Dazed and confused? Not me. I’m just Lost in the Cheese Aisle.

Sautéed sea scallops.

Just in case you’ve been wondering what’s on the menu here at Chez Elisson these days...

Roasted venison tenderloin with chipotle pepper rub
SWMBO’s Four-Bean Salad

Sautéed sea scallops with lemon zest, pimentón (smoked Spanish paprika) and piment d’Espelette (Basque red pepper)
Arugula salad with pine nuts and walnut oil vinaigrette
Steamed Brussels sprouts with fleur de sel
Heirloom cherry tomatoes with shallots, feta, olive oil, and basil

Grilled bison strip steak with jalapeño-cilantro pesto
Arugula salad with pine nuts, shaved aged Gouda, and walnut oil vinaigrette
Roasted beets with balsamic vinegar dressing
SWMBO’s Four-Bean Salad
Assorted olives
Fresh apricots with Idiazabal cheese

What’s missing? Well, there are not a lot of carbs here... but that’s mainly because I was too lazy to throw a sweet potato in the oven. Besides, who needs a bunch of starch when you’re already stuffed with arugula and Brussels sprouts? So what if I crap green?

[Now, I’ll be the first to point out that, with regard to the venison tenderloin, there is Absolutely No Fucking Way the Missus will ever eat that stuff, no matter how attractively prepared. Oh, well - more for me.]

Sounds like a fucking high class meat and three diner. I'll be there MON, TUE, and WED.
