Dad’s resting up for our show tonight (One Man, Two Guvnors) so I’m writing a quick blog post. I’m still experimenting with last weekend’s honey yogurt waffle recipe (they weren’t crispy enough, but I did like them with the addition of plums and cardamom). However, we tried out the maple blueberry sauce (I used fresh berries and didn’t strain it) and I also cooked down some strawberries and rhubarb for a second topping (a quart of strawberries and roughly 1 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb, with a few tablespoons of sugar, plus enough water to cover the bottom of the pot. Simmer and stir occasionally until soft and thick. Add some lemon juice and vanilla to taste before serving). Both were excellent with whipping cream or yogurt, or as stand-alone toppings.
We took Audrey to Best Pizza and had a pie topped with bacon and garlic. Still one of the best. Also went to a cooking class with Maggie – it was more about socializing, but it was cute to see everyone so excited about doing things in the kitchen. I was a bit disappointed that the meal wasn’t more seasonal. It seems like such a crime to ignore the beautiful produce bursting forth from the market at an alarming rate. Dad and I did our part and ate corn and an heirloom tomato salad for brunch this morning, with gooseberries and peaches for dessert.
A new moon for Pluto – “It’s like, since being kicked out of the planet gang, it’s decided to form a rival solar system,” said Dean Burnett, a neuroscientist and stand-up comic in Britain. “Good on Pluto, I say.”
I love a good yogurt dressing on most things
We had a really good buttermilk lemon chess pie in Brooklyn a few months back

Nigella Lawson and Anthony Bourdain are hosting a cooking show… should be… interesting?
