What’s For Dinner at Chez Scalzi

Two different kinds of bruschetta, one the traditional sort with tomatoes, the second with wild mushrooms. Here, the chef shows off her plating skills. Not too bad. The food was mighty tasty as well. Inasmuch as I can scorch boiling water, Athena’s aptitude with food no doubt comes down from her mother’s side. This works for me.

  1. LOVE the purple chef’s hat…wish we could have worn those in culinary school instead of the plain white commis caps :)

  2. That HAT. I am dying.

    Also, wild mushroom bruschetta sounds amazing. I may have to try it myself, although my cooking skills are nowhere near the level of the Purple Hat.

  3. After the previous post I was afraid you had Bunny for diner, easier to eat it than to name it.

  4. I was still thinking about what to name the bunny when I went to this post, and for two seconds I thought: “…. not the bunny!!”

  5. I just hope the “wild” mushrooms aren’t the poisonous kind…

    But seriously, that does sound yummy. I’m trying to re-hone my cooking skills, which have gone dormant for far too long because hubby and I happen to have rather different tastes (no pun intended) when it comes to food. I was single for a decade before we married, so I got used to cooking stuff I obviously liked, and when hubby came into the picture he was like “Umm…not so much.” He likes the fact I can cook things which don’t require a box or a can, he just wishes our ideas of what’s good to eat coincided more often (as do I, since his idea of “cooking” is to throw some frozen chicken tenders in the oven).

  6. gorramit, my mouth is watering. and the thing driving absolutly crazy?

    I dont even know what bruschetta *is*!!!

  7. It’s a movie about a guy who goes to a small coastal town in Scotland to try to buy the land for a big American oil company, but he is so charmed by the town and the inhabitants that he doesn’t want to change it. While driving to the town, he and his traveling companion, a nerdy Scot, pick up a rabbit they find along the side of the road. The fate of the rabbit is … a little unsettling and part of the culture shock the American guy finds there. You might not want to watch it any time soon, what with your new bunny and all, but it’s actually a pretty cool movie. There’s a mermaid too–a Scottish one–and an insane American boss who ends up coming over to Scotland too.

    I didn’t think you ate your bunny, BTW.
