Fall Wish List

So this is my Alexander McQueen wish list for Fall ! first off Fall is my favorite time of year the kids start back at school. The weather changes to a crisp morning and signs of scarfs & boots are all over the place ! don't get me wrong i love summer and all that comes with like BBQ's, Swimming, Fireworks and Smores ! But by this time every year I'm so ready for the kids to back in school and i can get back to my routine. And with school starting & Fall almost upon us brings school shopping for the kids & me ! (lol) no I'm not in school but i love to shop ! So this brings me to my wish list Of Alexander McQueen's Fall must haves or at least mine anyways !    This Leopard pony knuckle box clutch is going to haunt me forever i love anything Leopard and it looks so (Bad Ass) urban glam but so expensive $ 2,095.00 so i am pretty sure this item is very wishful thinking :( but i can dream.

Great Summer Salad

So last night i made this awesome salad that i order all the time at the Nordstrom Cafe and i didn't even realize that i had the recipe at home in my Bobby flay cookbook "Grill It" and it came out pretty great too the whole family loved and that's always a plus.  

Kosher salt
4 ounces fresh wax beans
4 ounces fresh green beans
1 pound fingerling potatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 pound red and yellow grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Nicoise vinaigrette, recipe follows
Spice-Rubbed Shrimp:
4 teaspoons ground fennel seed
1 1/2 teaspoons dry mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound jumbo (21 to 25 count) shrimp, shelled and deveined
1/4 cup olive oil
Fill a large bowl halfway with ice water and set aside.

Bring a medium pot of salted cold water to a boil. Add the yellow and green beans and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until just crisp-tender. Drain and immediately plunge into the ice water to stop the cooking. Let sit in the ice water for a few minutes, and then drain well.

Meanwhile, put the potatoes in a medium saucepan, cover with salted cold water, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until the potatoes are almost cooked through (a knife or skewer inserted into the center should meet just a little resistance), 8 to 10 minutes. Drain well and let cool slightly.

Heat your grill to high.

Once cool enough to handle, slice the potatoes lengthwise, brush with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Place on the grill, cut side down, and cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn over and grill until just cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Keep the grill on.

Combine the cooked beans, grilled potatoes, tomatoes, onion, basil and parsley in a large bowl. Ad the vinaigrette and gently toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and let sit at room temperature while you prepare the shrimp.

To make the spice rub, combine the fennel, mustard and coriander with the salt and pepper in a bowl.

Put the shrimp in a large bowl and toss with the spice rub until evenly coated. Add the 1/4 cup olive oil and toss to coat. Place the shrimp on the grates of the grill in an even layer and grill until golden brown and slightly charred, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Turn the shrimp over and continue grilling until just cooked through, 45 seconds to 1 minute longer.

Arrange the salad on 4 large plates and top with the shrimp.

Nicoise Vinaigrette:
1/4 cup wine vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon honey
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tablespoon anchovy paste
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Whisk together the vinegar, mustard, honey, garlic and anchovy paste and season with salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in the olive oil.
