Antipasti – It’s What’s For Dinner
Tonight’s the last session of my second pottery class at BCAE, and Kim has asked us to make a potluck supper of it. Since it’s lunchtime, I’m hungry, and I want to amuse myself, I thought I’d share what I brought:

  • ginger-marinated garbanzo beans;
  • green beans roasted with vidalia onions and garlic and drizzled with balsamic vinegar;
  • cooked-until-just-soft bell peppers in a red-wine vinagrette;
  • gorgonzola cheese with crusty bread; and (because I could)
  • a loaf of banana bread.

I’m a firm believer in the principle of leisure with dignity, and I hadn’t dusted off Molly Katzen’s, A Moosewood Cookbook in a while.


I'll be working on finishing up some pieces as well (with any luck, I'll have bisqueware to glaze tonight) and deciding on whether I'll stay with this studio for a while longer or throw my hat into the larger ring at the Mudflat. Both have things to recommend them right now, so it will be an interesting decision making for me. Wish me luck.

Good luck!

And tell me SOMEONE is bringing burgers or steak or something. Don't tell me you're going all veggie now!

Re: Good luck!

The trouble is, short of firing it in one of the kilns or barging in on one of the cooking classes, there's no way to heat the food. My choices were based on things that are good cold or at room temperature and won't suffer much for being out for a couple of hours.

Re: Good luck!

Sensible. Be warned then, someone is going to bring gazpacho.

Personally I'd fire up the kilns for some pizza!

Re: Good luck!

I think the shop tech would take issue with that, but there are more of us than her. I wonder, though, how long you'd cook a pizza for at 1300oC?

Re: Good luck!

I'm no good with math. I'd probably buy some Elio's Pizza (if you're cooking pizza in a kiln why not be as lame as possible?) and heat it up. Just take it out when the cheese is all golden and bubbly!

keep talkin' culinary smack like that and you'll have uninvited guests on your door within the 6:15-7:30 dinner hour with a chilled sixpack of Warsteiner under one arm and a some bootleg Ranma VHS tapes under the other...

*laughs*

And you think that I'd complain? ^_^

Oh, I love those! I never seem to have the time to make them myself.

Gorgonzola and crusty bread sounds wonderful, too. (Especially as I get ready to eat yet another dinner of IGA macaroni and cheese...)

You can't get much simpler than clean/bake/toss.
