Matt, Charlie and Bess joined Robin and I for dinner tonight. It was so fun to spend time with them all. We were amazed by Bess’s baby naming abilities; she really should be a consultant in this arena. We were also blown away by these pizzas. The best flavors I have had on pizza in a long time. To be made again FOR SURE!
My parents were Moosewooding it up in NYC tonight and it looks good! Currently this recipe is off limits in the Knavis Knitchen. Mavis says no cooked tomatoes.
From my mom, “This was really yum, dead simple, and nice with asparagus on the side. We had nice conversation during dinner and did not read the paper in the photo. A simple red wine, fresh oranges for dessert followed by a cookie. Bon appétit!”
For the record, we discussed the injustices of the Sonoma vs. San Diego State seedings at SW regionals for our “nice conversation.” It does matter, just so you know!
On plan but unimpressed. The vegis needed a little more something that simply wasn’t there. It did look good, though.
Robin did ask where this dish came from. When I told her 101 Cookbooks she said she had assumed as much.
Predictably Heidi Swanson and predictably good.
Heather’s Quinoa with tofu, kale, shallots and pesto.
My parents made a wonderful contribution to the Knitchen for my birthday last week, a Nespresso Pixie. It has been a wonderful treat for weekend mornings.
As long as I can kick the cold I am fighting I have grand plans for all new recipes in the Knitchen this week.
Sunday: Heather’s Quinoa from 101 Cookbooks
Monday: Salmon Bulgogi from Bon Appetit
Tuesday: A crew is coming over to see Erin who is in town. Take out pizza.
Wednesday: Despite amazing heat yesterday, it looks like it is going to be raining by Wednesday. The plan is to make a new chilli for a cold, rainy night. Black Bean and Sweet Potato Chili
Thursday: Bess and Charlie are coming over for dinner and I am going to try two new pizzas: Smoked Mozarella Pizza with Radicchio and Onion Jam and Onion Pizza with Ricotta and Chard
Scrolling through the Times on Friday I saw a special on calzones. This white bean and caramelized onion calzone stood out. As I headed off to Sawyer Camp to get in a three mile run I quickly printed the recipe and made it my grocery list. Quite easy and quite tasty. Vegan too!
