Roasted potato salad wins diners’ approval

July 1st, 2009 · 3 Comments · potlucks, recipes

I’ve officially been writing this blog too long. Or, I’m officially lacking in creativity and originality.  Why do I say that? Because, after writing about the Roasted New Potatoes Salad that you see above, I discovered I wrote about the exact same salad and only slightly differently almost exactly two years ago.

Lost week still had time for good food

June 1st, 2008 · 2 Comments · local food, potlucks

All right. Back to business writing about food. During the week in software sludge, I still managed to eat, and sometimes very well. I even took some pictures. So as not to let them go to waste, here are some highlights from last week: CSA delivery Lettuce, spinach, kale, mesclun. Perhaps you see a pattern […]
