Good morning ModernDomestic readers. Can I just say that it feel really good to be back here? Because it does. Blogging has turned out to be as soothing to the soul as Busy Day Cake.
Recipes I want to try:
- Pesto from the Arugula Files. I would serve it on roast pork or chicken – a nice change from pesto on pasta, especially for those of us with wheat sensitivities.
- Freezer jam from The Bitten Word. What a brilliant way to use excess fruit!
- Strawberry panna cotta, from the New York Times.
And in non-recipe-related news:
- Gradually Greener wonders if the Real World DC cast will make use of the fresh herbs growing outside their house. I certainly hope so!
- DC Foodies has a preview of the new documentary Food Inc, which criticizes the industrial food production complex. I am totally excited about this movie, and am planning on going this weekend with Nonna and some ladies.
- Given my three week break from all things Internet, I didn’t find out until this week that Lemmonex is on a hiatus as well. Sad. She came back with a post this week, but who knows when the full break will be over.
- I really enjoyed the Tipsy Baker’s post about the ethics and economics of fish buying. Thank God someone else is saying it – a lot of us can’t afford to buy the “sustainable” salmon for $25/pound. No matter how much better it is for the earth.
- Capital Spice looks inside the new Eastern Market, which is set to reopen next weekend.
