Tonight I got home from work and felt a little fragile. My husband Ross, being the saint that he is, let me sit at my computer watching trashy TV and took care of dinner. Complete with my favorite - roasted bone marrow.
Dinner tonight consisted of a bottle of wine, some nice cheese, a niçoise salad and a few knobs of roasted bone marrow with scallions and buckwheat walnut toast.
While Ross was compiling all his salad ingredients he preheated the oven to 425 degrees and put in the bone marrow (on a foil covered tray) - twenty minutes later the marrow was perfectly jiggly. Ross sprinkled each bone with some coarse gray sea salt and a generous pile of sliced scallions.
The coarse gray salt cuts the rich beefiness of the bones perfectly. And the scallions managed to add a little bit of summer to what I normally think of as a rich (fall or wintery) dish.
Thanks for a fantastic dinner Ross, I'm a very lucky lady.
