    Dinner on Sunday was roasted chicken thighs. To go with it, for my husband, I roasted some potato chunks tossed in olive oil and sprinkled with Penzey's Mural of Flavor and re-heated some leftover peas and carrots. For me and my stepson, I tried a new recipe, from Smitten Kitchen, for Asparagus, Goat Cheese, and Lemon Pasta. (My husband is not an asparagus fan.) I made a couple of changes by deleting the lemon. I used 1/2 tsp. dried tarragon in place of 2 tsp. fresh, and I added 1/2 tsp. of dried shallots. I used a 4 oz. package of goat cheese that I had, rather than the 5 oz. the recipe specified. I think it needs a little more of something; perhaps I should have included the lemon zest and/or a bit of lemon juice, but that is not my idea of a hot pasta dish. It went well with the chicken, and I could see adding cooked chunks of chicken to make it a main dish.

    I made hummus on Monday to eat with the Gourmet Soda Crackers I baked last week. I used chickpeas that I had frozen, and I neglected to drain them, so the hummus is more like a dip than its usual chunky consistency. However, it is still good.

    I also made yogurt.

    Dinner tonight will be leftovers.

    We had a cooler day, with thunderstorms and some heavy rain in the afternoon, so Wednesday was a perfect day for beef stew
