the buddy system.

January 16, 2013

i so lack the motivation needed to get myself to pilates that it’s almost embarrassing.  truly.  i need the instruction of a class because without it, as louis ck says, “i’m just standing there in shorts” (except for the shorts part – i don’t do that either).  tonight i have a friend coming over for cocktails  & in the spirit of lightening up, i made these – very simple, very delicious.  i am also hoping that said friend will agree to be my exercise police. partner.


endive & lox (figure about 5 leaves per person)
endive leaves
crème fraiche or cream cheese
lox (i like wild nova smoked from trader joe’s)

separate endive leaves & place a small dollop (about the size of a nickle) on the bottom of each leaf.  top with a slice of lox.  garnish with freshly snipped chives.

    You set the schedule and we’ll be there, yes, and thank you for the mutual inspiration, always.

    Looks delicious! Might you be able to substitute the creme fraiche with one of the spreads that Rieneke sent you? Or would that be too strong with the lox?
