Last night I made super potato salad with hard boiled egg, cherry tomatoes, peas, raw onion, garlic, and a horseradish mustard vinaigrette.

Tonight, fiance heated up some carrot-ginger-cashew soup and sliced and baked a potato.

... Yeah, we didn't finish off the latest bag of potatoes fast enough, so it's "get rid of the old potatoes" week around here.

Carrot-ginger-cashew soup sound delectable!  Did you make it?  Do you share recipes?   :)

We have left-over rice so I'll be stuffing an acorn squash.

Tonight I'm going to a baby shower which turned out to be a bait-and-switch potluck (grr). However, I really like the couple having the baby so I'm taking a hunk of fancy cheese from the refrigerator and a baguette from my freezer.

And can I take a moment to say it's unbelievably tacky for a couple who makes 6 figures to throw a potluck baby shower for their own child and his wife? Because it is.

I have made something similar before, but this was from a Pacific Foods (I think) box. I don't really write recipes down anymore since I stopped keeping a blog, but I know the key is fresh ginger and very well soaked and pureed cashews -- you don't want gritty soup!

pork chops stuffed with spinach, mashed potatoes, fruit salad. and brownies with peanut butter frosting.

So yummy  :)
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz

In soooo many ways.

For the record, the hosts, aka the father-to-be's parents, provided a plate of deviled eggs and a plate of chocolate chip cookies. For a shower with 20 guests. For their own child. In their lovely and newly renovated loft in a nearby city's center.

tonight: chicken wings
tomorrow: roast chicken
Tuesday: take away (choice of fish and chips, pizza, hot chicken rolls or noodles)
Wednesday: fried rice (probably using any leftover roast chicken)

I have leftover spaghetti squash gratin, but I have no idea as to what would go with it.

I was entering recipes for a cookbook project and remembered my warm kale and sunchoke salad, which I topped tonight with smoked salmon and lemon dressing.
