Let’s just say that I’ve had a great time re-connecting with color these past two days.
Take, for instance, my favorite all-day breakfast treat: the omelette! Who knew that adding green onions, tan chicken sausage, pure white sheep and goat cheese, and faded golden parmesan would taste — and look — so good in that golden yellow blanket? Not to mention the bright red cherry tomatoes, orange mandarin slices, and blueberries I added on the sides of that omelette yesterday.
Today, though – today was another level – and I have Gordon Ramsay to thank for it! Inspired by his broccolini and salmon wisdom on YouTube, I created a real treat for my eyes this morning. Imagine a red-orange salmon, coaxed into a skillet heat with grapeseed oil. The delicious smell owed itself to the sizzling butter and garlic, not to mention the generous dusting of delicious spices: cumin, paprika, pepper and pink Himalayan rock salt. To say that these filets, nestled against sautéed emerald broccolini and salted red tomatoes, were one of my finest eye monuments, is not an overstatement.
Enjoy these artists’ renditions of beautiful food, albeit not accurately representative of my recent exploits. 🙂
Doesn’t that last photo give you hope for spring and summer? Still, snow rocks.

“God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.”
