In the Kitchen with H

Awhile back, H requested we make Ratatouille's Ratatouille, and I actually found a great recipe for it. He's been asking for it again, so I thought a long weekend at home would be the perfect time to make it. (It doesn't take long to make, but cooks for an hour. Plus, the farmer's markets are bursting at the seams with the necessary supplies -- zucchini, yellow squash, eggplant and red pepper.) Our friend Jim, and his friend Bari who we met for the first time, stopped by for drinks, and ended up staying for H's ratatouille. It was a really nice surprise, and the ratatouille was a hit!

Our Labor Day weekend was filled with friends and food. It was perfect. Sunday night was an Asian-inspired potluck at the Elsmo's, which you can read about here, and here. My contribution was a salad and a dessert -- I made a clafouti (recipe courtesy of Joanna), or actually flognarde since I used peaches, plums and apricots (again ... you've got to love the farmer's markets) instead of the traditional cherries.

It's hard to believe summer is coming to an end.
