Good Eatin'........

One of the pleasures of cooking for a living is that there are often really yummy leftovers as was the case with dinner last night.  I was cutting up a large piece of sirloin for catering but cut a couple of pieces for my husband and I for dinner.  There was leftover chive and tarragon compound butter which topped our steaks and I served it with a simple but delicious tomato and avocado salad tossed in a greek style vinaigrette.......yum!


To make the compound butter simply soften about a half a cup of butter and mix in a small handful of chopped chives and chopped fresh tarragon.  Place in the centre of a piece of saran wrap, roll it up into a log like shape and place in the fridge until hardened.  Slice a pad of the compound butter and place on top of your cooked steak and let it melt!  This is also quite good on top of a piece of baked salmon or any white fish........enjoy!

Also, head on over to Janet Mallory's blog and check out her very generous giveaway of these gorgeous candlesticks...........I so want them, don't you..........


Have a great weekend everyone xo
