Hope you had a beautiful birthday, and I want to hear more about Jahnavi's "interesting" menu.
Yesterday was "Pumpkin Fest" at my house. Junior has been dying to eat pumpkin, so he made 4 pumpkin dishes:
Pumpkin Bisque (amazing, slightly sweet from apple cider and maple syrup, lots of ginger, shallots)
Pumpkin Risotto (probably my favorite. A creamy risotto with big chunks of freshly cooked pumpkin)
Pumpkin Salad (blanched spinach, sauteed bermuda onions and chunks of pumpkin, and fakin' bacon crumbled over. Really good.)
Pumpkin Ravioli(he even made the pasta w/o a pasta maker. The sauce on this was really interesting, kind of a pesto made w/ pumpkin seeds instead of pine-nuts.)
It was pumpkin-rific! No pumpkin pie though. :-)
When does school end for you, so I can book some Jefftytime? (Jefftytime is a lot like Hammertime, but w/o the crazy pants.) Work has been Stankville, not enough to do at the beginning of the year, and then as of Sept. 1st everything is supposed to be done before the end of the year. Oh well...better late then never I suppose.
