This blog is usually about our adventures with our kids, but today I am (strangely) inspired by what Stacie and I recently created in the kitchen, as she was teaching me how to make pie dough. We had a very “Nigel Slater” moment – though I really shouldn’t compare to him. He is a hugely talented cook and an epic writer, and well, we are just regular people. We opened the fridge – pulled out what we had and came up with this thing of beauty and great taste – a delicata squash tossed in pesto, caramelized onions with thyme, goat cheese and shavings of aged gouda galette. A little kitchen magic, in my humble opinion. And a smile I can’t seem to wipe off my face. Perfect day spent cooking with a good friend. There isn’t much better.
And yeah, pie dough isn’t that hard to make.
