I called Laura and Dimitri to see if they'd like to join me, and catch up on the last "West Wing" they'd missed. Laura was off to an advent thingy, but Dimitri asked if I wanted to combine my grilled cheese plans with his soup and crab cakes plan. Sounded good to me!
Dimitri cooked some homemade soup that was amazingly simple, and very tasty. It was potato soup with onions and celery, all blended up, with some shredded gruyère added. He also had a couple of supermarket crab cakes. He dipped them in a beaten egg that I'd brought over at his request, and coated them with bread crumbs, before frying. He also had some squash that was very tasty.
Last on the menu was my grilled cheese sandwiches, made on wheat bread with American cheese left over from my burger party, using olive oil instead of butter.
