That was the easy part, and I was in a "lazy Sunday" mood. We'd had breakfast hash that morning -- cubed potato (one big baker), three scrambled eggs, three strips of bacon and some diced Manchego cheese -- so spuds were out. I settled on rice pilaf, a small can of mild chilis heated up with microwave brown rice and quinoa plus Peruvian lentils. While it is not low-sodium, the combination makes a tasty, low-effort side dish. It went well with the bison steaks, which Tam had received as part of a Christmas gift from one of her employers.
One of our favorite snacks of late is truffle-salted popcorn. The flavor is richly indulgent, and it has taken me three bags of the stuff and over a month to realize that of course you can buy truffle salt. Ordered and on the way, perhaps in time for the next grill session.
