Since our son came home, [The Man I Love] and I have been the beneficiaries of his enthusiasm for cooking. Some of it was timing - we were both down with bad colds when he arrived, so he kindly fed us with delicious meals when, if we'd been on our own, we'd have been eating chicken noodle soup from cans.
But he's also just interested in cooking. He's been using fresh ingredients found at our local farmers' markets, which are inspiring to any creative cook. So when I get home from a long day at work, I find him in the kitchen, with the evening's menu planned and dinner on the stove.
Really, though, c'mon.....
Stuffed squash blossoms AGAIN?
Fried zucchini blossoms stuffed with herbed goat cheese, baby kale salad with walnuts and Asian pear.
I'm a lucky Mom.
