Fat Sunday

Have you ever seen those jars of "Alfredo" in the market? I don't want to sound like a snob but - yuk. Authentic Alfredo is butter, cheese, fettucini (I only had linguine) and some of the cooking water. It's all about the preparation:

Unfortunately... it's all about the preparation - and mine clumped a little (and I didn't even use all of the cheese)! I used tongs, not the big fork and spoon, and will use them the next time but will also reserve more water. Nonetheless it was it was delicious.

p.s. feel free to crack some pepper - and some onion, spinach and edamame on the side.

The end was some over ripe pears hitting it up with brown butter and leftover lime, buttermilk, graham cracker ice "cream".

No pictures of the latter and, clearly, just because I have a new "camera" doesn't male the photos "delicious". Maybe I need a photo studio next to the kitchen.

Salad for dinner tomorrow!

No really interesting food to report... I did, however, get my long awaited (phone) camera. Here is a photo of my go-to dish of cauliflower puree, salmon and rocket sauce with sautéed root vegetables, scallop and caviar (thanks Jason).
