I don’t write about life outside the kitchen too much on this site -- this is a food blog, after all! However, happenings outside of the blogosphere have been pretty darned exciting so I figure it’s time to bring everyone up to speed (which also explains why you haven't seen a ton of new posts in recent months). The two biggies?
1. Chris and I moved from Sacramento to Mountain View last year and are loving life in the Bay Area, and
2. We got married!
Our big day was everything we’d hoped and planned for -- so much joy and love shared with our families and friends. Now that things have calmed down and we’re settling into daily life as husband and wife, I’m really excited to get back into the kitchen and to create new, share-worthy recipes. First up is a new Make-Fast Mondays treat I whipped up the other night.
Open-Faced Salmon Sandwiches
Sliced smoked salmon
Whipped cream cheese
Capers, drained and rinsed
Mustard (Inglehoffer Creamy Dill, if you can find it, but Dijon's also great)
Apply a good slathering of cream cheese to toasted rye slices. Add salmon, top with capers and a dollop of mustard, and enjoy.
