Here are a handful of photos from my week in food snapped with my iphone:
Started the week off with a simple tostada supper: creamy black beans and crumbly cotija cheese crowned with this colorful slaw: shredded cabbage, carrots, peppers, cilantro, scallions, lime, a little olive oil, salt.
My friend Mary Ellen whipped up a batch of my Puffy Pancakes for her kids on Monday morning. She shared her results. Cute, no?
Bought a mint-condition copy of this classic at a school fair for 4 bucks. Score!
Tried my hand with the Coq au Vin recipe, which was doubly delicious on day two when I pulled leftover chicken off the bones, added a mess of chopped leafy greens, and sun-dried tomatoes, and ladled it over pasta.
Virginia invented stripey toast for breakfast one morning — raspberry jam, cinnamon, butter. Had to take a picture.
Sent my oldest daughter to the market with a shopping list that included fruit, lunch box veggies, and a baguette. It did not include enough cheese crackers to last us through winter.
Friends brought crazy good Three Twins ice cream for dessert one night. Sandwiched the leftovers between whole wheat graham crackers for an after school treat. I think the whole grainness of the crackers cancels out the the ice cream, yes?
How was your week in food? Try anything new?
