FFwD: herbed olives
I haven't been blogging last week for good reason. I didn't have my computer at home. I blinked my eyes and then it was gone. My husband needed it for very good reasons (he had a business exchange), where he held a demonstration of his photography work (he is a very good photographer in my opinion (check out: www.janssen-fotografie.nl if you like). And I could not post.
But today he came back and here I am again.
In America yesterday was thanksgiving, and I do love the idea to be grateful. So we also stood still at that day, to be grateful. We don't know thanksgiving in the Netherlands, so we still had to work. The turkey didn't make it to my plate therefor.
But I had a few guests on wednesday for a very nice workshop, and I had to take care of the snacks.
We were free to choose something from the great book around my french table from Dorie Greenspan and I choose the herbed olives.
It was a great succes. I only forgot to get the kernel out of the olives, a small error.
And not only did this taste great (and also did smell very good), it looked great in the jars.
We aren't supposed to blog the recipe on the blog, but you can find it on the internet, for example at the following link:
And don't forget to give your partner an olive before you kiss him / her (because of the garlic added).
