I’ve long believed that good food, good eating, is all about risk. Whether we’re talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime associates, food, for me, has always been an adventure. —Anthony Bourdain
It’s Tuesday, and you are already procrastinating! That’s OK, here is some stuff to read while you procrastinate:
- Failproof crepes + a crepe party: My boys and I had a crepe party for my husband for Father’s Day. It was a big hit!
- Eight non-cookbook food books to read this summer: Oh no, I have read none of these! More books for my Goodreads list, which is already out of control.
- Thirty-four Trader Joe’s snacks we could polish off in one sitting: I really should not read this. I need no more suggestions, but I will read it!
- Recipe: Portillo’s chopped salad: We missed this salad so much when we moved away from Chicago. Now we just make it at home. So good!
- Book review: “‘Little House on the Prairie’ and the truth about the American West”: Just finished Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder. I found this book fascinating. Author Caroline Fraser does a great job of describing how Wilder and her books fit into pioneer history and helped shape the way we think about that history.
Hope everyone has a great week! I will just be trying to stay cool.
