When we lost power, I put some of the perishables into a cooler with ice. With the electricity off for 18 hours, the freezer had a nice defrost, dripping cold water everywhere. Perfect time to finally clean out the freezer from all the odds and ends that are squirreled away.
With the power back and a few groceries, I embraced the working oven and made a seasonal dinner.
Arugula salad with kalamata olives, clementine slices and lemon vinaigrette.
Roasted Brussel Sprouts.
Lamb sausage with salad and roasted vegetables.
The lamb sausage was not a hit, and but the vegetables were great.
