Good lunch

with one comment

In a large bowl I put about half of a bin of organic spring mix leaf lettuce.

I cut 3 rashers thick bacon into squares and put that in a fry pan over medium heat.

While the bacon gradually started cooking, I took a 1-cup storage thing and put in

  • Olive oil
  • Golden balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp tarragon Dijon mustard
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Hot paprika
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

I shook the be-jesus out of that and poured it over the spring mix and tossed it.

The bacon was coming along, so I paid attention to that until the pieces were all browned. They, too went into the salad, but not the bacon fat. I put in four sea scallops (the large guys) and cooked those on both sides. They go into the salad, but not the bacon fat. I add a handful of arame seaweed I had soaked and sautéed that and then poured the contents of the fry pan over the salad.

So, I told The Wife, I did get some of the bacon fat.

Sounds like you got it all, she said.

Well, I said, yes, I did. And then I tried to pretend that I had said I got (the) sum of the bacon fat. But she didn’t believe me.

It was a very fine salad.
