oh the food that we have eaten

I haven't posted any food in quite a bit. Upheaval here at La Casa B has made eating a sporadic event. Anyhow, things are getting more and more back to normal, and so should this here blog. Get ready for a bunch of food pics. (Actually, I think I can only post five or so pictures so there might be two posts...or, maybe we haven't eaten at home that much. Hmm.)

Cardo made this meal. Tuna, couscous and asparagus. It was good. The gigantic mug of hot tea was mine (I was ill with strep) and the Dos Equis was his (he was also ill with strep).

I made acorn squash again. This time, I did one savory and one sweet. The one on the left had thyme (or something), butter and lots o' garlic. The one on the right had maple syrup, butter and cinnamon. Also, hey look, there's more asparagus.

Cardo cooked again. More tuna (good again), more asparagus (I'm addicted), cauliflower with cheese sauce (some frozen product) and sauteed mushrooms.

This meal was inspired by the pasta dish I had at the Mimi's in Roseville. Whole wheat penne; olive oil; cheese (of some variety); sauteed mushrooms, zucchini and yellow squash. Topped with diced tomato. If I had any idea how to do garlic butter wine sauce stuff, I would have made it (I don't even know what it is, though, so fat chance of me ever making it. It's healthier this way anyway, no?)

This was Sunday night (I turned off the camera's date stamp and I forgot to turn it back on until just now). BLTAs again. Same Trader Joe's artisan bread as last time. Costco turkey bacon this time. Some mesclun, tomato and avocado. I made baked sweet potato wedges to go with them. Um, some cooked more than they maybe should have, but I swear (by the moon and the stars in the sky) that they tasted good.

Okay, so that took me a century-and-a-half to post. Now, I have seven more food pictures (meaning two more posts). There has got to be an easier way to do this. I'm not re-editing anything after this is posted, so please just deal with any wonkiness.

Oh, one more note here. I can hardly believe that for over two decades of my life I didn't find avocado or asparagus worthy of drooling over. What the crud was wrong with me?
