OMG! I forgot to post yesterday!!!! How did that happen! I know I started to...oh well - the road to hell, I suppose...
This will be a short post.
You know what I LOVE about my clients? They bring me AMAZING stuff. Yup - JOYJOYJOY. This is what I got last week:
1. Farm fresh eggs (I LOVE you Gail!!!!)
2. Ina Garten's Curried Chicken Salad (to die for)
3. Homemade Pesto
4. Homemade cupcakes
5. An amazing pork creation
6. A more amazing Fresh Salsa Verde
7. That Zucchini dish I posted 2 days ago
And I am positive I am forgetting more and I apologize for that but I am beginning to accept that I just plain FORGET STUFF!
You can't imagine how many gifts I receive throughout the year! I have one client/friend who ALWAYS brings me her amazing leftover experiments! (and they are ALWAYS fabulous!!) One of my BFFs brought me TWO - not one - but TWO bars of Lake Champlain dark Chocolate (amazing) a few weeks ago. I got a wine glass with blue polka dots at the beginning of the summer! People bring me gifts from their vacations (China, Mexico and Costa Rica come to mind!).
I get the most delicious Christmas cookies (Charlene!!!!!!), books people have loved, tickets & unused gift certificates for games and shows and the spa...seriously? It is AMAZING!!! I have THE best clients on earth! Every week someone is bringing me stuff! So blessed - that's me - SO blessed.
I have one, somewhat new, client I have bonded with and she is always sending me recipes and bringing me food. I LOVE this chica!!!! This recipe made the cut. She brought me a big ole container of THE most amazing Fresh Salsa Verde and I was in heaven when I first tasted it. Then I had it with scrambled eggs! Eeeeek!!!!!! Amazing!
It's made with Tomatillos. This is what a tomatillo looks like. They are so pretty!
Tonight I am making her recipe for Fish Tacos (sans the taco only because I forgot to buy the corn tortilla and then realized - I can't eat them anyway and I can still make the fish and the sauces!) and plan to serve it with a side of the Salsa Verde.
Here's the recipe:
Fresh Salsa Verde
1/2 lb Tomatillos, husked, rinsed, quartered (6-8)
2-3 garlic cloves, peeled
1 onion, sliced
1 Tbls EVOO
2 jalapenos, remove seeds and cut in half
1 small lime (juice from)
2 tsp. salt (to taste)
1/2 c. cilantro, chopped
Roast half the tomatillos, 2 garlic cloves, 2/3 onion and jalapenos at 400 deg. until soft and browned. Throw into food processor along with remain ingredients. Grate remaining garlic, really fine and process all until lumpy smooth.
I highly recommend this on anything. LOL!
Here is what I made to serve with my fish tacoless and Salsa Verde. Tomato Pie!!!!!
Big ass food JOY! That's all for now folks. Tomorrow is another day!
