another rainy day

Posted by on February 6, 2010 in cook | 7 comments

It's dark and gloomy and wet, so we are hibernating around here this weekend. So there's not much to report, just soup, knitting, sleeping dogs, and Netflix Watch Instantly movies. I recommend I've Loved You So Long and The IT Crowd. The first is poignant and heart-wrenching, the other is bust-a-gut hilarious. 

I also made up a salad that was quite tasty. Mache (Lamb's lettuce), good bacon (I used apple-smoked bacon from Trader Joe's), avocado, grape tomatoes, and a vinegar-y honey mustard dressing. I also had some Almondina toasts from Trader Joe's, spread with Cambozola cheese (a soft, blue cheese). I highly recommend this combination.


If you're disappointed in my lack of creative projects, might I suggest you go see the quilt my sister just finished. You won't be sorry. 


  1. Everything sounds delicious. We must be living in Camelot. . . the rain comes only in the night and we are dry by 10 a.m.

  2. That salad sounds super tasty! I think I’ll have to make it next week!

  3. That salad sounds good. I’m hungry. Your sister’s quilt is gorgeous.

  4. that salad looks amazing…i want some now!
    just looked at your sister’s quilt…absolutely gorgeous. i also checked out your father’s blog…sounds like quite the guy. you have a wonderful family. 🙂

  5. OMG. That looks so delicious I may have to make it for dinner.

  6. You’re right – I’m not sorry…that quilt is amazing!
