the cooking blues.
homemade gnocchi: potatoes, salt, flour
pinched and ready for the pot of hot water
brown butter, white wine, and kale and mushroom sauce
really good white wine, popovers, and salad
the finished gnocchi!
it’s been a while.. i do admit that. this past week got the best of me, not because i was busy, i just got distracted half the time. i also had a case of the cooking blues which took up more time of each night than originally predicted. pictured below are some of the many items i’ve prepared this past week!
oh hi fresh veggies- i love you kale and celery.
chicken kale soup, with crispy rosemary parmesean bread
red plum and black berry butter tart!
base of soup
as you can see… i wasn’t lying about my cooking escapades. i know that i have been promising my story entitled her and him for quite sometime, maybe even three weeks, but the ending has been really difficult to decide upon. i’ve even considered publishing it in installments. perhaps that’s what i’ll do. i will be blogging regularly as of now. today its pretty cool outside, although the sun makes it rather deceiving. i’d love to go for a bikeride and maybe even a picnic, but seeing as the time and temp building reads 38 degrees, i don’t think i’ll do either. maybe a trip to go thrifting, even though i should be saving all my cash for my trip to quebec in the next couple of weeks. monday marks the start of the 2010 tennis season. i don’t really feel like playing but i know that i should, so that’s what i’ll do. i have a lot of work to do with buy local and with port city music hall, so i think tennis will be on the back-burner until matches start. i’m also hoping to vacation to cambridge/boston next weekend. it’d be oh so lovely. i’m really hungry right now, and trout is sitting with me. this spring has been alright so far. seeing as the weather’s been nice…but i forgot to tell you! thursday it snowed. isn’t that terrible? by the end of the weekend i’m hoping her and him will be posted, along with whatever sunday scribblings posts as their 208th topic.
give me some ideas for how to spend my weekend. i guess i could go take photos.
