split pea & millet salad with lemon vinaigrette

I don’t post every meal I make on this blog. Let’s face it, sometimes what I make turns out like crap. Usually, I’m pretty good with the cooking and the baking, but sometimes things go wrong and the end is badness. Or sometimes the meal I make is totally kick ass fantastic but my photos come out lousy. But sometimes, things get lost in the shuffle. The food was amazing, the photos turned out pretty good and they get posted on my flickr account and I mean to write something….but I get distracted by the next pretty thing and out of my head it goes.

I’m a flighty blogger but I’m making up for it. Over the next few weeks, I’ll be playing catch up and posting some of those forgotten (but oh-so-yummy) recipes. It’s also a bit of summer break for me so my posting will be done automatically while I’m away…like right now, in fact, where I’m probably eating a bagel in Montreal. Don’t fear, I’m not posting the dregs of my kitchen but hidden wonderful gems! So please comment as per usual and I might even chime in from the road.

    More drawings please! Those are priceless. Sometimes I am just too tired of the food – thinking about it, shopping for it, preparing it, eating it – to take it's photo. I need to be better about that. I love millet but don't use it very often. I love what you did here!

    Huh? What? Did I hear Montreal??

    I hope if you're in my neck of the woods you drop me a line and we'll go for poutine.

    Bon voyage!

    Millet doesn't get much respect among grains, so I'm so happy to see this recipe. I think it looks wonderful and can't wait to try it.

    I have some sort of weird millet obsession right now… this looks perfect for my healthy lunches plan!
