This is undiscovered country for me. I plucked a sauce out of Julia Child, then … true to form.. modified it to make it tastier. Take 2 cups of well seasoned bechamel sauce.. add 1/4 cup tomato paste.. and a squiddly bit more salt and pepper.. a squeeze of lemon.. and you’ve got a WAY under-utilized new favorite of mine!
I poached some filet of sole in the aurore sauce so it was super moist and delicious. I served it over white rice (in case you didn’t see the pile of it in that last picture. I paired it with some sauteed spinach with a splash of cider vinegar.
All in all, a delicious meal!
My boyfriend and I were discussing a rating system for my meals.. and we both decided that Rolling Stones songs were the best way to go. Let me recap the week for you in song so far.
1) Pork in Berry Sauce – Jumpin Jack Flash
2) French Onion Soup – Time Is On My Side
3) Macaroni and Cheese – Beast of Burden
4) Sole in Aurore Sauce – Honky Tonk Woman
… We had a very heated debate about these.. and now I’m going to bed. See you soon for Day 5.
