Sunny Seattle Wintery Weather!

Seattle has been in the 30s and 40s in the last two weeks. Mr. F has started making more hearty dishes like several variations of roasted chicken,image duck for the first time, and lots of amazing soups.imageOne of our favorite fall salads has roasted beets with image goat cheese or ricotta. imageIt goes well with everything too.

Earlier this week, Mr. F made a miso, radish, spinach soup with poached eggs, andimageon Friday, a Moroccan, harissa, cabbage, tomato and egg soup.image It was the perfect amount of spice balanced with cumin and ginger. Mr. F makes it look so easy too! You may be able to tell that we love poached eggs and Mr. F also makes an amazing salad with chorizo and parmesan!imageThey’re so fluffy!!!


This weekend we enjoyed the sunny and cold weather with walks along the Everett Marina docks, image image walking around our neighborhood, image and surprisingly we saw a lot of ice! image

Tonight, Mr. F made another winning dinnerimagewith lamb, cabbage, celery, olives, preserved lemons, carrots, onions, turmeric, cumin, cinnamon, salt and pepper, beef stock, sweet vermouth, harissa, garlic, parsley, mint, and a new discovery, bread cheese.imageIt went wonderfully with Two Vintners Syrah!



I’m so glad my husband is an amazing cook because I burn water. Last weekend, I accidentally made a raw Angel Food cake for a family dinner but fortunately, he saved it and made it into bread pudding. Phew! My grandparents, uncle and parents loved it, of course!
