Poached Egg and Smoked Salmon on Toast

Just reading the title made me want this dish again.

Apparently, my husband can poach eggs. Perfectly. I'm a little miffed that I didn't know this for the first 13 years of our relationship. But now that I know, he's going to be in the kitchen a lot more frequently.

What you see below is completely my husband's doing. Lightly toasted sourdough, a smear of a French herbed cheese, sliced baby heirloom tomatoes, olive oil, lemon salt, pepper, smoked salmon, chives, a couple pieces of arugula, poached egg.


Look at that gorgeous yolk. There was absolutely nothing I would have changed with this dish.

Grilled Buffalo Wings

I'm a little late to the party, but I received a free bottle of KC Masterpiece Hot Buffalo Marinade from Foodbuzz, since apparently they consider me a Tastemaker.


I rarely (and by rarely, I mean never) buy bottled marinades or dressings. But this was free, and KC Masterpiece makes decent products, so I gave it a shot. Also, there's no high-fructose corn syrup in their Buffalo marinade, so that made me happy, even before tasting it.


I marinated wing sections for about 30 minutes while I got the grill going, then grilled the wings over indirect heat (so as not to burn the sugar in the marinade), basting occasionally.


Served with a simple iceberg wedge with homemade blue cheese dressing, this was a great simple meal. (The dressing recipe is from Great Greens, a cookbook that I highly recommend.) Thanks, Foodbuzz!
