Eating up Easter

Easter 2016 Menu, in no particular order, because that’s how my brain works.

Roasted chickpea and sun dried tomato hummus with naan chips

Antipasti platter with cured meats and triple cream brie

Duck Curry- roast the duck, pull the meat, use the carcass to make stock for the curry.  Red curry with sweet potato or butternut squash

Mushroom and leek risotto with parmesan and sage

Roasted cauliflower with pine nuts

Arugula salad with olives, sun dried tomatoes , basil, balsamic, parmesan

Roasted broccoli with cheddar cheese melted on top

Saluted green beans or bok choy with soy and sesame seeds or almonds

Charred cream of poblano soup with crispy duck skin

House made naan

Steamed white rice

I want to make Chinese style egg noodles with assorted veg: carrots, zucchini, eggplant, topped with bean sprouts.  Use hoisin and sherry, oyster sauce for flavoring.

Lemon poppy seed cake with raspberries, whip cream, candied almonds

Going over board?  Certainly.  Let’s see how many of these things I actually get around to making today.

Peace, Love, and Colored Eggs.

Eggs.  I use and eat and consume and demand a lot of eggs.  All of which are chicken eggs, not just mainly, I am talking about exclusively.  What other kinds of eggs are out there?  I feel like I am missing out on a golden egg opportunity.  The only kind of eggs available widely is quail.  Have you ever seen a quail egg? It is so tiny!  I cannot even imagine the absurdity of separating the whites and yolks!  That is hilarious.  There are duck eggs, which are much larger than chicken eggs.  The taste profile is very similar.

What about a turkey egg?  What about eggs other than poultry?  I heard ostrich eggs are delicious, and huge.
