Greens, Greens, and Nothing But Greens*

This just sounds amazing right now. Especially since my daily dose of Dayquil just isn't cutting it.

Oh, Ms. Rossetto Kasper, how I love you so. Seriously. You're the best. Not since this recipe, introduced to me by a good friend who also knows her way around a butternut squash, have I loved the idea of vegetables gussied up and drool-worthy.

*If you know your Sondheim, you know from whence this post title cometh. Yep, showing my inner musical theatre dorkitude.


  1. Rosetto Casper is awesome. She has a great laugh. I want to be her best friend.

  2. Girl you know I love me some Into the Woods!!!

    Bernadette Peters kicks ass in that role :)

    I could sing the rest of that song you know ;-)

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters.
