we are having so much fun with this cookbook. and each other. it's like date nights, at home, midweek. it's been really great for us amidst a heavy season to pick out recipes, shop at the farmer's market, prep the kitchen, smell new smells, try new tastes and enjoy the time together.
So, we have done four more meals - rigatonni with wild rocket and cucumber salad, spinach feta filo pie, green curry chicken with kimichi slaw, sea bass with pancetta and homeade frozen berrry yogurt. On all four accounts YUM. the two that rise to the top for sure - the spinach filo pie and the sea bass (actually, we had to use halibut, apparently sea bass is not in season) were AWESOME. totally new gastro experiences for me. totally unexpected flavors. i'll forward any recipes if anyone wants one.
how other aspirations are going: we still love Project 345. i'm still attempting to cut back on sugar, putting aside a fullout craving that my college roomates, mal and anna, will appreciate was a need for brownie dough. it was just a day ago. i tried so hard since 1pm to resist my body's call for the chocolate delight, but at 8:38pm, i caved, with no regrets. it hit the spot.
