We could not have a week in the Knitchen without some Jack Bishop.  This was a yummy, simple dinner.  It did involve three pots and about forty minutes.  With an early “Bear Tracks Breakfast” at 6:00 this morning, a full day of kindergarten, and then a run after work, Robin was tired and ready for dinner.

Jack Bishop’s Polenta with Cauliflower & Onions


Robin and I had a wonderful dinner at Locanda in San Francisco with my parents during Thanksgiving Week.  It was a truly remarkable meal.  One of the first yummy things we had was a Pizza Bianca w/ Cauliflower and Calabrian Chile.  Tonight, looking for a Solstice appetizer, I attempted to repeat that dish.

The elements

Good for sure.  Not even close to Locanda.  The difference?  Their bread.  More spice.  Will work on it, though.  A funny dinner to cook.

Three for three from Heidi Swanson’s Super Natural Every Day.  The weeknight curry was incredibly quick and very tasty.  Even though I am still battling quite a bat cold and not feeling well, I was able to get dinner on the table and do most of the dishes in under 30 minutes.

Tonight is also a great example of why we shop ahead.  I am not feeling well, Robin has report cards to write (11 down, 11 to go) and take out was tempting.  We already had the food and the plan so it was easy to stick with the plan.

Super Natural Every Day  is going to be under a few Knavis Christmas Trees.  Great recipes, vegi and fast!
