I am so exhausted from our exploration adventure today; I’m struggling to stay awake. We backed out on going to Baltimore and decided to explore D.C. some more instead. I have a giant post to blog tomorrow about our day, but before I head off to bed, I wanted to blog our dinner!
After walking over ten miles, we stopped at Whole Foods to pick up some ingredients to make dinner. I really wanted to make my broccoli salad for T.C. because he loves it and I wanted to try to recreate the Tabla De Salmon from La Tasca that we had the other night .
I wasn’t too sure of their recipe, but I paid close attention to the flavors to come up with the ingredients to make it close.
Ingredients: 1 Package Lower Fat Cream Cheese, 2 tsps garlic, juice from 1/2 small lemon, black pepper, red onion slices, capers, smoked salmon, and a french baguette.
First stir the lemon, cream cheese, garlic, and pepper to taste together. Taste test the cream cheese to make sure it doesn’t need more garlic, lemon, or pepper.
While you’re making the cream cheese mixture, place the baguette in the oven for 5-7 minutes at 300 degrees to heat. Once you take the baguette out, slice it into little pieces.
Spread the cream cheese over the baguette.
Add the smoked salmon, red onion, capers, and more black pepper.
These were so easy to make and they’re a perfect appetizer idea. This is probably one of the best tasting quick meals I’ve ever made and eaten. T.C. and Karlee loved them too! They were pretty darn close to the restaurants version! I didn’t know smoked salmon tasted so freaking good! Where have I been?
I seriously could have eaten the entire baguette. I bet they would be good on bell pepper slices too!
I also made my broccoli salad but a vegetarian version for my brother. I used vegetarian bacon and added baked ramen noodles.
T.C. grilled chicken for Karlee and I and a veggie burger for himself! The dinner was fabulous!
I will post my adventure first thing in the morning! xo
