Eastside Road, Healdsburg, September 30, 2009—…ONE OF WHOM does not eat wheat products. Not a problem. I torched three pasillas and three hungarian long peppers, skinned them, and cooked them long, slow, in olive oil. I made a nice big batch of pesto.
Lindsey sliced some tomatoes from the garden and cooked pasta, one portion of it rice pasta. Green salad, of course; and then, for dessert,
Lindsey made a crisp with apples from the garden, substituting chopped almonds for the more usual wheat-based streusel. Excellent. I do love it when people come to dinner.
