Tonight I made yummy Puy Lentil, Avocado, Baby Gem and Red Onion Salad with Pomegranate and Avocado Oil Dressing from my new Peter Gordon cookbook.

Except I didn't have sage and thyme, but rosemary did the trick.

And I didn't have pomegranate molasses, but no worries, lemon juice and brown sugar did the trick.

No baby gem lettuce, but baby spinach and ordinary lettuce did the trick.

We were a bit low on the avocado oil too, but Martinborough olive oil did the trick.

Our supply of red onions were out, but shallots did the trick.

Unbelievably we had puy lentils in the house.

Next time I might try and make the Warm Salad of Grilled Pear, Roast Sichuan Pepper Almonds, Balsamic Braised Red Onions, Mache and Gorgonzola Dressing.

Except I'll call it Apple, Peanut and Banana Delight. Apart from that, it will be identical.

hah! you and i could open a restaurant together. of course, there would be no point in printing menus.

we could print menus, and just have the wait staff tell the customers all the changes. We'd need to employ actors to remember it all.

We'd be like Team America.

You're just too clever in the kitchen ;)

Congrats on getting over the 2k hits mark.

Thanks Kate. This morning I put some milk on some muesli and called it toast. It is all about deception.
