i have found my newest and only muse at this time. unfortunately, jaime oliver is married with kids, but i still find him to be so terribly cute! the way he cooks outside on an open fire, how he cans and pickles and makes his own ketchup- oh he’s just so fantastic. maybe someday, when i’m pursuing my passion, i’ll meet someone with similarities to jaime, and then, if fate permits it, we’d get along famously.
i’m planning on doing a lot of cooking this week, so look out Vin et Grub, recipes galore tba asap. i survived standardized testing today, actually, i’m quite confident. i made some progress on b108, and i cleaned the kitchen and reorganized all the cabinets. i also took a trip to the market, and picked up some food for the upcoming week. i’m rarely excited enough to talk about what i will be cooking- but i think i’m elated tonight, so i may as well share. tomorrow evening’s menu: seared mahi mahi wrapped in a thin layer of russet potato with brown butter and sage sauce. monday evening: roasted stuffed tomatoes, with artichokes, chevre, and panko, served with a watercress and black cherry salad. tuesday evening: roasted chicken, basted in champagne vinegar and aged balsamic, with tarragon, three-variety mashed potatoes, stuffing, and brownies. wednesday evening: fagiolini in umido, and fried chicken. thursday evening: tandoori tofu, and basmati rice. friday evening: a trip to local, or perhaps figa/new miyake. so excited for my week in food. in addition, it’s obvious that i’ll be swamped in homework, and also, i’ll be baking a black plum raspberry pear pie tomorrow night. it’ll be more like a free form tartette, but it should be wonderful nonetheless. i’m headed to sonny’s tonight to visit with some folks, and party just a little bit. tomorrow: so much homework, so much baking, coffee, and lots of sleep, plus a brunch date. VERY EXCITED FOR MONDAY NIGHT @ SPACE. DARKDARKDARK= BRIGHTBRIGHTBRIGHT.
