It’s an Earl Grey kinda sunday…but jazzed up with a little agave and lemon. I want to get out of the house, but can’t decide which route to take. Hiking at Runyan? Farmers market Santa Monica? Farmer’s market close by? Or should i just go and stick my little tosies in the Pacific and enjoy the sunshine? I have sat here, all morning, reading this, and i can barely pull my ass out of my new desk chair! I can’t wait to meet this girl and drink some wine with her on Valentines Day, when she and two of her delightful foodie friends will throw a dinner party, which i promptly RSVP’d to. Oh my goodness I can’t wait!
I baked a chocolate pie yesterday…the meringue could have been a tad bit higher, but overall it was delicious! Next time i will make my own crust. I had a pie shell in the freezer and i wanted to use it up. I took it out of the freezer to thaw t for ten minutes and began casually reading the label, as i have been known to do. To my dismay I discovered that frozen pie shells are nothing but 100% HYDROGENATED OIL!! Sick! I was already using it and i lacked the tools to roll out my own pie crust, but never again will i eat a frozen pie shell. Plus, it isn’t that hard to make your own crust and it only takes three ingredients or so. To do # 29…buy rolling pin.
On a totally unrelated note…i would like to start a business. Or do something to make more money. I would like it to be related to food and maybe travel. Anyone got any ideas?
