fig and cheese won ton tarts:

spray muffin tin with baking spray. press wonton skins into it. preheat oven to 375 degrees.

cut stems off figs and halve them. saute in butter with cinnamon and a little salt and pepper until warm and cooked and oozy.

i think it would be best also to add sugar and lemon, but i haven’t tried this.

crumble a little blue cheese (i think i bought maytag) into the bottom of each little cup, then cover in figs.

bake in the oven for about 10 minutes, until the won ton skins are crispy.

no figs or calf’s liver, but this last week i tried this, after intense overtime i went to the safeway near jason’s house at pleasant hill and after waiting in line forever at 11:45 pm behind a lady trying to buy her food with $62 in food stamps and $10 in cash, then went home and started cooking:

chop shallots, saute in olive oil, add chicken livers, sliced portobello mushrooms, and various and sundry herbs and seasonings (salt, pepper, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg, sherry, soy sauce, maybe some others?) and finally blackberries mashed through a sieve with a spoon.

it was ok, nothing exceptional.

a few days later (yesterday, sunday) the leftovers turned into a black sludge like crude oil, but chunkier. more like dinosaurs and swamp vegetation not quite rotted all the way yet. or like a peat bog. i chopped the leftovers and threw them in a pan with some chopped garlic, dried basil, and canned tomatoes, then poured the sauce over fresh garlic herb fettucine from safeway. delicious, and closer to brown than to black in the end!

other food this week:

many apple pears, red bartlett pears, white nectarines;

dannon light yogurt;

spinach pizza at jupiter’s and a hefeweizen with lemon;

strawberries and nectarines with whipped cream at casey’s;
