Picture Book

Just a few photos taken from my cell phone over the past week or so. Not the clearest or best pics in the world, but they make me smile.


Made some Spaghetti con Pomodorini, Basilico e Pancetta for Gia and I last night. Used yellow, green and red heirloom tomatoes this time around. Awe...wait for it...some!


Earlier in the week, I made a batch of Green Chicken/White Bean Chili for us.  I wasn't able to procure any tomatillos, so I used some yellow tomatoes I found along with some regular old red ones.  Not enough to change the color too much, and it came out yummy.


Then there are the requisite kitty pictures.  Here's Bootsy in his daytime nap position on the floor.  He's looking like a throw rug except that's he much softer when you step on him.


And then there's Gogo...one of the twins.  I don't really know what to say about Gogo.  We still haven't captured a real good picture of her.  Because she's always moving around, ya see.  And those eyes?  Yeah, always wide open like that.  She's a beautiful mess.  Hair coming out of everywhere.  Always disheveled.  We have no idea what she is, but she's our little Gogo.


And finally we have Large Marge racing her motorized scooter/wheelchair down a busy road in a real busy area.  This one is hard to see, so it might be worth your while to click on it to see a bigger version.  It's so worth it.

Savannah - So far this is the only dish I've used pancetta in. I should be using it more. After all, it IS bacon. :)

Candy - I highly recommend this recipe. Wanna know something weird? After we ate, Gia spoke with her sister in SC and her sister was making the same dish for her family minus the pancetta. So odd.

Slyde - I WISH I had a sweet ride like that!

sybil law said...

Marge is hysterical! There's some guy around here who rolls around in a regular wheelchair, and it freaks me out because I just KNOW he's gonna get hit some day!
Food looks awesome. I am now trying to figure out what's for lunch. I am thinking a simple BLT.

Suzi Q said...

That pasta looks amazing! You made that? I looks like it's from a resturant! That kitty? So cute! I just want rub his belly! And Large Marge?! Hillarious!

B.E. Earl said...

Becky - Gia cook? :) We are now accepting reservations for early 2011. Hehehe.

B.E. Earl said...

Sybil - me too. I have to run out so maybe I will just pick a little some-some up.

Suzi - It's kinda from a restaurant. A place called San Pietro in NYC. Best, freshest pasta I ever had. And they are kind enough to post their recipes. Follow the link on my post to an earlier post which links to the restaurant page. Phew!

I'll have what you're having! :D

Kevin Spencer said...

Cats are awesome. But do in no way compare to Large Marge.

Kaylen said...

That chili looks great - I would love to try it but I think it's beyond my cooking ability...

I love your cats - ha, softer, especially when stepped on! My cats never lay on their backs voluntarily.

oh my...Large Marge!!!!

Katie said...

I *heart* those kitties!
And I pretty much just had crumbcake come out my nose when I saw the picture of large Marge! Awesome!!!

Bruce said...

I think someday, we will all be large Marge. We have packs of these people down here in Arizona. The weather is always warm and the ground is pretty flat. These sort of people don't like snowy, hilly, climates.
