Happy Monday!!

We were fortunate to spend this weekend with a bunch of friends in NY, especially after Friday’s tragedy. It’s nice to have a chance to see people before the craze of Christmas sets in.

On Saturday, we attended a baby naming / christening, which was followed by a fun party for family and friends. The hosts told us they wanted to make punch, which seemed weird to me, since there would be older . . . → Read More: Old Favorites

Eating Local in Minnesota: Good Earth

One of the first restaurants I went to as a baby was Good Earth in Roseville, MN. I have since graduated from the Gorilla Cheese sandwich, but am no less infatuated.

Eating Local in Boston: Journeyman

We’re in Boston this weekend for a wedding, but are lucky enough to have friends here who are into the local foods scene. They introduced us to this amazing, almost hidden, restaurant in Cambridge, called Journeyman.

Leftovers and Tallgrass Burger

We’ve had a busy week, so we haven’t had time to do anything really interesting in the kitchen. We are doing a bunch of cooking tomorrow for the Superbowl, so we’ll have some post material after that.

We had a lot of leftovers from our party, and otherwise we stuck to simple meals that we’ve already posted about, such as frittata and roasted vegetables.

Eating Local at ABC Kitchen

We rarely eat out, but we ate out well this past weekend!

On Saturday night, we had dinner with my Aunt Jean, Uncle Wendell, and cousin Theresa at The Farm on Adderly in Brooklyn. Although we’ve been there before, this is our first time having dinner there, and we were not disappointed. They highlight local ingredients, small farms, and sustainability.

The meal’s highlights were:

Escarole salad (celery root, candied olives, lemon, olive oil, Parmesan) . . . → Read More: Eating Local at ABC Kitchen
