We had a fend-for-yourself food weekend
We usually eat in sync during the weekend. Cleaning out the fridge and stocking up for the week. Maybe cook a casserole or soup that'll last a few days.
But this weekend we went our own way and I loved it.
As I drove around running errands on Saturday, I was listening to WHYY's Chef's Table. And I was hungry. A bad combination.
But it was wonderful. The show's host, Jim Coleman, took a guest to a restaurant that has NO KITCHEN. Right. Ino Cafe and Wine Bar cooks with toaster ovens and panini presses. Yep, that's it. No kitchen. Check out this menu.
Anyway, I listened to Coleman share a breakfast with his guest, describing the magic of truffled egg toast, I turned the car toward Trader Joe's. I picked up TJ's 'bruschetta sauce' and a baguette, headed home and had bruschetta for dinner.. and again for Sunday lunch.
I have no idea what Sue ate.
