....and get back in the kitchen.
Can you get back into something you never were in? Our new kitchen is bigger and brighter and much better behaved than our old one and yet, since we've moved in I haven't done much cooking. Or experimenting. But, after a week of eating out at every one of the best restaurants in Bellingham (tee hee) I missed a home cooked meal, or rather my pocket book missed it (pocket book?!?). And while the steak at Nimbus was to die for, my steak last night was pretty damn amazing, and for half the price. So...I reenter the kitchen and I fall back in love.
The menu last night:
Pan seared Ribeye in a Spanish Rioja pan sauce. With garlic mashed red potatoes and asparagus. Add a glass of the rioja on the side and bam! (sorry, that was lame.)
The in-laws are coming! And they are going to take us out, because as much as I say I missed cooking I still LOVE LOVE LOVE eating out. It's magical to me, the same as it was when I was a kid. Such a TREAT! But before dinner I will be providing the appetizer, Cumin roasted Fingerling potatoes with Greek sour cream, dill, cilantro, and salmon. Mouth. Watering. And what better to go along with a little papas con cuminos? A Mandarin Mojito with 10 kane rum!
Shit, speaking of which, I've got to go make some simple syrup.
I just cussed, like a lot. Sorry mom!
