The Food You Crave.

On this rainy yet very peaceful Saturday, we are enjoying some much needed time off. We are starting our early afternoon with the a nice glass of Vin Hunter Semillon (from our beloved Heinen's) while we prepare our lunch and watch a favorite movie from our past, The Virgin Suicides. Kelly was remarking to me that she wonders whether Sofia Coppola wanted Kirsten Dunst instead of Scarlett Johanson for Lost In Translation because they have a better relationship. Kelly also brought up a good point that Evan Rachel Wood could easily have played Kirsten Dunst's role in Virgin Suicides had she been that age.

For our delicious lunch we are making two recipes from Ellie Krieger's fabulous cookbook, The Food You Crave:

Portobello Panini with Gorgonzola and Sun-Dried Tomatoes
Snow Pea, Scallion, and Radish Salad
A few Saturday's ago we just so happened to stumble upon her show on the Food Network, Healthy Appetite, and have become huge fans ever since. We have already made her lovely Radiance Fruit Salad a few times and if you would like to do the same, [click here] for the recipe.

A couple tunes, in the spirit of portobello mushrooms?
