I warmed up some french bread and broiled some brie. Served it with salsa and salami and roasted garlic. A favorite from this New Mexican restaurant Cafe Pasquals Dinner Menu

.........let's see, Surrey BC is how far? Laurie, would you mind posting that recipe somewhere in DC? I'd love to try it myself. Having made gnocchi myself many times, the problem is not making a tough dough. After watching the Top Chef allstars a few weeks ago, I saw that Sommelier Steven couldn't even do a tender gnocchi. I'm more than willing to attempt this effort as we love the stuff. Thanks in advance if it wouldn't be too much trouble.
I will be happy to post it. I am just going out to get groceries - have to rely on DH between working shifts as we are having an unnaturaly white Christmas season and even though I am from the prairies, I do not drive in the stuff here! Anyway the gnocchi turned out great and my "student" went home with a few of my cookbooks under her arm!

I will patiently wait for it to be posted. I'm in Calgary, just drive beyond the market and keep going till you get here
and listen, what cookbooks? do you have some? what kinds? what do they include? can you tell, I'm interested.

My parents and I had taco salad for dinner. I was not impressed with the quality of the ground beef, it was too fatty for me. The last time I went grocery shopping I made the mistake of buying the 15%, I normally buy the 7%.
