Pita-chicory triangles; hummus – 15 December 2018

Somehow the idea of making these pita triangles came up – oh right! this was driven by having an open, partly-used can of garbanzos. How to use them up? Small, quickie (i.e. not from dried legumes) batch of hummus, perhaps? … Continue reading

Supercaulifloweristicexpialidocious – 12 December 2018

Spaghetti in oyster mushroom cream sauce – again; pear salad – 23 September 2018

When we had this on the 21st, D used the “stems” of the very delicate, white oyster mushrooms, and they turned out to be rather tough, such that they interrupted the experience of the pasta. He decided to buy more … Continue reading
