Bon Appétit

Apr 29, 2010

Dinnertime in South Pasadena is not much different than in the rest of the world. Oh, we have our fair share of fine dining — it’s grand to indulge in Bistro de la Gare‘s Entrecote Flambee Au Cognac washed down with a glass of Châteauneuf-Du-Pape, or Mike and Anne’s pork chops with lingonberry sauce or Firefly‘s Duck Paprikash. More likely, though, you’ll throw together supper at home after a commute, after homework, after work and chores and shopping. As spring stretches the daylight hours, perhaps you’ll fire up the barbecue. The divine scent of my neighbors’ mesquite-grilled chicken often floats over to my place. With open windows, we share sounds of clanging pans and chopping onions.

“I want grilled cheese!” I hear the 8 year old neighbor boy’s voice.

“I want mac and cheese!” Says his 6 year old brother.

“You’ll have spaghetti and like it!” Says their dad.

So…what are you having for dinner tonight?
