Pita-chicory triangles; hummus – 15 December 2018

Somehow the idea of making these pita triangles came up – oh right! this was driven by having an open, partly-used can of garbanzos. How to use them up? Small, quickie (i.e. not from dried legumes) batch of hummus, perhaps? … Continue reading

Orange roughy with original sauce; rice recooked with mushrooms and onions; radish greens – 16 October 2018

D suggested, since I was going to the Bowl and we had no specific plans (except using leftover rice) that we could have fish of some kind. This is odd, b/c he is not a big fan of fish, b/c … Continue reading

Using Up Stuff dinner, and quite a tasty one. We had the last too-thin-to-plane 6 square inches of the Danke cheese, a red and a yellow pepper originally intended for polenta with greens and peppers (soon, soon) and two large, … Continue reading

Grilled pork loin chops; Brussels sprouts; piperade – 4 December 2017

D grilled one boneless top pork loin chop from yesterday’s Costco trip, split into two normal-thickness pieces. He put lots of garlic slices (“which fell off”) on them while they awaited cooking and warmed to room temperature, as well as … Continue reading

Fondue with borrowed fondue pot; roasted asparagus – 12 November 2017

Our SIL L suggested we have the family’s traditional cheese fondue, the recipe brought to our (mutual) late MIL by a Swiss exchange student in the 60s. We were sure our FIL P would really enjoy it. Unfortunately, when D … Continue reading

So, I had to leave well before lunchtime – 11am or so – to get to the meeting place in SF, and had a small sandwich – defrosted chunk of a sweet Acme baguette, shavings of Fontina Valle d’Aosta (almost … Continue reading

Wood-fired oven pizza at a holiday party – 10 December 2013

Tonight was our annual “holiday party” at work, and I knew I wouldn’t want to eat much at home after the inevitable banquet of goodies at the party. There was less variety this year, but there was quite a treat … Continue reading

Dinner at Jasmine Blossom – 2 March 2013

We were planning a pizza for tonight, thinking we’d be out of bread. Instead, we had enough for dinner, but then would not have enough for lunch – yada. Anyway, D suggested we tuck away the last of the bread … Continue reading

29 July 2010 – Risotto with baby shrimp and fennel; green beans

Comfort food for D’s bad day – he found out he has a lousy location for one of his important shows, so he comforted himself with a most excellent dinner. The weather has been grey and cold, so having a … Continue reading

27 July 2010 – Chicken saltimbocca and rice; salad

This is a dish D discovered in, of all places, the cookbook we call “Chez P. veggies”. It’s a tossoff in a discussion of sage, I believe. The chicken is topped with sage leaves, which are in turn covered by … Continue reading
