I got the idea for this recipe in an old Bon Appétit cook book.
It was called 'Zucchini Pizza'.
I don't like that name…. My reasons follow the recipe.
As to the recipe…..
It was good, delicious, actually.
We had it as a first course and it was just right for that.
It was classified as a main course in … Continue reading.....
Deconstructed Turkey Rolls
I don’t like that term…. Deconstructed.
I hear it often on the Food Networks.
On the one hand, I think it sounds a bit pretentious and self-aggrandizing.

Or, maybe, it was just … Continue reading.....
Okay, here's a photo of mon mari's clean and tidy barn.
It's been like this all of one day and it won't last. but we have a photo record of it.

Of course, it would all be much more fun … Continue reading.....
This is a recipe from 'The Splendid Table'.
Well, it's based on a recipe from 'The Splendid Table'.
I'm embarrassed to say, I'm not familiar with 'The Splendid Table'.

But I don't get NPR here – although … Continue reading.....
Mon mari wanted me to tell you that he had to cut, rout, sand, glue and nail over 250 pieces of wood to make the drawers and doors for this cabinet.
I think he intended that statement to excuse the fact that it isn’t done.
It’s almost done….

Mon mari is back to normal.
Well, other than that ‘no lifting anything heavier than a feather’ bit for two more weeks.
On the bad news side that means he didn’t get to help me unload the last 6 metres of firewood this afternoon. (upper body exercise)
On the good news side that means I am finally getting the rest … Continue reading.....
