Jan. 5 - "Cremini Mushrooms"
My wife Lois, and I, took my 91 year-old-today-mom to lunch at a small bistro-like Italian place today, Casa Mia. I was going to sketch my lunch - the Spinach-Cream Ravioli was mouth-wateringly good - but - breaking my mantra for everytime I leave the house, "Never leave home without your sketchbook," I left the house without my sketchbook.
So, after taking mom back to her place and visiting for a while (she's 91 going on 72, btw), we headed for the grocery store to pick up supplies. While there I was trying to remember the ingredients for a stew I saw online, but had few clues. We live in such a wonderful age, I opened my smartphone and went to the site where I found the ingredient list. We got what we need to make the stew, so we're happy now.
And we'll let you know how the stew turns out.
