homemade gnocchi

Gnocchi is delicious. And although this wasn't the more common potato variety stuffed with a yummy, cheesy filling, they were still awesome because they were homemade.

I'm on a vegetarian cooking kick. My husband is the least picky eater ever, which is the best. It was actually his idea to try to eat more vegetarian meals. Nice going, Luke.

 

 

Isn't there just something about kneading dough? I've always wanted to get into breadmaking. I just love that process of creating and working the dough.

 

After rolling out the dough into long strips, I cut them into pieces and shaped them with fork prongs. To make them fancy. BTW, I used this recipe.

 

 

The swiss chard was straight out of Richard and Stella Novack's garden. So, so, so good. I had the privelege of sitting in the garden with their daughter, Mary, my very dear friend, while they picked me a vegetable goodie bag last week.

 

 

Luke was a little more excited about the meal than he looks. I think. :) Recipe here.

What are you doing this weekend? We're driving to Pennsylvania and back for the second weekend in a row. My cutesy nieces are having a triple birthday party (my brother and sis-in-law are smart -- three birds one stone).

 

An inspiring story (one I can appreciate as a former waitress) about a man's last wish.

One of my very sweet girlfriends is having a baby. Eek!

This had me laughing out loud. Yeah, you're ridiculous, real Yelp users.

Really cool company selling shoes to empower women.

 

happy weekend!
