I love the fractals of the romanesco! Its orange companion was called cheddar.

You can make a delicious colorful gratin with these. See my cooking blog for Cauliflower Mascarpone Gratin.  The original recipe was from Family Style Food

Thank you NaBloPoMo

I’m feeling unwell today. The queen of worst case scenarios says e coli but logical brain says not. We’ll see what tomorrow brings. December already!

I have enjoyed my month of daily posting. Whether or not I keep it up is another story, but it's been fun.  See ya around.

Signs of Xmas

It's after TG. It's allowed now!

Found this on a rare WalMart visit. $6.92! Such an odd amount.

This shirt too!

I channeled my inner Grinch for the book store's window.

This looks pretty festive. Unfortunately, the red tortilla was stale.

You Expect Me to Eat That?

I don't think any words are necessary here.

Too many junky emails lead me to places I don't need to go.

Do I need these?

Or these?

They're both me. Alas, I think I have enough cute socks. I have really moved on from the days when I wore the kids hand me downs.

Here are today's selection.

I bought some frozen calamari with the intent of recreating this recipe from a favorite local restaurant.

Frank took up the gauntlet for me. After organizing the parts to my new food processor (oh now there's a saga for another time) he pureed the cheesy filling and stuffed the little buggers.

We felt concern for whoever preps these in the restaurant, but they probably have a better skill set than we do.

Oh they were delicious.
