I'm not dead and other things

By Tuesday, November 09, 2010 , , , ,

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. We've been consumed by buying a house and the associated packing that goes with it, but, don't worry, we have been eating (were you really worried about me not eating?). The last farmers' market of the season was on Saturday. It's always a little sad as it is a big part of our Saturday morning riutal and the weather has been pretty amazing, so that makes it even more bittersweet. I loaded up on squash, carrots, brussel sprouts, potatoes, and onions for our winter pantry, while also indulging in some fleeting frost-sweetened spinach and spicy mixed greens. With packing being our main focus, our menus have definitely simplified and leftovers are my best friend. We're really digging my simplified version of Suzanne Goin's roasted squash salad with bitter greens and lardons of bacon. It's divine and the only reason you need to pick up her gorgeous cookbook, Sunday Suppers at Lucques.

Here's what we're eating this week...

Menu: week of 7 November 2010

Sunday: Split pea soup made by my sister Holley (so nice and yummy)

Monday: Take out

Tuesday: Spinach and sausage pasta

Wednesday: Roasted squash salad with lardons and bitter greens

Thursday: Onion tart served with a fennel-apple salad

Happy eating, -s.

  1. glad to see you back in my google reader. i also wanted to let you know that i was asked to bring an appetizer to a dinner party last weekend and i made your recipe for pumpkin seed and tomatillo pesto over goat cheese (i think from sometime last year). it was a HUGE hit! i got so many compliments on it and passed your recipe along to some friends. also -- i had extra pesto so i put some over scrambled eggs (with some goat cheese too), and it was also to die for. so keep the recipes coming! and good luck with the move!

  2. Thanks Anne -- so glad that you liked it! The pesto with the eggs sounds AMAZING -- what a good use for the leftovers. I will definitely have to try that! You are too sweet.
