“Poblano quiche”; panzanella – 24 June 2017

Leftover nasturtium pasta; broccoli – 21 June 2017

Penne with nasturtiums in a cheese/cream sauce; baby bok choi – 20 June 2017

Sandwich and marinated, roasted red peppers in the concert venue’s parking lot – 6 June 2017

I always forget to photograph dinners that are significantly out of the ordinary. Well, I guess I’ve got an excuse for this one. Arrived after 2 1/2 hours driving what should have been a 70 minute trip, and didn’t really … Continue reading

Ungreat personal asparagus pizza – 19 May 2017

Darn. I was really looking forward to this pizza, but it wasn’t really much good. Not sure why. Too much asparagus and/or cheese shrouding the scallion taste, perhaps? Asparagus not tasty enough? Really don’t know, since my previous renditions of … Continue reading

Bitty bit of fresh pasta with tomato/chevre sauce; asparagus with aioli – 3 May 2017

Still using up the Laura Chenel goat cheese we opened. Costco is now selling this in a terrible container – too large, and too vulnerable once opened. Bring back the 11-oz logs! But we make an attempt 🙂 I weighed … Continue reading
