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

BLTs; carrot; magically appearing cake – 8 November 2015

We had sandwiches for both lunch and dinner today. We have been sorting out the food we have that wants eating (filet beans, tomatoes, cream, basil before the cold weather hits, etc.) and have five dinners on the list. Since … Continue reading

Cannellini and prosciutto salad (aka “speck”); prosciutto-wrapped figs; green beans – 21 June 2015

A 12-picture day! – lots of memorable food, including a Father’s Day treat from R, of course. I have a semi-choreographed ballet of ingredients-to-use-up, of which dinner was a part, but I can never keep all the elements of it … Continue reading

Cheese? and Pear salad before an early flight – 21 December 2014

There was no imagining that I could cook the night before a 6am plane flight (and 4am departure, and 3am alarm), so D of course too over. I asked if we could have one of the two pears R gave … Continue reading

Omelette with chile sauce; turnip greens – 31 July 2014

D made a sorta omelette tonight, to try out this nifty fermented (?) chili sauce I got at the Tuesday farmers’ market. I’m writing this the 11th of August based on photos, so unfortunately I don’t recall all the details. … Continue reading

Pizza Margherita; lettuce salad – 18 July 2014

D was going to cook tonight, but was going to be home late. I was going to cook this pizza tomorrow, but was home all day. So I suggested switching, especially since I could put this together so easily, even … Continue reading

Spaghetti and salad at Mom’s – 21 May 2014

Arrived at Mom’s for a 2 week visit. She wanted to have spaghetti, and I helped a bit to put it together, but basically followed her instructions. She uses Ragu, for convenience. I “defrosted” about 2/3 pound of hamburger by … Continue reading

Leek and olive tart; asparagus with aioli – 24 March 2014

On spring break, so I’m doing the cooking for this week. I made a dish from the second Greens cookbook, which I’ve made before and we’ve really loved. Basically, a yeasted, unkneaded crust of flour, water, softened butter, lemon zest, … Continue reading

Pizza with grilled eggplant and red pepper, feta; lettuce salad; Brussels sprouts – 22 March 2014

I really liked this pizza a lot, and D did too! I used 1/3 recipe of crust, about 1/2 a “medium” eggplant, and one smallish (long and thin) red pepper for this recipe. D and I planned to plant some … Continue reading

Chicken Saltimbocca; black rice; broccoli; fresh tomatoes – 1 October (already??) 2013

We went to Costco on Sunday and bought, among very  many other things, chicken breasts. This, and the fact that I left some prosciutto led D to think of cooking Chicken Saltimbocca, a recipe that he found, ironically, in Chez … Continue reading

Pizza with caramelized onions, bacon, and fresh mozzarella; romano beans – 16 June 2013

This is a variant on Friday’s (14th) broiled pizza attempt. I think I liked that crust better, but this one was not up to my usual standards, so not a good experimental comparison, unfortunately. I used 1/3 of my usual … Continue reading

Spaghetti with tomato-mushroom sauce; avocado salad – 11 July 2012

Our friend M was arriving but we didn’t know when, since he had an 11 hour drive. I had an idea what to make, but forgot his aversion to Roquefort, so we had to come up with another idea. D … Continue reading
