The Week in Photos: October 2-8

October 2:  Started the week out with some good old-fashioned bread-making.  Anyone who has spent time in Madison, WI will recognize this as Stella’s Spicy Cheesebread.




Milo had a particularly rough Monday.

Tried a new recipe:  butternut squash pasta with pancetta and sage – amazing!  A great dairy-free pasta recipe if you ditch the shaved pecorino on top.

Biked to Pastosa today in Bensonhurst to pick up some fresh, authentic Italian pasta.  The bike ride from Flatbush to Bensonhurst was a true study in Brooklyn’s cultural diversity:  from Caribbean roti shops, to Kosher delis, Chinese dumpling houses, and Italian pasta shops.

The night before a big dinner party and you discover your kitchen cabinets double as whiteboards.

Spent Saturday night chatting online with Ravinder from Samsung Smart TV Tech Support.  He solved all my problems.  Why can’t online dating be just as easy?
