I often tease my husband that I am making a certain "color" of a dinner. I didn't know people do it on purpose. Ha... Of course this meal sounds much more interesting than what my white dinner would be. I won't tell you what it would consist of I wouldn'twant to ruin your dinner. ;)


Oh, my, I've got my eye on those blintzes. I've never tried to make them, but this tempts me. But this isn't a real white dinner. Years ago I was in Norway and was served fish balls and potatoes in white cream sauce; now that's a white meal!

How could one resist pumpkin seeds with Death's Door Gin? The poetry alone seduces. I am a fan of layers of white given our recent trip to Sweden...not just food and landscape, but in the paintings of world-renowned artist, Anders Zorn. Because no time to comment on individual posts, a general Big Thanks for such wide-ranging posts! I am a super fan of all your writing and Mark's photos and believe that your non-gardening posts make me better appreciate the others.


Lisa and Altoon — I think it is the norm for white meals to be bland and I know that is often the case with Norwegian food. I live in an area with a large Norwegian ancestry so I am familiar with this kind of food. A great Norwegian cookbook in a different vein is "A Kitchen of Light." Great photos and stories even if you never make a recipe.

Julie — Thanks for those kind words. You know the garden bloggers in Chicago all said you should specialize and blog about only one subject. But, with my generalized newspaper background and many interests, I could never limit myself. So it's always nice to know it's appreciated.
