Most of November when at home, I was cooking only basics. I'm working on getting some new spices, so maybe I'll have more to say next month!
|One new appliance purchased early in November: a popcorn popper.|
We had one in the past but it kind of fell apart. Interesting discovery:
if you spray a little water on the hot popcorn the salt sticks to it better.
|Winter fruit and "gold" coins waiting for Chanukah, which starts on Sunday!|
|Refrigerator decor: post cards from our visit to Alert Bay, B.C. in October. The 2 new magnets from the Centre Pompidou|
in Paris: an image of the ultramodern building, and a Chagall image. The magnetic clips are new too.
|Magnet close-up. The Chagall wasn't on view, but we love it so I got the magnet.|
The painting of a bride & groom was meaningful because our wedding
was in France at the time when a postage stamp with the image was current.
|The Chagall was one of a beautiful series of|
stamps with works of art from major French museums.
We sent many letters home with this stamp!
|"The Kitchen Table" by André Derain (1925). In the Museée de l'Orangerie. A kitchen in Paris!|
|All things considered -- it's fun to eat every meal out for a week.|
Especially in Paris!
|Last -- a boring photo of my new non-stick frying pans, replacing the|
semi-worn-out former ones. We also have some new dish brushes,
even more boring!
