Casona 2

Yup, same restaurant twice in one week. Who cares? I love restaurants. This was shrimp enchilado and it was amazing. So spicy my nose ran!

Moules et frites

Unlike me, the people at Iron Hill know how to rinse a mollusk properly.


This was so, so good. Honestly, I can’t remember ever having had a bad meal at the Iron Hill restaurants. Sorcery! (Now if only I hadn’t embarrassed myself by forgetting that my date spoke French and ‘splaining what “moules” was.)

This weekend I went back to Casona for the first time in a while. I remembered from my birthday last year that their veggie options were just all right, so I went with the tuna.

The tuna part itself was good but nothing super memorable – what made it so good was all the stuff around it. See those things that look like carrot shavings? Nope. Crispy sweet potato strings.

Now the funny thing is, I say that was my first time back there in a while. It’s also my first time there this week. How random!

Sad face (but yum)

Next week will be the last Collingswood farm market of the year! I’ll miss it. Today for lunch Tortilla Press had these unusual quesadillas: pumpkin, black beans and goat cheese. Unexpectedly sweet; reliably tasty.

Unusual toppings

It’s not the much-missed pumpkin pizza from Rome, but this butternut squash version was pretty tasty. (Normally they make it with sausage; I skipped that part.)


Hopefully it’ll taste good cold if this hurricane knocks power out. East coasters take care!

Forbidden love

I have cut significantly back on pasta, especially the semolina kind (in the interest of avoiding the diabeetus). However, I still love the crap out of it and after seeing this am almost certain I will be caving and making some for my dinner tonight.
