I know about the rest of you, but I’m still suffering the lingering after effects of my horrible experience with the not-so crunchy chicken from a couple of weeks ago! I was so happy that today’s recipe was something simple, yet amazingly appealing. A couple of friends joined me for lunch because I had arugula to spare and share!
I was really looking forward to the croutons cooked in bacon grease, but unfortunately they didn’t live up to my hype! I may not have used the right kind of bread, but I think I’ll be sticking with butter croutons from now on. And the croutons weren’t bad, they just weren’t great.
The arugula was wonderful. It made me wonder why I don’t use it more often! The dressing was simple and perfect. All in all, this was a great week with Dorie for me. I think this is perfect for lunch. It’s probably a light light for dinner, but I wouldn’t use it as a side either. Am I the only one who thought there were a lot of eggs for each plate. I cut the eggs down for mine, and it seemed just about right.
As a side note, I made some peanut butter sandwich cookies for dessert and there was a typo in the cookbook. Don’t you hate that? It is a library book, but I corrected the typo anyway. I hope they don’t mind!
