Cooking with Tango-Mango

Oh, beautiful food. I met Sue, author of the Tango Mango blog, through our mutual friend Mimi earlier this year. Her photography and recipes are outstanding.

Last week, Mimi and I went to Sue’s house to make stonefruit galettes. Her camera pictures are way more beautiful than my iPhone pictures, but you get the idea.

Sue made the short crust ahead of time, so our task was to roll it out, prep the fruit, and form the galettes. (Recipe is on the Tango Mango blog.)

I love how these look, even before baking. (Hey, Sue, we forgot to dot with butter! It was delicious, anyway.)

While they were baking, we had this pretty and tasty salad. The cucumber is shaved with a “vegetable sharpener” which looks like a giant pencil sharpener. Fun tools!

This was not the first cooking party we’ve had with Sue. Last June, we made enchiladas, a new dish for me.

Here’s Sue, finding the best light for photo styling…

Check out the Tango Mango blog. Pretty and delicious!

What’s new on the knitting front? I’m almost done with a new shawlette design, wondering if it’s going to block out the way I want it to. I guess I’ll find out soon…
