Olives for Dinner
Rosemary Soysage, Spinach and Mushroom with Farfalle This is a huge bowl of YUM. I found this recipe on epicurious years ago and kept taking things out, adding things in and tweaking things here and there until this concoction appeared and acted like it owned the place. Soysage , walnuts and mushrooms give the dish a wonderful heartiness while the spinach gives the dish a beautiful splash of bright green throughout. Oil cured olives are a perfect salty addition to top off this dish. To de-pit them, just press the flat side of of a knife down on each of them until you feel the pit—then simply pull the olive away and you'll have two perfect halves to throw into the dish. About the spices in this dish: use fresh rosemary if you have it—dried will work, but fresh just elevates the dish to the next level.

Easy 'nuff. But since *that* hasn't panned out quite yet, I instead spent last Friday baking just a wee bit shy of three dozen VwaV chocolate chip cookies, and then nearly plowed my way through all of them. By myself. VwaV Chocolate Chip Cookies
