Tonight’s dinner was a remixed version of a couple recent meals: pork tenderloin, leftover mac and cheese from last night, and steamed broccoli.


This weekend, we’re having some friends over for dinner, and I still get nervous cooking for other people. Hopefully things will go off without a hitch, and I’ll have a bunch of pictures to share. Work has been incredibly insane lately, and I haven’t had much time to sit down and plan everything I need to buy, prepare, and do. Oh well, I guess that’s what Fridays are for!


Back in LA

Had a very lovely weekend in San Francisco…





More pictures to come soon.

So cheesy

April 7, 2010

This is the first time I’ve made macaroni and cheese when it hasn’t come from a box! I used Martha’s Creamy Macaroni-and-Cheese recipe.




So decadent! The lovely aroma of all that cheese wafting through the kitchen made me determined to find something healthy to put on the side. The only vegetables I had left in the fridge were 1/2 of a cucumber, a red pepper, and red onion. I chopped them all up, and drizzled with some red wine vinaigrette.


Dinner is served!


The best part is that there are plenty of leftovers for my lunch tomorrow, and probably another meal after that. The word on the street is that the creamy cheesiness reheats well – can’t wait to see for myself!

This morning, I decided to try to use up as many things in the fridge as possible. I saw lots of eggs, bacon, and tomatoes – frittata time! When it was done, I decided it’d be nice to have some flowers, so I ran over to the farmers’ market across the street and picked up these beautiful bunches of anemones and ranunculus. I got some tangelos and blood oranges while I was there too. Came home and pulled the frittata out of the oven (it was off, but I left it in there to keep warm), arranged the flowers, and had a lovely brunch at home!
