Dinner and Self-portrait (composition sans writing utensil)

Last week we made sushi. You can see a picture of what I would call a Philadelphia roll instead of a California roll (we used cream cheese because our avocados were not ripe yet) over at Tina's much more interesting and fun blog. I will just mention how pleased I was at the flavor and look forward to doing this again soon (the rice takes some time and patience). Oh, one more thing: I got the recipe/technique 100% from an episode of Good Eats on the ol' Tivo. Love that Alton Brown.

Here is a picture of our dinner this evening: Spaghetti with scallops, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach (in a cream sauce) with roasted yellow & orange bell peppers, mushrooms and carrots:


  1. Looks very tasty. Can't go wrong with scallops.

  2. JON! I saw you made a yummy dinner by Alton Brown- and I have never tried one of his recipes, but I made chocolate chip cookies by him called "the chewy" and they are the BEST choc chip cookies I have EVER made!! You have to try them! Here's the link:


    Looks like everyone's doing well in IL! Happy Thanksgiving! Miss you guys!
    Love, Katie
