This post is not so much about what I made as it is about why I made it.
Today was special; and not because it was a holiday or Hallmark “______” Day. It was special because my eldest returned from France and my in laws returned from Florida. These are special people in my life, and I want to cook well for them.
Each time I have travelled internationally my first desire for food is “normal”, meaning normal for my own routine. With this in mind I selected bold simple flavors that are typical in our house.
Rather than a salad, a shishito pepper appetizer – pan fried and seasoned with lemon and coarse sea salt.
