FFwD ~ Next day beef salad, and more!

Since I have no left over roast beef
I pan seared some marinated beef slices
made the mayo, dressed the beef
draped the mixture over a bed of greens, reds and yellow!
our Sunday dinner:
next (same) day beef salad
served with corn pancakes
and endives, apples, and grapes
with olive buns to soak up any juices
sorry, no leftovers - all gone
above: endives, apples, and grapes ~ fabulous!
below: hubby's Sunday lunch
above: my favorite spice-crusted salmon
with pumpkin stir-fry
with corn pancakes

My Plum and Roselle Jelly
with whipped cream
 above: my hubby's portion
below: mine with half a kiwi for added color!
 my first harvest of Roselle flowers
consists of only ten bulbs so I added them
to the pot of plums boiling away!
I love these glasses for mousses, jellies etc
cause they are easy to chill away in the fridge
with their own covers
 my DH asked to make more closer to the weekend!

From Rachel Khoo's My Little French Kitchen ~ White asparagus in blankets

More cooking from
my collection of  Rachel Khoo's cookbooks:
Asperges blanches habillees
aka white asparagus in blankets

This looks simple to put together
right?
nope, the making of the pancake
was interesting but the wrapping part was tedious!
but hey, they got done in the end :)
.....
firstly blanched the asparagus in salted boiling water till just tender,
remove and straight into cold water
then I made the pancake: mix together milk, eggs, chives, salt and pepper
rolled the cooled asparagus in pancake and strips of prosciutto
serve immediately or cold
