I’m messing around with a few recipes in preparation for the cocktail party we’re having at the beginning of April. I adapted a white bean/sardine toast recipe from Jacques Pepin Fast Food my Way and made it a white bean and tuna toast recipe. Absolutely delicious, pretty, and nutritious too (although at a cocktail party, that’s not sooo important. Recipe is posted in comments, below.) Would make a lovely dinner alongside a bowl of soup or a salad, with a nice glass of red. Yummy and oh-so-moderate! Woo hoo!

Spent 2.5 hours at the car dealership this morning waiting for a few minor repairs. Not a good use of time, sigh. Luckily I was prepared and brought a book, so the time passed relatively quickly. This afternoon I worked briefly at the book fair at school and of course took the opportunity to pick up some cool books for Nathan and Cooper.

So I have two leftover pork chops and two leftover lamb chops…hmmm…had a pork chop for lunch, so I’m not in for chops for dinner, too. I’m thinking perhaps I’ll create a hash of sorts, chop the chops and saute with diced potatoes and mushrooms until it’s all crispy. Not a bad idea, right? Would make a nice meal with a simple salad. Rustic. Warm. And most important, delicious!
