Re: Today I Made:

Y'know what's nice? Weather getting cooler so that turning on the oven doesn't just make everyone sad.

So it's baked potato time. Nom. I've been having mine with cheddar, salsa and sour cream.

Well, okay, not a lot of life here, but let's try this again?

Saturday, September 19th at Boston Common by the Frog Pond at 2 PM. It's not supposed to rain this time!

Re: Today I Made:

What kind of cheese do you use in the Caprese quiche? Do you have to use a low-moisture mozzarella, or does the regular stuff work? I used fresh that's not kept in water, which seemed to do enough to make it not too liquidy. I do admit I tried to strain the tomatoes a bit, too, though, to improve m...

So picnics. We should do that in September before the weather turns.

Right now in a completely unprecedented event I actually have nothing scheduled for any of the next three weekends.

Anyone a) really interested in picnicking, and b) invested in a specific weekend this month?

This weekend I made a couple pizzas (one just peppers, onions, fresh mozz, the other a silly breakfast pizza with egg, zucchini, onion, fake bacon, tater tots, eggs and a couple cheeses). I tried garlicking up the dough, but didn't really do enough. Next time I will be less subtle.

Re: How much coffee do people drink in a day?

I'm weird about coffee. I probably on average drink maybe 4 oz a day or less.

Sometimes I'll get iced coffee with cream in if I'm out and about, or a caramel macchiato (and ...
