Picture of the Week

Oh, look!! A picture for this week::

Sometimes food can sound like it has a negative self-image: steamed, poached, beaten, whipped, creamed, pulsed. But most of the time the words are actually delicious in a food context. I present: Steamed and poached. Both make for an excellent dinner. I loved this meal. I cooked it for just me, which is a miracle in and of itself. You see, usually when it’s just me for dinner, dinner looks like “Hm, cereal. No, tortilla chips. And hummus. Or just chocolate chips. No. Cereal. Okay. Now tortilla chips. And a carrot.” So snacky. This was a meal. And one I could be proud of.

That’s right. Picture! Picture of the week. Being snowed in lends itself to wonderful opportunities to celebrate. So, we at this house created a new holiday. Mark your calendars for next year, people. Join me for next year’s Chips & Salsa Day. Boy, was it a great one.

Picture of the Week

For days, I have been sick. Completely lame-o sick. In bed all day. Not necessarily asleep, but I enter a limbo world where I’m half asleepish and then I get up, slump around a bit and then find myself too tired to finish whatever task I started only to go right back to bed. Then, more often than naught, I wake myself up by coughing. And not just cou- cough, ‘scuse me! But body-wrenching, heart pounding coughing that reaches deep down to my ankles.

I have not been in the kitchen unless I’ve been putting water to boil for tea, heating up soup (yes, from a can), or retrieving more saltines.

Oh, what’s that?

Getting better requires many and varied ingredients. Luckily for me the BFCP knows all about the powers of the doughnut.

So, here you have it. I’ll get better; promise. I’ll make food again. I’ll speak again. My voice is getting stronger, until I talk.

M&Ms are like medicine.

What? M&Ms are like medicine, right??

Picture of the Week

So, we upgraded. We got a shiny new teapot, which is currently acting as the big brother to its predecessor until we take ol’ faithful into the office. I love seeing these teapots together, though. Do you? And which picture do you like the best? I suppose I should rename this entry “Pictures of the Week,” since I couldn’t make up my mind.

You can really tell the size difference in the above picture.

I like the angularity here, but you cannot really tell they’re different sizes… or different teapots for that matter.

Angular, but I can tell the difference. Oh, hurray.

I love tea. Can you tell?

So, maybe I’ll start this Picture of the Week business, or maybe it’ll just be a one time thing.

I don’t just try to make really good food; I also try to eat really good food (out and about, on the town; what have you). Why not take pictures and share them with you?

For the first (and possibly last) Picture of the Week, I will feature a dish the Best Food-Cooking Partner (B.F.C.P.) ordered at a restaurant that has one of the best brunches we’ve ever been to, certainly the best French Toast, and possibly the best tofu (I know??! Tofu.) The B.F.C.P., pictured…

… holding a flower that I made out of a napkin and a plastic fork, ordered this adorably delicious omelet.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the happiest omelet.

What do you think?? Just about the happiest omelet you’ve ever seen, right? Right?!
