Turns out this is one of those rare Sundays that I won’t be cooking. Weird, huh? I love to cook on Sundays, especially in the fall, oooh: cool air + time = soup or stew or roast or bread or vegetables or, or, or… But not today, man, our fridge is bursting with tasties, a…

Moving Day! No, not for me, heavens no, but for Susie. So, instead of Friday Morning Coffee with Suz, it was Load Up My Car with Suz’s Stuff, ha. It was…fun! Yes, fun! I’ve given her and The Coreman all sorts of crap about being too old for a do-it-yourself move, but it’s all actually…

It’s been a Cooper-ish couple of days, or is about to be, lucky for me! Nothing like a dose of Cooper Cuteness to brighten one’s day. He’s really into cheesy, buttery quesadillas right now, it’s great fun to make one for him and hear his “mmm” when he takes a bite, ha. His reactions are…

Happy Almost 40th Birthday Kim! Yes, even the darling Maven of Mischief has (almost) finally joined us old gals in the Over-40 Club. Yuck, not a club I aspired to join, but there it is, nothing to do but accept it. Still catches me a bit off guard – 40. Yeah. Forty, Kim! Forty and…

Oops, I Did it Again! Somehow I accidentally slow-roasted another pork shoulder, this time an Italian version (think fennel seeds, tons of garlic, oregano, and thyme). Same technique as carnitas, same silky, porky result. Rarrrr, LOVE it. Nice to have sitting in the fridge over the weekend, ready to eat as is, or toss with…

Holy Storm, Batman! Whoa, whoa, whoa. What a night! First, let me explain why I was foolishly driving around in what basically amounted to a pre-tornado. My Bizarre (Foods) friend Andrew Zimmern invited John and me, as well as our friends Aaron and Carol Mack (although only Aaron could make it), to join him this…

Perfect, we had a perfect dinner at Restaurant Alma last night. Cozy, fun, delicious. I love a restaurant that serves high-quality, beautifully-prepared food in appropriate (!) portions, so you walk out feeling fantastic, not stuffed, not ill. I love that about Lucia’s, and now I love it about Alma. I opened with a small celery…

Update! No Nick and Eddie’s tonight, some sort of permit didn’t come through for the opening (?), so we’re heading to Restaurant Alma instead. I’m not complaining, Alma is lovely and I’ve been meaning to go back for way too long. Thanks Rudy for quickly finding us a new res! So the bling is donned,…

Ditto Day! More roast beef (this time in a sandwich), more hiking in Elm Creek Park Reserve (so glorious yesterday, I whipped right back up there today), more warm sun/cool breezes (aka prrrfect September weather), all good, all good. Tomorrow night, dinner at Doug Anderson’s (formerly of Bakery on Grand and A Rebours) brand spankin’…

What’s not to love about a September day like today? Cool, clear air, warm sun, it’s out of control! John and I were going to head over to Lucia’s for one of our fabulous Saturday brunch dates, but after the Cocktail Jewelry party on Thursday night, with all the treats and wine, and with a…
