What I Cooked

At the end of a week during which my mom seemed especially tired, and a week during which every conversation with the man who loves me contained the words cancer, or chemo, or radiation, this is what I cooked:


Artichokes. Pasta with pistachio/spinach/basil pesto. Heirloom tomatoes with basil and fresh mozzarella.

My friend Paula arrived with a lots of wine and chocolate.


And she brought her dog.


Now, if you'll excuse me, I think I'll go eat some more chocolate.

Friends. What would we ever do without them? And the love they bring.

Here's hoping that next week is better. The meal looks lovely, the dog is adorable and I'm guessing the wine was excellent. Take care woman.

That looks delightful. How do you cook your artichokes? They're such a delicious and beautiful vegetable, but I'm afraid and intimidated to cook them.

Good looking food! Dogs and chocolate are essential. So glad you have all this.
