Kitchen (Mis)Adventure -Chicken Noodle Soup and Nicoise Salad

On Friday night I made chicken noodle soup and Nicoise salad for dinner. I don't think they go together but hubby insisted.
Photo I took last year of my chicken noodle soup. I didn't take a photo of Friday's version, it wasn't plated as nicely as this anyway.

Not a photogenic Nicoise salad. I accidentally cut one of my eggs crosswise instead of lengthwise.

The chicken noodle soup is just what one needs on a cold winter's night. There something not right about my salad. I think it's the kalamata olives, it sort of had a bitter after taste, or it could be because I substituted lemon juice with Italian white wine vinegar. It's not that I didn't have any lemons, I have tree full of it but it was too cold to go outside and harvest one.

Carefully choosing his green beans

Bubby liked the soup and he absolutely loved the green beans (the tuna, not so much). This kid loves his green vegetables, how lucky am I?


  1. Bubby has gorgeous long lashes!!!
    We also have a lemon tree. I wanted to used lemons for tonight's dinner too but the closest I got to the lemon tree was to look at it from inside the house. It was dark, cold and raining where I am too. :-P

    1. Thanks. I only wished my lashes were as long, as thick and as curly.

      I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't be bothered to step out of the house when it's cold, wet and dark.
