But some dishes taste better than they look.
James decided pretty late that he did want something for dinner (or maybe I wasn't listening -- oops) so I needed to whip something up in a hurry. I still haven't been shopping (I really do like the food from nothing game) so I got to be a little creative.
I sautéed some jarred broad beans (found those at a little Spanish import store -- delish!) in a bit of olive oil, prosciutto, and onion heavily spiced with chili peppers and oregano and garlic. While those flavors melded I fast cooked some potatoes -- dare I say it in the microwave. The beans topped the split open potatoes, tangy sheep's milk cheese topped the beans, and after a few minutes in the broiler dinner was served.
Not pretty but not bad.
