Friday Night Dinner

Mostly from recipes...

Mushroom Veloute (Jacques Pepin)

Swiss Chard Frittata: Wash 2 bunches of chard and remove stems. Choose 6-8 of the flattest, most intact leaves and lay half on an oiled 12-14" non-stick frying pan. Fill with premixed: 2 eggs, 3/4 c fresh breadcrumbs, shredded chard, 1/3 c toasted pine nuts, salt & pepper. Cover with remaining leaves, tucking the ends in. Cook over low heat, covered with a lid that pushes down on the frittata. When bottom is golden (about 15 min), flip carefully and cook until set (about 15 min more). I served wedges at room temperature, garnished with arugula, roasted tomatoes in 3 colors, marinated beets sliced into matchsticks, and thin rounds of watermelon radish.

Salmon in Crespelle (epicurious.com) with sauteed baby potatoes, tossed with parsley and tarragon.

Dessert was apple crisp with homemade vanilla ice cream.
