....and Garbure from the Supermarket.
Do you ever have one of those days when you look at a recipe and think "that could be good!" and then you show it to family members and they all get "that" look on their face? Two Tartines from La Croix Rouge was one of those recipes. An extremely simple recipe that called for crusty bread, thinly sliced salmon, rare roast beef, capers, mayo, gherkins, and lemon slices turned into one where I asked myself "how can I get my family to eat this"? The answer was simple! Make it out of angel food cake and candy! The roast beef is a watermelon belt dipped in Hershey's syrup. The mayo is marshmallow fluff. Salmon is chewy grapefruit slices that, had I had time, could have been softened and stretched to look a bit more like sliced salmon. And the capers are watermelon Jelly Belly's. You can bet I had no resistance when this was offered to my family! Bonus: we have angel food cake left over for dessert tonight! ;)
The Garbure from the Supermarket was last week's recipe and called for beans that has been soaked, boiled, and left to sit for an hour. Plenty of veggies were added to the mix along with ham bone. If you wanted to add a duck leg and garlic sausage later you could do that in the last hour of cooking. My girl loved this and went back for seconds...any maybe thirds. My husband thought it had good flavor as did I. My son was not a fan. I have said before that he has some sensory issues. The texture was a little mushy after all of the cooking so it was difficult for him to eat. He also has an appliance on the top of his mouth which catches food like this as well. He was a trooper though and ate as much as he could.
You might notice there is only one half of the bread stick left in the photo below. My "helper" was not terribly sneaky and stole it right off the plate while I was taking the pictures!
LYL to see how other cooks around the world liked this this week! Enjoy! :)
