I’m going to start teaching some cooking classes in the not-too-distant future (I have one arranged through Cancer Lifeline and my clinic’s medical director wants me to teach some at the clinic…he’s even talking about getting one of those tilted cooking demo mirrors), so I’ve been poring through my paper stash of recipes and trolling the food blogs looking for ideas of what dishes I might prepare. So many choices!

That last recipe looks especially good today…Seattle has had an especially lovely fall, but yesterday it turned cold just like [finger snap].

Bon appétit!
