In most cases, this blog will be fairly active but my husband arranged for a much needed vacation on very short notice. For the past week I have been using up things from the fridge and freezing what I can reasonably use up. The most creative I got was using a bechemel sauce with ground beef and broccoli to stuff puff pastry. We leave on Saturday. So far the fridge has been pared down to the basics that will survive the leave of absence, cheeses and miscellaneous that will go to one or more of my kids along. The miscellaneous includes any produce, eggs, lunchmeats, and leftovers. I cleaned out the cripser only moments after the garbage truck left so used the compost.

Well, we are off for a little over a week so check back. I promise some great recipes and kitchen chat.
