So, what did you make this weekend?
The weather here in Baltimore has been wet and cold. And packing to move means i'm home all day which has been giving me the urge to braise. So, sitting in the kitchen I have the remains of an oxtail stew and butternut squash soup with ginger. What did you make?
Had a pretty good culinary weekend... some highlights:
Yesterday was an unexpected dinner party at my place, so two pizzas: arugala, zucchini, and boursin on one; mango, smoked ham, avocado (raw), and mozzarella on the other.
Today, I woke up craving crab, and had a big bag of arugala in the fridge. So: bacon-wrapped crab cakes, over wilted arugala, blood oranges (raw), and croûtons from a leftover sourdough-herb-olive loaf. Yum.
Good luck packing, and enjoy the soup and stew!

I just realized that I had a Martha Stewart-ish weekend. On Saturday, I made her Meatloaf 101 for me and my kids since my husband was away and he hates meatloaf anyway. I really like this recipe, but for some reason, it didn't come out as good as usual.
Yesterday, I made this White Cheddar Corn Chowder for my kids to eat during the week. I have never made this before and it came out pretty good.
