sunday lunch

Caldo Verde with our own Kale and caprese salad with our toms... finally we have taken pictures of food for you all!

Eating Alone

When you eat alone, it's so tempting to just put a frozen pizza in the oven, but it's also not that hard to make something tasty, healthy and quick. This dish is made with whole wheat penne, homemade pesto (basil from our garden), spinach from Dave's garden, home-grown tomato, and fresh mozzarella, topped with roasted pine nuts. The only thing missing was Papadam!

What I ate today:

with coffee

Late Lunch/Early Dinner

Leftover magic in a curry/soy sauce with a fried egg, homemade pickle, and griddled whole grain toast.

I finally got the hang of maki.

Cooking With Friends

Tagliatelle con funghi porcini (sort of)
more like:
Fresh Fettuccine with funghi Shitake (it worked)

Expert mushroom chopper: Jessica

Gotta have the fresh pasta from Luca Ravioli

And Sometimes you have to have breakfast and bubbly for dinner...
especially before heading out to some great art openings!

Oatmeal Waffles with fresh fruit and soy whipped cream!

Michelle bathed in light goes for toppings
while Jeff enjoys his custom waffle in the background.

Homemade Pickles!

I LOVE Pickles!

These were really easy refrigerator pickles, no boiling of jars necessary.
I'm still eating them even though I made them about a month ago.
They're are delicious, although maybe a little too spicy (I might leave out the garlic next time)
They turned out nice and crunchy.


That not having an oven... or a stove for that matter.. is NO excuse for not eating well!
Behold: Hot Plate Eggplant Parmesan! sort of..
There's no cheese actually.
fried eggplant & polenta
tomato sauce with olives and spinach

GOREmet Mountain Picnic

During my recent visit to Colorado, Megan and I packed some yummy food and hiked up Meadow Mountain (in the GORE mountains......get it?). It was a lovely site, beautiful day, great company. A nice rose` wine, some fresh baked bread, good cheese. What more could you want?
