if you have not heard it, Raising Sand, the new alison krauss & robert plant album is sad sweetness just the way you like it!
been working on packaging our new candles. Hefty votives in Verbena and Oakmoss, these are a collaboration with our friends at Oakmont Candle Co.
Have been trying to figure out how to incorporate more bacon grease into my diet - here's my latest interpretation of bacon and eggs:
6 slices bacon fried in cast iron skillet.
remove when crisp, keep on heat
add to same skillet (leave bacon fat): hand full of chopped celery, carrots, shallots
cook 1 min, then add 1 cup of red lentils
continue to cook, stirring often for 5 min
meanwhile wash up some frisee
make a mustardy dressing (i used white balsamic, hazelnut oil, mustard and shallot)
toss with frisee
add 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup chicken broth to lentils, cover, cook on med. heat for 15 min or until lentils are soft.
chop bacon with handfull of fresh thyme or whatever is around.
poach two eggs for 4 min
scoop lentils onto salad, place eggs ontop, finish off with bacon and herbs, drizzle a bit more dressing (or just good oil) over all and eat it!
