Simple Supper

Last night I steamed up a head of cauliflower and a few peeled and sliced carrots. When they were cooked I added olive oil and Adobo and Parmesan cheese. It was excellent.

Three Grain Bread with Pumpkin

The other night I mixed up my regular multigrain* sourdough and I added a few cups of leftover pumpkin puree. It made a fantastic bread with a tint of orange coloring.

Progress + Efficiency are an Illusion

My microwave from 1990 doesn't shut off any more. But for years we used it with a kitchen timer. Recently our pal Steve gave us a microwave he salvaged from a kitchen job. This one does shut off but the beep sounds like a smoke alarm and scares our dog to death. So now when we want to heat up our coffee we have to take our dog into the backyard and run back inside and set up the coffee and then run outside and wait. Progress and efficiency are an illusion.

Casual Two Course Meal

My favorite two course meal is my home made coleslaw (it rocks) and a bucket of home made popcorn. This is living!

Lazy Pizza Toast

My homemade tomato sauce on top of homemade bread toasted is a quick pizza. My tomato sauce has lots of olives in it so it is a satisfying meal.
