I became curious this morning about Optima, and was quite pleased to see it is a Hermann Zapf font, derived from Roman period engravings. Then I read the opinions of John McCain's use of the font in his campaign -- http://campaignstops.blogs.nytimes.com/tag/optima-typeface/?_r=0 . Well, i like what i like and so it goes.

I did some "holiday" cooking yesterday. Friday was art preparation (artist's statement, framing, pricing notes) and Thursday was a blur. In the morning i fixed a gluten free, biscuit-recipe inspired "pastry" filled with the aging almond filling from the back of the cabinet. As i patted the last bit down i realized that this time i'd forgotten the salt.
In the evening i baked a stuffed squash (a kuri kabocha, i think), which turned out quite well. I think zapping the squash while the oven preheated and i sautéed the onions was part of the success.
