Boeuf Bourguignon

The photos wouldn’t upload. I came back to it yesterday. And…. the whole thing went KABLUEY. The site crashed. I was booted out of WordPress. What did I do? Well, moderately calm. Weeelllll… maybe calm isn’t really the right word. I shook my laptop, threw my head down on the keyboard, and wailed in a pitch that probably left my dogs eardrums vibrating for an hour. I lost a few drafts, but at least it’s mostly fixed and everything is okay again in the world. (The server was full. Moving onwards and upwards.

Rustic Potato Pizza. Potato pizza has a special place in my heart.

Rustic Potato Pizza

This simple rustic pizza made with just a few basic ingredients (no tomato sauce) is pretty impossible to find in Swedish restaurants. So the only time we eat it is when we make it ourselves, and it always makes me think of Rome. There you can get it in almost every restaurant but they taste best bought from any of the many hole-in-the-wall ovens. They bake them incredibly looong and you buy a slice of it by showing with your hands how big piece you want. Normally they are baked with lots of olive oil, wheat flour and parmesan cheese, we have made a little healthier version of this recipe from the lovely blog The Italian Dish, by using less olive oil, rye flour and goat cheese. We have a special reason for posting this right now.

Fall Recipe: Gluten-Free Pumpkin Pie With Coconut Crust

I can tell because most of our counter space is covered with ripening tomatoes and drying bean pods, and shoveling out enough space for a mixing bowl or a chopping block is nearly impossible. Despite these obstacles, or perhaps because of them, on the first Sunday of fall, I decided I wanted pumpkin pie. Luckily, I had roasted a pie squash the previous night. Though there are some fabulous tried-and-true varieties that I plant every year, I also like to try out new vegetables every year — I’ve found that in our extreme climate, it doesn’t pay to plant only a single variety of anything. So this year, as I have for the past 10 years, I planted ‘Uncle David’s Dakota Dessert Winter Squash’ (Fedco Seeds), which has proven an excellent producer of sweet, flavorful squash that keep well into the winter.

On Saturday I roasted a ‘Snack Face’ pumpkin, an ‘Eastern Rise’ squash, and all their seeds simultaneously. Grease two pie tins with butter. Mix in the order given.

Salted Chocolate-Peanut Butter Marshmallow Squares

I made an appointment to have my wedding dress altered. The tailor told me to bring the undergarments and shoes I’ll be wearing to the big day. I responsibly took note in my calendar to make sure I wouldn’t forget. The day I went for the alterations, I packed my new shoes, I packed my new undergarments, and I headed out the door, rather self-satisfied for having remembered these items.

Just one problem. Um, THE DRESS?! Yes, because the tailor didn’t explicitly mention the dress in her list of things to bring, I was thisclose to showing up at the dressing room with just my wedding underwear. That would have been a very difficult moment to recover from smoothly. “Could you take an inch off the butt cheeks please?
