Oops! as an exclamation is appropriate for the fact that it has been over a month since my last post.  However, I’m also increasingly aware that it is an acronym that represents almost everything I cook (with the exception of fruit smoothies for breakfast):

O =  olive, o = oil, P = pepper, and S = salt

In fact, I have just made a shortcut for my keyboard typing:  ” oops” converts this text for recipes, emails, whatever, to — “olive oil, salt, and pepper”.

Anyway, January is almost over, and so is my first course this Spring.  In the meantime I’ve been cooking and eating without sharing with my loyal fans.  Here are some of the month’s highlights, starting with the latest meal.

Spaghetti with Wild Mushrooms and Caramelized Cherry Tomatoes

This dish was today’s lunch.  I had some wild mushrooms in a paper bag in the refrigerator.  They were there long enough to be almost dried — but not quite.  Here is the recipe, along with photos in the process.

  2. Wow, I never knew you could make short-cuts for your keyboard! – You learn something new every day! (the food also looks great by the way).

      Thank you for your comment and for reading my blog. I use an app on my Mac called TextExpander, which makes it easy to use short phrases to insert text you frequently repeat.
