In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.

White Truffles!

My dad was in Italy and was able to bring back some stuff. He says he couldn't find any fresh truffles, but he was able to get some off the shelf stuff. My mom made some pasta.

Baked Sole

My mom made me dinner the other night. We have some canned foie gras from when she was in France a while ago.

Auntie Margie's potluck

For New Year's Eve dinner, I went to Auntie Margie's with my mom for a potluck. There was a lot of food... too much for me to really photograph.

David's Birthday

Forgot to put up a pic of my cousin David's birthday cake.

Spaghettini with Cream

Snowed in... bored... made some pasta.
