2011 starts now.

It's time to reign in the excesses of Holiday Season 2010, especially since it's almost February 2011. So, yeah, no more sausage for a while. We will be doing our yearly vegetarian/vegan experiment very soon I believe.

Here's something that looks educational about replacing dairy with coconut.

Maybe we'll try to make tempeh.

Maybe as a way to ease into healthiness we'll make this not-too-healthy salad: celeriac, fennel, pecans, bacon, greens, all with a caramelized apple vinaigrette.

And yesterday Mara made something actually healthy which was really good but just a tiny bit strange. Like an unhealthy ingredient was missing from the recipe that would have made it totally make sense.

But the vinaigrette is healthy and delicious, we'll definitely make it again but we need to see if we can solve the riddle of what it really wants to be paired with, other than the obvious, which is pork. My guess is cheese.


raisin vinaigrette.

3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sherry vinegar
1/2 cup raisins
1 tbsp water
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
