Braised & Butterflies

February 17, 2010

Let’s briefly talk about the latter. I’ve had quite a few fluttering around in my stomach, and let me tell ya, they’ve been gone for a while.  That’s all I have to say about butterflies today… maybe I’ll share some more on another day… What/who gives you butterflies?

Moving onto the braised

Last night, I tried out this new recipe.

Braised Red Cabbage with Apples, served atop a bed of spinach and cloud of quinoa.
Dee-lish. And of course, I had to eat it with a Laughing Cow Wedge–naturally. This was both aesthetically pleasing and taste-bud-pleasing. Perfection! I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking into shaking up supper, perhaps with something a little sweeter.

Who doesn’t love this color combination? I know my appetite does.

It also loves chocolate, bread & chocolate to be exact.

The concept of bread and chocolate, infused together into a chocolate bar, is enough to make me purrrr. What’s your favorite Theo bar?

Sorry for the short post, but it’s been a hell’of’a week!

    does laughing cow taste like swiss or cream cheese?

    • merittothecarrot Says:

      To me, it tastes more like cream cheese. But a little nuttier than normal cream cheese, hence the swiss flavor. so a hybrid between the two 🙂

    mind if I be super cliche for a minute? thanks. Every time I see Gingie for the first in time in awhile I get butterflies. Every.Single.Time. Oh, a promising bowl of oats give sme butterflies too. Wish I were joking.

    Ahh, those Theo bars look so freaking amazing! I keep seeing them around the blogworld but I’ve yet to see them in a store. Hopefully they aren’t a US thing only.

    Butterflies.. those are rare for me. One guy gave me butterflies all the time but it’s sort of died down since I never see him and have realized that he’s not quite mature enough for me. Haha..

    Reading a truly good passage in a book gives me butterflies–the kind of passage that you keep turning back to; the kind that reads like poetry even if it’s prose or, if it’s poetry, just seems to state something so uniquely that you can’t help but think of it every time thereafter. Books and I are are tight.

  7. butterflies!! can’t wait till you’re ready to share more 😉
    mm you are genius! its been ages since i’ve had cabbage, that looks so good!
    bread & chocolate–i want some!

  8. Emily Says:

  9. Katie Says:

    We always have red cabbage and apple at xmas! Love it, especially the leftovers which seem to get even better. xxx

  11. Mmm.. I love red cabbage 🙂
    You truly have the ability to turn everything food related into a beautiful form of art! The photos.. the descriptions.. the combinations of flavours… every post seems to make me drool!

    I get butterflies around cute boys.. as I’m sure everyone can relate to 🙂


  12. Mmm that recipe sounds delicious; a combination of flavors I love. Perfect harmony 🙂

    I get butterflies when I’m thrown into a situation where I don’t know what to expect… that, and meeting new people or having to do any kind of public speaking.

    I never considered just placing a laughing cow wedge on a dish like that, but it sounds like it definitely upped the ante! I’ll have to be more creative with Laughing Cow!

  14. Karin Says:

    Oh I should make that dinner – I have all ingredients at home and it looks amazing!
    Nothing gives me butterflies. I’m such a bore!

  15. Katharina Says:

    I LOVE RED CABBAGE!! I have an awesome recipe that I’d be more than happy to share 😀 I tried the bread & chocolate one and it was pretty damn good! You should really try the hazelnut crunch. OH MY GAHHH. And the chai tea milk chocolate just straight up melts in your mouth and then you taste all the different spices in there. So delicious. I love 3400 Phinney chocolates–my fave!
