Late-Summer Leftovers

There are a few things I’ve been meaning to tell you about. In the flurry of August travel (three wedding ceremonies in three days!) and gearing up for fall, my posts have been short and more about what’s on our plates than what’s in my mind.

First, there were mushrooms. I was invited (disclosure: and paid!) to enter this recipe/photo contest and you still have a few days to vote for me. It’s just a simple click, no registration required. The crazy buffalo-blue-cheese stuffed button mushrooms I made were kind of a risky experiment, but turned out delicious, bold and rich and zingy. They’d be perfect for a fall football party or a Halloween fete, especially since they’re sort of orange. Add your vote here by Friday! (Full recipe here.)

Second, there’s been wine. Not just sips and sips of  Sauvignon Blanc but also riesling and txakolina, paired with two delicious dishes for a late-summer dinner dinner party. You can read about them at the online wine journal Palate Press.

And third. The Big News. My last day at the publishing company I’ve worked for for the last six years is Friday. I’m moving out of design and on to a job I’ve been dreaming of for a long time now…more details to come.

In blue cheese, mushrooms
