Tuesday proved to be a record-breaking day with voter turnout, and downtown was no different. Sharon and I waited over an hour in line to cast our ballot. NYC still seems stuck in the 1970s, however, with old lever pull voting machines — no wonder the lines moved so slowly!
Back at home, the week was equally exciting with recipes (although Sophie seemed quite content on her chair). First was a mustard-crusted Salmon with roasted vegetables. The Keta Salmon we had previously was still fresh at Whole Foods, so we picked some more up — really tasty fish!
Next was Sharon’s delicious take on spaghetti — with Spaghetti Squash! This is one of our favorite hearty meals with tomatoes, steamed broccoli, carrots, sliced Mozzarella and grated Parmesan. The plate is also a beautiful mix of fall colors when finished:
We also had a homemade Austrian dish this week — Spätzle! Sharon hand-crafted the crazy dumpling-esque shapes of egg, flour, and milk. Combined in a simple broth with celery and potatoes, it was another fantastic fall meal!
