Last night, vegetable beef soup and cornbread.

Had planned to make socca, but the chickpea flour was soured. Had an odor almost like rancid meat. Ive never seen that before, and didn't know it would go bad that way.

Socca, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Chicken noodle soup on the side.

Chickpea flour is no longer available in my part of SE Texas, so tonight I made my own by grinding dry chickpeas in a coffee grinder. Worked out very well.

Tonight my bride and a girlfriend are going to the philharmonic's Christmas concert. With our trip to Vail planned, dinner out is too much of an expense right now so I'm making pizza---Goat Cheese, Bacon, Fig, Arugula, Serrano chilies & caramelized onions.

I'll either get this right or I'll give 'em 5 bucks and send them to Subway

A young Catholic family (4 kids under 5 years old) invited us over for dinner. Dad is anxious to show off his home-made pizza dough recipe.

Indian food. My first experience. Rita and I shared buttered chicken and chicken tikka masala. Naan is the bomb.

Buttered chicken won by a landslide, but it may be in vain. My wife's tastes never left that North Texas farm. It may have been too big a step.

We shall see.
