Olive Omelette

On the inside were mushrooms, onions, and extra sharp Cheddar cheese.  It was a good thing that I had my iPhone at the ready, because this baby disappeared right before my very eyes. The one-week report on the cataract surgery … Continue reading

Fancy Pants Chili con Carne

For some reason, when I fill my plate for a meal, I seldom remember that I will probably be taking a picture of it, so, as usual, the placement of the food in this picture is not ideal.  Clearly the … Continue reading

A Penne for Your Thoughts

Remember the Eggplant Ragout and the Mini Penne?  Well, of course there was leftover penne (so handy to have at the ready), so a quick lunch was available by sautéing some pasilla and red peppers, and scallions – then adding … Continue reading

Eggplant Ragout and Mini Penne

Eggplant . . . not my favorite food, but WOW – this turned out great.  And unexpectedly easy.  I read somewhere years ago that it improves the stringent feeling of eggplant if it is salted and drained before cooking/roasting it.  … Continue reading

One Potato

Now that’s what I call a LOADED baked potato.  Lunch was really late this day, so dinnertime rolled around, and neither of us was really hungry.  I had put six large-ish baking potatoes in the Crock-Pot, just to have on … Continue reading

Tapenade in Dressing 

   This bottled tapenade was really condensed, thus VERY salty.  I cut it with sour cream, and it was quite delightful on top of the roasted chicken breast the other night.  A little goes a very long way to adding … Continue reading

Crispy Burrito with Squiggly Sour Cream and Spanish Rice 

   A sour cream container is slow to empty around here, so I thought that a squeeze container would be just the ticket.  It keeps unwanted air and other debris from getting into the product.   I thought it might … Continue reading

Anasazi Enchilada

This is so named because I used Anasazi beans for part of the filling. Although this looks pretty fancy, it was dead simple. Inside there is the filling, which was merely the beans mashed up a bit with some of … Continue reading

Jam ‘n’ Eggs

Couldn’t wait to get this posted. I haven’t even done the dishes yet. This was sooooo good. The blueberry pancakes were the usual; the polenta was the usual; the poached eggs were the usual; AND there was no ham and … Continue reading

Strawberries and a New Kind of Cream

We have been having a run of organic strawberries at a reasonable price at Safeway now and again, and this is what they look like. Aren’t they beautiful? The taste is just so sweet and delicious that it nearly defies … Continue reading

Inspired by a friend’s (waving to Beverly) omelet yesterday, I decided to break with tradition and make myself an omelet for this morning’s SUNDAY SPECIAL. It is two eggs, lightly mixed with a generous spoonful of sour cream and poured … Continue reading
