(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!
