What’s for supper? Vol. 11: Here comes the quiche, doot-n-doo-doot

SATURDAY CANDY HAM and CHEESE CANDY CANDYCANDY Halloween was Saturday, you'll recall! No sense in making dinner when there's trick-or-treating to get done. They had some cheese sticks or something before they left, then got home and ate their way through a mountain of candy. After a few hours of this, I offered them ham and cheese. A few of them declined; a few didn't even bother to respond; and a few behaved as if it was the food of the gods, because it was so refreshingly … [Read more...]

What’s for supper? Vol. 10: ‘At’samatta for you?

This looks like a happy childhood, right?

  SATURDAY HOBBIT BIRTHDAY! Roast chicken, asparagus, braided stuffed bread, and roast apples; hot cider; birthday cake and ice cream.One of my four teenagers had a birthday. Fine, her birthday was last month. But when we finally got around to having a party, it was pretty good. It was a dinner party very loosely based on The Hobbit.Mommy blogging alert and disclaimer. I like making crafts, decorating cakes, and crap like that. It is fun for me. If you hate crafts and stuff, … [Read more...]

What’s for supper? Vol. 8: The Fanciest Soup Picture I Have Ever Taken

food blog tortilla soup

Question of the week: What childhood meal are you always trying to recreate? For me, it's beef stroganoff. I've used lots of different recipes, many fancier than the one my mother used, but I haven't been able to get it to taste quite as good. Maybe the missing ingredient is walking home from school, trudging up the hill in the snow (we really did live on top of a big hill!), slogging up the porch steps, opening the front door, and stepping into a warm cloud of stroganoff aroma. … [Read more...]

food blog fall veg

Question of the week: What's your "Yay, It's Finally Fall Weather!" dish? Something that you only cook or bake or eat at this time of year. It's okay if it's some kind of pumpkin spice bullshit. This is a safe space. Here's what our week in food looked like: SATURDAY Cheeseburgers; homemade fries; salad; cookies Today it's raining, and we've had a few frosts already, and have turned on the heat for the year. Love that cozy smell of toasted dust. But last Saturday, it was still warm, and Mr. … [Read more...]

What’s for Supper? Vol. 7: Meatloaf: A Tragicomedy

food blog meatloaf tragedy

Just the facts! SUNDAY Grilled pizza sandwichesThese are not only delicious, easy to make, and filling, but they are cheaper than making pizza, especially if you use pre-made dough when you make pizza. I find that I use about half the amount of cheese and sauce as I do to make pizza for the same number of people.We made these with cheese, pepperoni, and some bottled pesto. Spread the outsides of the sandwich with butter mixed with garlic powder and oreganoand on the inside, … [Read more...]

What’s for supper? Vol. 6: In which we enjoy the World Meeting of Families by eating

You people of Philadelphia, you live like gods.

We took the baby and drove to Philadelphia on Thursday, so I could speak at the World Meeting of Families on Friday. Philadelphia, it turns out, is far away, and it takes a long time to drive there. The baby thought this was bullshit, even despite the crackers and rice rusks and wagon wheel puffs we kept throwing at the back seat. We have decided that next time we decide to drive to Philadelphia with a baby, we will change our minds, and not. Anyway, here is what we had this past week, before, … [Read more...]
