At the end of the week I travelled to Los Angeles to visit my daughter. She had surgery on an ovary on Friday (all went well), and I stayed this weekend to take care of her. My small stone for Friday is of a personal nature because it took place at the medical center. But yesterday I shopped and cooked for her, and my small stone turned out to take place during the cooking.
She owns a cookbook by Giada De Laurentiis called Everyday Pasta. I made Rotini with Salmon and Roasted Garlic for dinner. I added steamed asparagus cut into two-inch pieces. It didn’t last long and was the first real food my daughter could eat.
After dinner I made Baked Penne with Roasted Vegetables (see photo above), and it was also a big hit.
Here is my small stone:
Inside the onion are circles inside circles. Halving the zucchini, I notice the small seeds which lie dormant. The mushroom caps plump like ovaries. Even the peas are small spheres into themselves.
After the penne dish, I made devilled eggs.
