Hey guys and gals! Hope everyone is having a good weekend. It's another damp day here, but it is supposed to clear overnight. I went to the market quite early this morning (sorry Shaun, I forgot to ask you if you wanted to go yesterday!). I bought another pound of fiddleheads (this is likely the last week they will be available fresh this year), and some asparagus and gruyère cheese for a tart I am going to attempt to make tomorrow. And yikes. Gruyère is expensive. $15 for a relatively small block! I biked my 21 km after breakfast, showered and made us both sandwiches for lunch and then went out did a few more errands. Brad's off to his dad's for supper tonight and I'm staying here and making pasta puttanesca for my dinner. I'm going to try David Rocco's recipe from his cookbook La Dolce Vita, which I just purchased. It looks like a great book with a lot of easy and useful recipes and ideas. David is a sweetie and used to have a series on TV called Avventura. He's a fun guy and very easy on the eyes. Hard to believe that it's been a year now since we wiont to Italy with Don and Mar and Shaun and Mary! One year ago right now, we were spening our last night in Roma before heading to our beautiful villa in the middle of Chianti. Time flies!
And I think I forgot to mention that we did go to see the new Star Trek flick with Brad's dad last week. Wow!. I was impressed. It was a great movie! I may even remember parts of it for more than a month!
Here are my recent purchases:
I bought this also becaue one can never have enough books on eating in NYC!
