I’m a big fan of bagels & lox. Sweet and salty smoked salmon meets cream cheese – that’s the stuff right there.
Tonight, I made a version of this old favorite. Kind of healthified it.
Smoked salmon from PA’s own company: Wild For Salmon. Topping a toasted Ezekial English muffin, with a layer of reduced-fat cream cheese. On the top, a few sprigs of fresh dill.
I also made a soup, using beets, potatoes, onions, garlic, green cabbage and dill – seasoned with cumin, tumeric, chili powder, salt & pepper. I spiced this up in an additional effort to restore me to health. It definitely had a strong kick!
If I was truly taking you on a tour of NYC’s Lower East Side in the olden days, I might have also had a nice sour dill pickle. Maybe next time.
On a side note, I went shopping today for groceries, but it was tough going. My sense of balance was a little off, which must have something to do with my sinuses. Now that I’ve been sitting the rest of the afternoon, it’s been better. Even though it was kind of rough walking around today, I’m encouraged that I continue to feel better than yesterday!
My husband and I just watched about 3 Top Chef episodes in a row. They were old episodes ‘on demand’, which I hadn’t seen before. I find that the cheftestant’s dishes are always super creative, but alas – I wouldn’t be interested in eating probably 50% of them. (Mainly due to them being meat-related.) I’m always left with questions after watching that show, actually. I would like to see more footage of the cooking techniques. I guess most of the audience would be bored by that, so that’s why they don’t show it.
Are you a Top Chef fan? Or, do you watch other ‘cooking reality shows’?
