02 May 2011 – Sunday Supper on Monday
It was a very hectic weekend, so I did not get around to cooking Sunday Supper last night. Friday night, Jeff and I went to see Lucinda Williams at the Cobb Energy Center. I have seen her five times now, but she was better than ever on Friday. She was in great voice, and her band was incredible. She actually sounded better live than she does on her CDs – a rare case. On Saturday, I worked the Store, and then we had the Service League Ball that evening. It was a lot of fun, and the League raised a lot of money to benefit needy children in Cherokee County. Nice job. Afterward, some new and old friends came over to the Side Porch at One Britt, and he had a lot of fun. Yesterday, I was a little tired from all of the festivities, but I had a lot of yard work to accomplish. I got a lot done, but I did not finish in time to cook. So, it was Mexican and margaritas instead for Sunday Supper. However, we got another big bag of ramps last week, so I could not let them go to waste. So tonight, I left work on time to get to nursery to buy some coleus for the side porch pots and make a simple Monday Supper with the ramps. I made some great roasted fingerling and ramp potatoes, olive oil steamed corn on the cob and organic, grass fed cube steak. In addition, I made two more pounds of homemade organic ramp butter from scratch, and I still have ramps left over! I hope to make more butter in the next couple of days, but it is going to be a busy week. Hope your Manic Monday was equally productive and delicious!
The Monday Menu:
- Organic Grass Fed Cube Steak
- Oven Roasted Organic Fingerling Potatoes and Wild Ramps
- Olive Oil, Husk-Steamed Sweet Florida Corn
