random list

Dinner tonight.

* Rosemary croccantini
* Cambozola blue cheese
* Stonewall Kitchen roasted garlic onion jam
* Clementines
* Israeli couscous in cranberry ginger glaze
* Organic 3-year old extra sharp Canadian cheddar
* Green grapes
* Sweet onion crackers
* Forest mushroom pesto
* Maplebrook cherrywood smoked mozzarella
* Thai beef salad with sesame dressing
* Organic raspberries

A single bag from the grocery store where I never shop (except the onion jam, which was already in my fridge). A week's worth of grocery budget (which is why I never shop there), though there will certainly be leftovers. Beverages to be determined. A nice pinot noir might be good. Now if only I had a corkscrew and wine glass. And a dining room table.
