Weekly Random Bites

Some eating and cooking from the past week..............

My friend Noel made a great appetizer for a dinner party of smoked salmon canapes, but instead of the usual cream cheese mixture, he made a smoked trout mousse to top them off.
They were mighty good.


A little nostalgia. I have been eating at my mother in law's kitchen table for 22 years and have always noticed she grates her own fresh Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and stores it in this little old Buitoni glass jar with holes at the top for shaking out the cheese. It's always been there and is a great conversation piece! She protects the holes with a small piece of wax paper.


We tried a new bakery in Peapack, NJ called Cocoluxe, which was really special. Thank God it's not close to my house, or I would be there everyday for their soup specials, croissant muffins and chocolate mice!


In search of lost pounds, I made a healthy lunch of tuna with fresh dill on Boston lettuce leaves with garlic and dill pickled carrots.

Mmmm, smoked salmon. My fav breakfast is everything bagel, cream cheese, lox, capers, red onion and tomato. I'm wondering how can I low fat that. I want one of those mice, too!

Your mother in law reminds me of my grandmother ;o)

I like your random bites series. The chocolate mouse is right up my alley. I want to make it at home! How about a chocolate platypus? I like a challenge.
