Catching Up

Sorry, I've been delinquent in posting, however, I post to Instagram far more often:

With a near-empty fridge I pulled out some beef broth, 
Arborio rice, Romano cheese, garlic and the last of a bunch of broccoli. 

Paul made this cheese from yogurt so I roasted a few beets and sprinkled some oil on them.

Chicken and waffles at Cafe Meli 
(there is maple syrup that is not in the picture).

Four cheese pizza at Apart Pizza - an outstanding lunch on a cold winter afternoon! 
Richard found this several years ago and I have never forgotten it.
Highly recommended.

My family calls this Gunk-A-Zetti 
(I've probably posted this before but now there is the light box). 
Unlike the family recipe I par-boil the macaronis then fry them 
(and sprinkle asparagus on top).

Paul made this caramel / pecan ice cream and butter cream cake. 
Wow! He knocked it out of the park.

Pretty sure I've posted this before but there is the light box :). 
Mussels in coconut milk and curry with shaved (raw asparagus).

Paul found this salad recipe for Asian Pear, sprouts, celery leaves, parsley, scallions 
so I slowly poached a bit of salmon.

Light Box

I have a new light box for taking photos. Putting a dish under the kitchen light just wasn't working and it was apparent after the soup-a-thon with so many gorgeous dishes.

The dish is now under the same light but it is filtered. My buddy Heather suggested taking the photo over the dish rather than to the side and that has been huge, too.

Herewith, last night's dinner (fried lemon, chili flakes and fresh pasta):

If you like the new look, let me know! I'm not sure that anyone other than my sister (Martha) reads this.

p.s. the recipe calls for some parsley leaves. Heather said that the photo needed some...

parsley leaves!

Seven friends on a cold winter night.

Six soups.

Fun, fun, fun.

Indian Spiced Carrot

Potato, Bacon, Oyster and Scallop

Chicken Tortilla

Mushroom and Bacon

Cabbage and Carrot

White Chocolate and Berries

I really need to work on my photo setup - or lack of. I know that I keep saying that but these could of been so much better.
