Dinner

We spent most of the afternoon cleaning the kitchen, and to celebrate we messed it up again. These are (delicious!) tapas-style shrimp with garlic and chilies. We had them with some homemade bread, some Spanish and French cheeses (our favorites – valdeon and bucheron) and some garlicky green beans. All made without a trip to the grocery store, no less!

Dinner

Patsy and I are on vacation at my family’s lake-house in Maine. It’s pretty cold up here but beautiful and quiet, and we are having a wonderful time. We spent most of the day today cooking. I made dinner – a fish chowder (turned out especially well, perfect for my slightly-sore throat) and anadama bread (a little too salty maybe, we couldn’t find dad’s recipe so we improvised.) Patsy is making a blueberry pie right now…
