When In Doubt, Bake a Pie
I am amazed sometimes at how easy it used to be to write a daily blog. I would naturally have so much to share, so many things I’ve just read that I’m eager to share, or a comment someone made, or a place that I’m going. It’s harder now, maybe I just don’t think people are interested like I once did.
On this gray day in South Deerfield, with a slow day in the office, I am grasping for topics. I think the topic of food is in order.
I have a daily responsibility, every night I get to decide what we are having for dinner. This might seem like a good thing, but like the feeling when you’re up playing music and somebody has to think of what song to play, it doesn’t always come easy. I am glad that I have my NY Times Cooking section emails that keep me filled with good, tasty ideas.
Today I grabbed a recipe that I had printed out last week. Cabbage and Carmelized onion pie. I even remembered to buy a gluten-free pie crust at the store, so today, I carmelized the onions, cooked down the cabbage, and made a beautiful pie.
Now my only problem is that there are only two of us, and I hate the idea of throwing away any of this pretty pie.
