I spent the day pulling molding off the walls in one of our bedrooms; the baseboards and the molding around the door. Other than the rug burns on my knees, I enjoyed the process. It felt good to pull out the old to prepare for the new. Oh, the possibilities!
This was a good week for a simple French Fridays with Dorie selection. We made an appetizer called Tuna Rillettes. According to The Food Lover’s Companion, rilettes is a pâté-like spread usually made from pork or other meats, including fish. I had a wonderful pork rillettes recently at Campo here in Reno.
Tuna Rillettes couldn’t be easier to make. Chunk light tuna, sliced shallot, curry powder, a pinch of allspice, crème fraîche, and salt and pepper are placed in a small food processor and whirred until it is fully blended and becomes a nice spread. After a rest in the refrigerator, spread on crackers and enjoy!
Yum, this was good! I enjoyed it as an appetizer one day and for lunch the next. The subtle curry flavor was delicious. I did an experiment on my husband: I asked him to guess the main ingredient. He couldn’t figure it out, but did enjoy the rillettes very much.
Have a great weekend!
