Suppers for Empty Nesters - MORE Magazine

I saw this article, and I got interested because the article's subtitle, "Simple Sophisticated Dinners" was spot-on. Not all of these are my taste, but they are described simply, use some of today's most interesting ingredients, and some of them sound delicious!

I can see why it's titled for empty nesters - partly because it's in a magazine for 40-year olds plus, but also because children are notorious for being really picky.

I plan to try a few of these, how about you?

Here's one that looks especially good to me:

Friseé Salad with Poached Eggs and Pancetta

Dice a thick slice of pancetta, and fry in olive oil until brown. Whisk together olive oil, sherry vinegar, Dijon mustard and pepper. Poach 2 eggs in boiling water for about 3 minutes. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon, draining off excess water. Toss enough frisée for two with the dressing, top with the eggs, and sprinkle with the lardons of pancetta.
