Les Restes du Jour (The Remains of the Day)

There were no leftover blueberry pancakes for NOLA Boy’s pre-breakfast snack this morning, so I quickly made up some fresh French Toast – Pain Perdu.  I guess the name of the dish and “fresh” are rather at odds with one … Continue reading

Mushroom Burger

  Freshly-made buns, fresh tomatoes, sautéed mushrooms, Cheddar cheese, avocado, and a smear of Bleu cheese dressing complete this delicious burger.  After the portrait was made, I added catsup and relish.  The other burger on the table had a slice … Continue reading

Stir Fry with Orecchiette

After Seven Years

After DH’s stem cell transplant procedure in December of 2007, he lost his taste for bacon. We were never BIG bacon eaters, but it had its place. Recently there was a sale on the store brand of bacon so I … Continue reading
