Personal pizza with radicchio, mozzarella di bufalo, onion, soppresatta, and pecorino – 21 February 2011

OK, here’s the next try – and it was better. After last night’s attempt I decided 1) not to blanch the radicchio – perhaps La Ciccia’s radicchio is slightly crunchy b/c it cooks just right in the oven?? – 2) … Continue reading

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

Pannini and soup – 2 February 2011

Pasta with leftover chicken and sugar snap peas – 11 January 2011
