We are having friends over so I've been cooking up a storm. Homemade pizza with white sauce, chicken, bacon, and of course lots of cheese. Cheesy garlic bread. For dessert, lemon bars with raspberry, and cheesecake bars with dulce de leche and chocolate ganache.

We had a cookout for a friend's birthday. I ate a veggie cheeseburger, salad, chips with guac, loads of strawberries, a couple cookies and a few bites of carrot cake.

Yesterday was a potluck with chicken legs, hummus with pita chips and veggies and triple chocolate cookies for dessert.

Tonight will be whatever I pull out of the freezer.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

I used leftover lentil curry, added lots of tomatoes, and poached eggs in it for a modified version of "shakshuka," which I have been reading about a lot lately but have never had. It was SO GOOD! Oh, and we also had spinach and olives with a quick vinaigrette, and cabernet sauvignon.

Last night was deli chicken tenders with sweet chili sauce and Sriracha. DH had his on a piece of French bread.

Tonight is grilled skirt steak, loaded mashed potatoes, salad and bread.

Lasagna with garlic bread and a salad.

Cherry junk for dessert :)
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

Last night I was taken out to dinner by some visiting friends. They wanted Italian so we went to Giannfranco's, a small, local, family-run gourmet place that has been popular from day one. I had a wonderful beet salad followed by a to-die-for dish of handmade pasta topped with shrimp, scallops, clams, and mussels in a lemon-leek sauce. Oh my! We shared a very rich chocolate mousse dessert; thank goodness because even split three ways it was incredibly rich. My friend and I loved it all. Too bad her husband insisted on grouching all through the meal, complaining about everything. Didn't spoil it for me, though.

Whatever I make tonight is going to look just a little bit less appealing.

Vegetarian sushi restaurant feast to end all feasts at a top restaurant (Bon Apetit's "best little sushi house in America"). The rest of the party ate meat, but I quietly requested vegetarian food and was wowed for 10 straight courses -- or more. I lost count.
Just straight incredible, from salad to second salad to rolls invented on the spot to 'sashimi' to third dessert.
