1 tbsp shallots
1/4 cup white wine
8 tbsp unsalted, cold butter
salt (to taste)
white pepper (to taste)
lemon juice (to finish)

First mince the shallots. Place a small saucepan over medium heat and add the shallots and the wine. Reduce the liquid by about two-thirds until it reaches a syrupy consistency.
Turn the heat to the lowest setting and whisk in the cold butter one piece at a time to slowly form the emulsion.
Once all of the butter has been incorporated, season with salt and pepper. You may want to add a few drops of lemon juice to brighten the flavor of the sauce.

It's a lovely sauce to accompany fish.

Two of my list of favorites... cheese and onions (I would have thrown mushrooms on there too! ). Your pizza looks really yummy! I could eat pizza everyday. If I had enough money, I'd open my own pizza place!

Since I got off work this morning at 7:00 I crashed for a bit and then was too lazy to cook much. I took some diced ham from the freezer, sauteed onions, celery and carrots till tender. Stirred in the ham and warmed it through. Took two cans of butter beans, drained and rinsed them, letting them drain well for a while. A third can of beans was placed in a bowl with a can of water and I mashed them adding it to the sauteed veggies and ham, salt and pepper, simmered until the oven was up to temp for box mix corn muffins with salsa added. When I put the muffins in the oven I added the drained beans to the soup pan. All told, a lovely bean and ham soup with cornbread muffins in about an hour. Now I'm ready to go to sleep again.

Thanks! A friend gave me the tomatoes this morning. I'm the only one in the house who likes them, but my daughter brought a friend over today and ate a couple, too. Also sent some green tomatoes home with them.
They are really fabulous with the bleu cheese r., and crab, with a balsamic reduction...

Thank you for sharing your pictures! They look very tasty! I haven't seen green tomatoes around here. I'm sure there are plenty of places, closer to Seattle, that would have them.
