monday musings

I can’t help myself. I love latte art.

I’m thinking about doing a series “cooking through the decades”. Each week I would cook  and share 2-3 recipes from each decade starting 100 years ago.  I think it would be so fun! I’ve already been doing my research with articles like this one and this one.  Do you have any ideas for me? What dish comes to mind when you think of the 40’s, 60’s, 2000’s?

Cookbooks among celebrity non-chef’s are so popular. Have you tried any? These are a few that look good to me: Cravings, (here is a good review on itThe Seasoned Life, Audrey At Home and here is a long list of celebrity cookbooks. Pippa Middleton? Freddie Prince Jr? Kris Jenner? Ok!

I heard a piece on the radio today about bringing back fresh cooking in schools.  When is the last time this was common practice? I know at the school I teach, the actual nutrition is much better than it was 10 years ago, but the main dishes are still majority pre-packaged and heated up.  I will say that there are always fresh fruits and veggies instead of canned. There are so many good cooks out there, I know many school food service people would be happy to actually use their real skills to cook again in the school.  Like this woman!

On that note, I leave you with a lovely picture of some chives I snapped as I was leaving my doctor’s office last week. It makes me wonder and hope that perhaps employees get to go out and snip some fresh chives for their meals?
