I enjoyed a leftover salad of spinach, kale, char, lemon, peppadew, olive oil, and golden beets.
For dinner I started off by finding a use for the fourth in my series of fantastic sea salts from Gustomundial.
I tossed some potato wedges with olive oil, pepper, and the olive salt and roasted them at high heat until nice and golden. I find this salt is outstanding but probably better used in an uncooked state. Sprinkling additional salt on the potatoes after they came out of the oven seemed to work.
I used a seasonal substitution for the traditional orange slice with Belgian beer by using these delicious Murcott Tangerines. I also used a year-round substitution for Belgian beer with this Blue Moon.
I cleared out a tremendous amount of items from the fridge by making this one pan roast with onion, garlic, and pepper. I marinated some perch fillets and shrimp with peppadews, lemon, and white wine which I roasted in the oven on top of the sauteed onion and pepper mixture.
It was a relaxing snowy evening with friends, good food, and the soothing sound of a German slalom skier sobbing hysterically on a snowy mountain outside of Vancouver. What can I say? I love a sporting event where nations compete!
