A mother-daughter conversation on food and cooking (mostly)

Monday, August 27, 2007


Friday night we went over to the neighbor’s house for a swim with snacks and wine, then progressed to our place for dinner, at which we ate:

Slow-Rise Bread
Italian Pork Stew (from Rustic Italian Cooking) on whole wheat noodles
Sweet and sour leeks, served at room temperature
Chocolate Pudding Cake with Dulce de Leche Ice Cream and Fresh Raspberries (How Much Am I Supposed to Capitalize?)

Last night Grandma was here for Sunday night supper. We had:

Portuguese Scallops
Roasted beets with walnuts, parsley, olive oil, and vinegar
Green Bean Salad (see August 20th post)
Roasted sweet potato cubes
The same chocolate dessert leftover from Friday—somehow we had the willpower to save it.

We also watched a baseball game. My passions these days pretty much boil down to cooking, piano playing, baseball, and road trips.
