Why am I writing out cooking instructions? Pretentious, isn't it? I've always been comfortable in the kitchen, but what the hell.....I'm still no Gordon Ramsay.
I can't stand people who complain about not having enough time to cook. That's laziness, come on. Of course, it's not reasonable to expect a 3 course dinner every night, but there's so many simple, healthy dishes that are so easy to make. I just don't understand this fascination with prepared/canned/frozen/reconstituted food. It's not real food!
Times are tight, but still trying to enjoy dinner. Still trying to cook with quality ingredients. A gentleman has got to maintain his standards, even in a crisis, doesn't he?
Big dinner tonight, with family friends. We have this one friend, who we go to for Thanksgiving every year because they're the only one willing to cook turkey. And they got a big old bird this year - 12 kg of succulent delight.
