Was a smaller turnout but was definitely easier the second time around. Quinoa roasted perfectly, and even “anti-veggie” friends commented on how yummy the quinoa was – maybe I can convert him to eat healthier now and then??! (sorry – no pix on the quinoa – Mike forgot in midst of helping out with everything). As usual, the ck benedict (ck=chef kelly, hehee. how creative, huh?) was a popular item. This time served with a side of poached asparagus and carrots from the Farmers Market. Tofu scramble was also tasty with the sauteed leeks, artichokes and tomatoes (sshhh – I totally forgot about the marinated mushroom dollop that was supposed to go on top. dang~ I had it all ready and in the rush of it, totally forgot about it! Next time…it’d be even better). The finale, the farmers market fruit cup (had the idea of putting it on a tower at the last minute) – and it came out beeeeautiful! And so fresh and sweet, the meyer lemon juice/zest with chopped mint was an awesome way to end a meal.
Thanks to everyone who could make it, including Irma and Carol who trekked all the way from Aliso and my mom from Van Nuys! Eat tasty and healthy this week when you can and be back for more chef kelly’s dishes:) Have a great week~
