This week we decided to share our newest family member with some friends, and feeling in a warm and fuzzy mood I reached for a comfort food recipe. I followed Simply Gluten Free's recipe for Clams and Mashed Potatoes. This will be added to the regular rotation.
The end result was gorgeous.
I started with organic potatoes from my L.O.V.E. delivery box. Personally, I like to leave the skins in the mash, it makes a heartier mash with extra fibre, color and vitamins.
Prepped the pan for the clams with a shallot and garlic...
Sauteed in some olive oil with just a trace of butter.
Little miss Stella stretched herself out across my toes and settled in for a short winter's nap. Srsly. She fell asleep on my toes. This is right after.
Birthday boy Ray helped by mashing the skins-in spuds, with just a trace of hot milk and butter.
I steamed the clams in the garlic, shallot, olive oil, butter and about one entire bottle of shitty dry white wine that was malingering about the kitchen. Yes, malingering. No one calls in sick dishonestly on my watch. Not even wine.
With some more of my organic produce I tossed together a salad of arugula, cress, avocado, pom seeds, green onions and goat cheese.
And someone else fell full snooze chin to the floor.
No, Jackson. Dog beds are not one size fits all.
