Week of August 19

Hello everyone, we are back from vacation. A trip report is forthcoming, but a nutshell review: Montreal is a fabulous place to eat. C'est vrai, bien sur.

We got back in enough time to do all those post-vacation things: laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning up any cat-related mishaps, etc. This week's menu is designed to be easy and flexible. I have no idea what my work week will be like, so I need to make sure that the meals are simple and quick to pull together.

This Sunday I will:
  • Make oven-roasted tomato sauce (I am taking lots of pictures of this so I can post the method for you)
  • Make ricotta (yes, I am a little insane - but it was so good last time)
  • Prep the lamb mixture for lamb kabobs
  • Grill some zucchini for the gnocchi salad (I will do this while we're cooking Sunday dinner, since the grill will already be on)
  • Make Sunday dinner

Hi Mary! This is your cousin, Julie! I meant to write you before after we were briefly in Maine in July and my Mom made your Thai Spiced Pork, I believe it was -- wonderful blog-- you're crazy (crazy-amazing, that is)! We are moving to Portland, Maine in November - probably the sister network has already filled you in - look forward to seeing you both in the coming year.
