honey soy salmon (I broiled mine instead of pan frying) and roasted okra with fish sauce vinaigrette (inspired by this momofuku recipe). I have to say, that fish sauce vinaigrette is INSANELY delicious and I highly recommend pouring it over any and all roasted vegetables from here on out! However, the okra took at least an hour to roast in order to get rid of the slimy-ness and get the edges super crispy, so I do not recommend this recipe if you are starting your meal later in the evening. We didn't eat until around 9 and by the time we were finished eating and then doing the dishes, I was exhausted.
miso butter green beans, but I just mixed the miso butter directly with the beans and skipped the poached egg in favor of a seared strip steak topped with miso butter sauteed mushrooms and shallots. Miso butter is one of my new favorite condiments, we've used it on corn on the cob too with delicious results. Luckily none of this took nearly as long to cook as the okra from the previous night, so we stayed up for a while after our meal sipping red wine and binging on Season 3 of Downton Abbey. Somehow we had a combination of both an extremely relaxing and simultaneously extremely productive weekend!
