Ricotta and prosciutto ravioli with sage-butter sauce; English peas – 26 May 2017

Pizza with prosciutto, arugula, olives, and mozzarella di bufala – 21 April 2017

Fettucine with prosciutto, pine nuts, parsley, and lemon; kale – 18 January 2017

This is based on a recipe from Gourmet’s America – IIRC the recipe/photo that convinced me to buy the book, back lo those many years, on the same Costco visit when I bought The Pasta Bible. Woa. This is what … Continue reading

Open-faced sandwich with prosciutto and cheese: broccoli – 15 December 2015

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

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

Pizza with figs, gorgonzola, and arugula – 19 June 2015

Pizza with potatoes, prosciutto, and caramelized onions; baby bok choi – 11 January 2015

Eggplant “sandwiches” where the eggplant is the bread; leftover black rice with onions – 29 March 2014

Had a hard time deciding on dinner, partly b/c the ones that made sense required a trip to the Bowl, which is not advisable on weekends. But I did it. Went to the deli, took a number (81 – they … Continue reading
