Supercaulifloweristicexpialidocious – 12 December 2018

Wow. Not sure how I found this recipe – probably some ad popup that looked good enough to follow (and, after all, would have said “epicurious” so no doubt worth it). Anyway, it was absolutely scrumptious! The reviews on the … Continue reading

Lemon-herb Beef Kebabs with Couscous Salad; green beans – 3 November 2018

Pappardelle with radicchio and bacon; four-lettuce salad – 9 July 2018

Breakfast for Dinner: Fried eggs; Country Sage sausage; multigrain toast; pan-cooked tomato; green beans – 1 July 2018

We put off (again) a pork roast of some kind, in part b/c we haven’t settled on what kind that’s going to be, and partly b/c it’s Sunday and going to the Bowl is not optimal on the weekend. So: … Continue reading

Casarecce with boudin and porcini in cream sauce; filet beans – 1 June 2018

I gave D two proposals to use up the heavy cream I bought for last night’s dinner – salmon in cream with tarragon, or this pasta, which, obviously, he chose. It used only half the cream, but I won’t have … Continue reading

Chicken with tarragon/vinegar onion sauce; rice; green beans – 11 June 2017

Spaghetti with defrosted fresh tomato sauce with new mushrooms and hard sausage – 5 May 2017

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I weighed … Continue reading

Paccheri with mushrooms and boudin blanc; green beans – 14 January 2017

We needed to use up some white mushrooms, and I suggested trying my boudin blanc pasta with these instead of the usual eryngii and hen-of-the-woods (maitake). I had bought cream for [what turns out to be] tomorrow’s “poblano quiche” so … Continue reading

Speck; green beans – 10 August 2015

Wow, we’re both tired out tonight! D worked hard on the new studio all day, and I struggled on the phone with multiple error-prone organizations – more burnt out than physically tired, to be sure. Fortunately had planned a pretty … Continue reading
