I haven’t been blogging much and have a massive backlog of photos and would be ideas. It’s just the way it goes sometimes. I amazed myself with my dinner contributions tonight on the first night back to work after vacation by preparing a super quick but ambitious dinner gleaned from delicious magazine. It is a UK publication that I love and have a stack of in the kitchen from the weekend clean out of our third bedroom…more on that later. I flipped through and found this recipe for gnocchi. Salty streaky bacon, pesto and creamy toasted pine nuts tossed in a grocery store packet of gnocchi. Easy weeknight stuff in about as much time as it took to boil water and cook a few slices of bacon. To show my chops we also had homemade creme brulee for dessert-divine and comfortable.
