Kale, castelvetrano and pistachio purée (and croquettes) Kale, castelvetrano and pistachio purée (and croquettes) By Out of the Ordinary 10/18/14 22:34 Back in the summertime, I could, and probably did, start every post with, “Malcolm and I went for a walk after dinner.” We haven’t gone for too many walks lately.

Eggplant and sweet potato tart with pistachios and pine nuts Eggplant and sweet potato tart with pistachios and pine nuts By Out of the Ordinary 10/12/14 18:54 Last night I had trouble sleeping, as I often do, and I started thinking about thoughts.

Golden split pea and tomato soup Golden split pea and tomato soup By Out of the Ordinary 09/26/14 19:57 Isaac ends his sentences with an ascension. His voice travels upwards at the end of each thought. Sometimes it trails upwards in a lengthy and leisurely fashion. Sometimes, when he’s indignant, it rises sharply to unhearable heights. It sounds like … Continue...

I like it a lot, but I still feel like I’m just getting used to it.

Tarragon ice cream Tarragon ice cream By Out of the Ordinary 09/18/14 19:38 Many ages and ages ago, I told you that David and I are going to try to watch as many movies from 1967 as we can find. And I promised I’d tell you all about them. Well, we’re making a … Continue reading →
Eggplant croquettes Eggplant croquettes By Out of the Ordinary 09/13/14 20:58 If you’re familiar with The Ordinary at all, you’ll know we’re big fans of Square America, an online collection of found photos: the kind you see in yard sales and flea markets, the kind that make you a little sad, … Continue reading →
Almond tarragon cookies Almond tarragon cookies By Out of the Ordinary 09/06/14 21:04 It’s been such a strange week, with Malcolm starting middle school and summer coming to a close and me sort of starting a new job. I’ll tell you what I keep thinking about, the image that keeps playing over and … Continue reading →
Pesto, lentil and tomato tart Pesto, lentil and tomato tart By Out of the Ordinary 08/31/14 18:07 This is the 900th post to come at you from The Ordinary. Nine hundred recipes and songs, 900 confused and meaningless meandering rambling essays. It’s crazy, I tell you. Crazy. It’s a crazy amount of words. The other night, whilst … Continue reading →
Cherry, white peach, chocolate and frangipane tart Cherry, white peach, chocolate and frangipane tart By Out of the Ordinary 08/29/14 22:09 Last night Clio and I went for a walk after dinner, as we almost always do. It wasn’t even close to 8 o’clock yet, but it was getting dark. There was a chill in the air, but we could feel … Continue reading →
Charred eggplant, pistachio and pine nut dip Charred eggplant, pistachio and pine nut dip By Out of the Ordinary 08/20/14 21:13 Yesterday after dinner Malcolm and I went for a walk on the other side of the canal. The last time we’d gone that way, we’d lost Clio. It had only been for a few minutes, but long enough that I … Continue reading →
Yellow squash and white bean empanadas Yellow squash and white bean empanadas By Out of the Ordinary 08/19/14 22:12 There’s a vine that grows outside our front door and along the back fence of our garden. It’s called wild clematis, or devil’s darning needles or old man’s beard. It has beautiful little white flowers, and the most intoxicating fragrance, … Continue reading...
Ratatouille-style ratatouille (With potatoes and roasted beets) Ratatouille-style ratatouille (With potatoes and roasted beets) By Out of the Ordinary 08/17/14 20:44 We’ve decided to watch every movie made in 1967. It is for fun! We chose 1967 at random, after watching La Chinoise a week or so ago. We’re obviously not going to watch every movie made that year, but we’re … Continue reading →
Almond cake with blueberry & chocolate filling Almond cake with blueberry & chocolate filling By Out of the Ordinary 08/14/14 20:01 We went to look for eagle feathers though we knew we wouldn’t find any. As with most things in life, it was more about the journey–the walk on the towpath, over the old train bridge, down the hill through the … Continue reading →
Fresh  mint sorbet Fresh mint sorbet By Out of the Ordinary 08/13/14 20:49 Well, I have two boys. They’re different in many ways, but they’re alike in this.

She … Continue reading →
Zucchini and cornmeal croquettes Zucchini and cornmeal croquettes By Out of the Ordinary 08/07/14 20:45 Malcolm and I have an ongoing joke. He’ll show me something–a picture he’s drawn, something he’s made out of legos, a frog, a handful of sweet ferns. And I’ll cry, “look at your fingernails!” Yeah. Actually Malcolm doesn’t think it’s … Continue reading...

I brought a novel to read and a notebook so that I could start writing a novel. And guess what I did instead? I read a field … Continue reading →
Pistachio-almond-cherry-chocolate cookies Pistachio-almond-cherry-chocolate cookies By Out of the Ordinary 07/30/14 21:35 Here at The Ordinary, we get a lot of spam comments. Several a day. I confess I feel almost sorry for the spammers, because we’re such a small concern, here in our little Ordinary world. I want to tell them … Continue reading →
