Potato-mushroom pot pie

Julian wanted to go out on Sunday for lunch. How many times do I need to tell him that I don't like going out...unless on top of Rome for a 17 Euro Martini.

Pear-almond cake w/whole rye

Five pears were sitting on the table. Have been sitting there for the last five days. My first thoughts this morning went to them. Lucky pears!

Chickpea bread

No comments

Marzio talked about this bread. Marzio was our Italian neighbor. His caravan was just across from our tents, in Croatia. He knew about cooking, was very energetic and friendly. Romans and Greeks knew about chickpea bread 2000 years ago. And won some wars thanks to it, the legend has it. Centuries later, this traditional Italian farinata di cieci was called "the gold of Pisa".

Cream of pumpkin soup

It's OK. I'm not a big fan of pumpkins. I'm not a big fan of soups. But I'm a big fan of easy, fast, light and seasonal meals with an Italian touch and doing something different on Wednesday afternoon.

Plum-raspberry tart w/whole spelt

No comments
I bought a lot of plums again today. But the only person that is serious about eating them is me. Julian is afraid of plums because they are small and he can't really see a plum-gone-bad. Hania says she likes them but I'm not convinced. So I put the plums in a cake and everybody is happy.
