|House guests, am I right?|
I haven’t felt compelled to post about our primary dish of late, tomatoes, because, as far as recipes go, I got this one from my mother. Slice it, salt and pepper. The tomatoes we’ve been getting from the market don’t need much else (though mozzarella never hurts).
My other favorite dishes lately all share a similar theme: cauliflower with pesto, tomatoes with pesto, and popcorn with pesto. All three have great flavor, great texture, and great ease of preparation.
You should put pesto on popcorn. That was post worthy. I promise to keep you better informed of fantastic snack ideas in the future.
On Saturday, my return to bed after taking Knightley on his rounds resulted in missing the HP farmers’ market, so on Sunday we ventured north to the Pilsen market to procure goods. It had a nice vibe but suffered from too many baked goods and only one vegetable stand. Nevertheless, it was nice to see the folks from Pleasant House Bakery there.
It was also nice to experience some cooler weather. Autumn! Leaves! Chill! We took a few strolls to campus, wearing layers and sniffling in the wind. I loved it, I loved every second of it.
For Labor Day, I accompanied Alex, dressed like a lumberjack, and Knightley, who insisted on wearing a fur coat, to a family BBQ. We went a few rounds in bananagrams and played pop5. Here are some of the clues that Alex missed—feel free to show him up by guessing correctly in the comments.
