My mom celebrated a landmark birthday this week and requested a quiet dinner at home. With Mike in Chicago, the full weight of eating well fell on my shoulders. My dad volunteered to ace the salmon as always. Late September is a bit tricky. Do you want to savor the lightness and color of summer or are you ready to dive into the coziness of fall? Meh. Split the difference.
