Spaghetti with mushrooms, pine nuts, and parsley – 23 April 2017

We puzzled over what to have when – forgetting I’d bought a poblano to use up the cream in a “poblano quiche” – and settled on D’s signature pasta, since we had both mushrooms and parsley wanting using. Mushrooms sauteed … Continue reading

Common Grill Black Bean Soup; kale – 7 April 2017

Cheeses and cold asparagus for dinner at an unspecified time – 11 August 2011

Brie and bread before the City Council meeting – 8 February 2011

D got this dinner together before the City Council meeting, while I wrote a 90th birthday card to my uncle. Then we spent about 3 hours listening, and also speaking, at City Council. Love-hate – it’s a major pain to … Continue reading

2 September 2010 – Brie and baguette with fresh tomato slices

I seriously underestimated how much time it takes to put together a pie crust dough, and also how much time 90+50+10 minutes is! (That last is hard to underestimate, being a simple addition problem, but I managed.) Ambition: serve the … Continue reading
