End of a long week ...

Friday night found us both exhausted. I tried to come up with something good for dinner but did not have it in me, we were two tired souls for dinner. All I could come up with was Eggplant Masala (into Indian food lately) and a caramelized shallot Quinoa. Simple and good!

Not Cooking ...

I have not had a chance to get behind the stove all week, hence the reason for no new stuff! L. is traveling (which is not the excuse) and I have been working over-time! I have some great ideas brewing, though, and can not wait to WOW my man when he gets back with some great meals. Hoping to hit the kitchen, again, tomorrow. So please keep checking in & dine with us soon ......

I can not wait ..

to know what the October Challenge is! I was hoping it would be announced before I start my day. I am an addict now - an addict to the DB group! Someone, Help Me!

The 3 Ps' for Dinner

Plums, Pizza & Pinot Noir and some Lamb (yes, I know, more meat); but, we did cut down portions! We have been waiting to open up this bottle of Pinot Noir, that our friend I. and company (Dept. C) are making but we needed the right dish.

Recently, there was an article in the SF Chronicle on Pinot Noir and what to serve ... there it was Lamb, Plum & Smoked Mozzarella Pizza , so we whipped up a mini, tossed together a simple mixed green salad with radishes (just like grandma use to make) and popped up the Dept. C. Point Noir - the meal was great, the pizza was interesting (I will make again but add more spices to it) and the Pinot was smooth and definitely complimented everything in the pizza. As well, this was the last meal for our Eat Local Challenge - everything was local this time!!!
