Today  was a very lazy sunday for me, I did not even feel like cooking. So, instead of a hot meal, I had a simple  “Vesper”  of bread, horseradish, salame , brie and gorgonzola. Good stuff 🙂

Vodka & Wine Flatbread

Wodka & Wine Flatbread ”

If you wonder about the name of this dish ? –
Last night at around 1.30am, after  “a bit”  of vodka and wine, my friend Darryl “demanded” food. Here is what I could muster :
Freshly baked flatbread with salame, mascarpone, egg, mushroom, banana peppers, sriracha and grated asiago cheese.
It might not have been pretty but ist sure hit the spot 🙂

Bon Appetit !  Cheers !   Life is Good !

” Salad Of Romaine, Salame, Gorgonzola & Pomegranate / Blueberry Dressing “

.
.
Although I love pasta and stews of any kind more than any other food,
a close third place is definitely a nice salad. Last night the salad God’s
were knocking at my door, leaving me with this wonderful, quick and easy
concoction :
Romaine, salame, roquefort, egg, carrot, tomato, onion and
pomegranate / blueberry Dressing.
Salad Heaven, right there   🙂

Ingredient’s :

Romaine lettuce,           cut
Tomatoes,                       sliced
Onions,                           sliced
Carrots,                           julienned
Eggs,                                made into thin crepe, julienned
Garlic,                              paste
Salame,                            thickly julienned
Gorgonzola,                   coarsely  crumbled
Dressing,                        Pomegranate / blueberry/garlic

Method :

Mix all ingredients lightly and serve with a slice of rustic bread
to mop up the dressing and bits at the bottom of the plate.

In this case I used ready made dressing ( Litehouse Pom / Blueberry),
which I enhanced a bit to my taste with garlic paste. Obviously the
choice of dressing, as well as any other ingredient to this salad is
open to change and additions. Just follow your heart, your
cravings and your phantasy  🙂
