A Little Kitchen Magic….

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.
