Back to Work

Whew - that was a pretty good hiatus. But now it's time to get back to work. Yeah, yeah - I know what you're thinking... back to work? But you don't even have a freakin' job! OK - I got it.

In any event, I'm back to whatever it is that I do. June turned into a little bit of a stress-case month, and I certainly haven't done a lot of cooking over the past 4 weeks, which means not a lot of shopping either. It's hot out and it's hot in our kitchen, and if I was cooking in there, I'd be complaining, wouldn't I?

Oh, there were a few salads that were made and eaten for lunch...when Significant Eater was here in NYC and really working. Here's a version of Nicoise which I like to make...
One day I made these for breakfast...
Which came out great, btw. I also bought this...
Admittedly, it became a bit of an obsession for a while. Now, it's become a great way to get to and from the farmer's market and various other shopping destinations.

There's been plenty of dining out, including a return trip to Jack's Wife Freda, where the zucchini "chips" were awesome. I still believe the frying skills here are unmatched in the city...
And back to Mission Chinese Food New York, which is civilized, with nary a wait - at lunch. And where the newish catfish dish practically explodes...
And the chilled buckwheat noodles are perfect on a sweltering day...
So you see, it's not all fun and games around here. There's more food to report on. There's cold stuff to "cook" and sorbets and gelati to churn. There's even some complaining to do - it's too bloody hot, to be honest.

Like I said, vacation's over.

  1. I thought you gave up complaining.
