Meatloaf + mashed potatoes = no surprise. Chardonnay + dried apricots? Mmm. The last two nights have been slightly scrappy – using leftover ingredients, I’ve stumbled upon some pleasant pairings of flavor and texture:
- Last night, I added chopped celery, onion and grated apples to ground turkey to make a deliciously moist meatloaf. (See apple discovery here)
- Tonight we had creamy mashed potatoes with the leftover meatloaf. Always a very complementary combination of tastes and texture.
- The chopped celery also made a nice addition to creamy spinach salad – adding a refreshing crunch to each bite.
- For dessert, we had dried apricots which left a sweet, tart aftertaste that created a delicious palate with a swig of Chardonnay.
Sometimes it’s the little things!
