free Fall

Summer is off, Fall is back, as now the open air swimming pool has closed, the park opens too late for my schedule, shorts have all but disappeared from the streets and classrooms, the last raspberries have dried out, green tomatoes in my garden are unlikely to get any redder, the ant traps are no longer needed, the watering hose has been stored inside along the umbrella, and eating outdoors becomes a challenge, but the return from the traditional August vacation break has seen an explosion in the number of cyclists on my way to Dauphine, meaning I end up on most trips biking with (or against) other [100% nuke free] cyclists, with an improved trip duration (if not safer trips!). And no connection with the free fall tee!

melanzane a bruschetta

Posted in Kids with tags , , , , , on October 13, 2012 by xi'an

I often make bruschettas on Friday night, if only because they are easy to cook and make a light and warm dinner. However, I usually make them with toasted Poilane bread and with a mix of tomatoes and Normandy butter…! Last evening, I tried a new recipe where eggplants replace bread (and are sliced, psrinkled with olive oil, then baked for 20 minutes) and topped with pesto and quickly boiled tomatoes (to peel the skin away). This is quite different a taste, with the eggplants providing a soft and fresh counterpoint to the topping, and I think I will move to this recipe from now on!
