No posts for 4 days???

Wow - time flies when you're busy.....

While I have been doing some cooking this week, it hasn't been all that interesting, so therefore the lack of posts. Last night we had breakfast for dinner - always a big hit - and I made mini-muffins using the Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread recipe for a breakfast at school. Along with the muffins, I brought in grapes and clementines.

Stay tuned tonight for Wild Mushroom Bisque - an adaptation of a Martha Stewart recipe. It's been a very long time since I've made this soup but I picked up some shiitakes and chanterelles at Fresh Market when I was there this past weekend (the mushrooms still look good, thank goodness) and am excited to make it again. Since Fresh Market is 40 minutes away, I don't get there very often and it's a treat when I do. Nowhere near as nice as a Whole Foods or Central Market (we lived near Austin, TX for a few years), but beggars cannot afford to be too choosey.

Until later.......

.....editing, later add that our wine tonight will be/was 3 Blind Moose Cabernet Sauvignon. Much as I chose the Voga Italia because of the unique shape of the bottle, I chose this wine because of the unique name. It's actually quite good and I believe it was around $10.
