(us. a fab drawing by moi)
Anniversary Dinner on the Cheap - mussel bisque and stilton walnut crackers courtesy of Ina Garten, Clicquot and red red roses courtesy of one David Kluvers, a lovely salad to round it all out, and a playlist heavy on the cheesy love songs.
making a leisurely shopping list, never a bad way to start a day.
Asparagus, soon to be broiled and proscuitto-hugged.
Stilton and walnuts
On the way to cracker - dom
Whizzed-up stilton, softened with butter, sharpened with pepper.
flour + fat = Dough.
Dough is chilled. sliced, baked.
Luxurious salad of hearts of palm and avocado - more than you could ever eat.
Mussels, tomatoes, white wine, onions, carrots, leeks, heavy cream, half & half. + simmer...
After 6 years, he knows the true path to my heart - BUBBLES!
