Snack Time

As a person, who’s usually running around insanely and barely getting to taste my food, let alone enjoy it, when I do get a chance to enjoy my food I will frequently snack my way through dinner. A little nibble, a drink, a nibble, yum yum! So here’s two of my favorite snacky things on the specials menu (there are lots of favorite snacky things on the regular menu salt and vinegar popcorn anyone?)

The Green Dip

mustard greens, swiss chard, collards, Flat Creek Lodge Little Martha, aged white cheddar, grilled bread

P.B.L.T. Slider

Brasstown pork belly, basil mayo, field lettuce, tomato, fries

Roasted Asparagus

Banyuls vinegar hollandaise, poached egg, bacon

I want a snack RIGHT NOW!

The Perfect Breakfast?

Everybody has a different idea of the perfect breakfast. Usually for me it’s an excuse to eat dessert as a meal (pancakes, french toast, muffins, scones, sweet cereal are all favorites on Molly’s breakfast table) But sometimes when I’m feeling really hungry, the sweet stuff doesn’t cut it. So today I ate Brasstown Beef Cheeks with lentils, bacon, poached egg, young garlic, frisee, baby broccoli, crème fraiche. I decided the poached egg made it breakfasty enough for me. It was amazing!

Dine n’ Dash

Sometimes I feel like I have created the perfect meal, even though I didn’t do any of the cooking at all! I eat a lot at The Porter and I am always grateful to my husband Nick and his awesome sous chef Dan for the amazing ever changing specials.  I never get bored of eating at The Porter. Today the sun was out, but there was still a chill in the air, and I only had a few minutes to eat. So I chose Farmer Jeff’s Salad and the Spring Pea Arancini. The salad was delish in a buttermilk dressing with bacon bits and Elm Street Garden turnips. The arancini ( deep fried spring pea risotto balls) were paired with a new cheese from Flat Creek Lodge called Little Martha which is a single cream and therefore smooth, creamy and whippable. The Little Martha was whipped with olive oil and served as a rich sauce to dip the hot arancini in! Amazing! If I had time to add a beer something like Allagash White or Hitachino White would have been perfect.

Happy Eating!
