I just made the best dinner ever.

Tortellini
Boil the tortellini until done. Drain then return to the pot. Have the heat on low, add three wedges of Laughing Cow (original flavor) and a splash of milk...about 1/4 cup. Sprinkle in some kosher salt, grind some pepper into the pot, and add some garlic powder. Stir until the cheese is melted and everything is all incorporated. Deliciousness!

Veal Shoulder Chop
Heat olive oil in an oven-proof skillet. Sprinkle the veal with Emeril's Essence or whatever spice mixture you'd like. Brown for about 5 minutes per side then finish in a 375 degree oven for about 5 minutes.

I added Texas garlic cheese toast for the kids and husband and steamed asparagus for all of us.

It was so wonderful!

vespachica: (Macaron)
[livejournal.com profile] stemware has inspired me with his menus which are far more elaborate than mine. Well, he claims they're simple but...eh...

In that vein, I have reserved several books from the library. They include a few books by Mark Bittman, Thomas Keller (French Laundry cookbook and restaurant), and Anthony Bourdain (Les Halles cookbook and restaurant). I really want to learn how to make good sauces. I want to try my hand at a soufflé. I'd love to bake more (cakes, pies, pastries, macarons!). Etc. etc.

I am freezing. I need to go to bed.
