I made a pot of Musgo Minestrone today!

It is sort of a family tradition to clean out the fridg and eat scrappy in the days leading up to a holiday. It was the way my mother and grandmother balanced the budget. It also seemed to make us appreciate the holiday treats a little more. Old habits die hard!

Pinto beans with sliced sausage & cornbread. I gotta say, my cornbread was pretty rockin' today! For dessert - drumstick ice cream cone.

I was going to do a twist on this:

Steven and Chris | Arbequina Olive Bucatini

Subbing out whole wheat pasta for the pasta, no chicken, and regular spanish olives with a splash of smoke flavor to compensate.

But I got distracted making Kimichi. I think it was BuckyTom's link to Rock's post on this, but I couldn't find it again when I searched...I didn't have the radishes, nor the chili (I used some Thai red chili paste)....so far, it is really good.

I had to look up "Al Pastor". I see we both had meat roasted on a vertical spit.

We had Black Bean Quesadillas with sauteed garlic, red bell pepper, onion, etc. with melted extra sharp cheddar.

We had classic Quiche Lorraine along with two giant artichokes and dipping sauce of mayo, garlic powder and fresh lemon juice.
