D sweetly cooked this dinner, when it became clear I was not going to be able to get home till almost 8. I had bought a bunch of porcini at Berkeley Bowl on Sunday (yesterday) along with the whipping cream to make this dish, for which we still had half a package of scamorze left over from last time. I also bought a pre-packed bag of zucchini on sale for 40 cents/lb (from Mexico), and admonished D to eat zucchini whenever he didn’t have a preference about veggies. He cooked this up with some chopped onion. The onion got quite done, but it was delicious nevertheless.
We had more of the Acme Italian Batard (good for mopping up the last of the custard out of the bowls) and D brought up an old favorite wine of mine from Trader Joe’s called Valreas (2011). It’s a delicious wine, with a lot of interest and no negatives – including the price, which we annotated on the back of the bottle as $5.99. It was an excellent choice with this meal.
