You might expect that my life as a caterer means that I eat only the finest cuisine, served on a silver platter with a linen napkin. I do eat really well, because I make it a point to, but it doesn’t usually look like that. I often eat cold food, straight out of the fridge, in a mad dash out the door.
But sometimes, the random leftovers that didn’t make it to the party- the less than beautiful parts- can make a really outstanding meal.
Here’s what I found in the fridge:
- The fresh greens we had bought that morning at the farmers market
- The pieces of filet mignon I had deemed too well done to join the whipped blue cheese and gluten-free crostini that I served at my Saturday event
- Simon’s leftover grilled vegetables from when he cooked himself dinner (!) while I was catering an event the night before. He even sent me a picture, so proud:
So this is how dinner happened:
So there you have it. Dinner made with some random ingredients turned out very delicious, and something I would make again, served on a silver platter.
I hope this inspires you to create something great for dinner tonight!
