BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS # 43 – Rib Eye & Mushroom In Cream

>
>
Aaaahhhhhhhh……,  the bliss of being able to sleep in on a Sunday morning, amplified by the fact that summer day light saving times ended and we set back our clocks one hour before going to sleep 🙂
But, somehow, Bella was not aware (or maybe she just choose to ignore) of these little facts, so guess who was moaning in front of my bedroom for me to get up at 4.00am this morning, demanding to go for a walk?
So, when we came back at 5.00am, a decent breakfast was called for (by both of us). Steak and mushrooms pacified my shattered nerves and put both me and my lady back on good terms 🙂

Pasta With Smoked Salmon In Horseradish/Mustard Cream

>
>
Rigatoni rigate,  smoked salmon and a creamy velouté – nearly impossible not to like this combination ! 🙂
After we have learned how to make a velouté in my last post, (click here for recipe), and hopefully have a few small containers in the freezer to use at short notice (just defrost in the microwave), wonderful dishes like this one take only a few minutes from start to finish.
The reward for this relatively small effort is a dish which oozes flavor, presentation, elegance and class 🙂 All in a mere few minutes of preparation and cooking time.

Sauteed Vegetables In Ginger / Garlic Cream With Fan

>

Last
 night’s dinner could have been sooooo healthy, if  I’d have stuck to olive oil instead of butter and no heavy cream.
But then again,  what is life without love, food and drink as good and rich as possible.
(Well, for me, anyway)
So, there you have it, an almost healthy dinner, great tasting and not too shabby looking either 🙂

Bon Appetit !   Life is Good !
