Let’s talk about food! Yum! Last night I went to a Japanese restaurant and had Hibachi for the first time. How have I NOT had this before? I’ve been to the same restaurant for sushi many times. How have I missed this experience? YUM! I think I was the only person there to miss the shrimp in the shrimp toss though LOL
The famer’s market is open in my city and in an effort to be more Green I ride my bike there every Saturday morning. It’s early still so mostly I get greens, asparagus, radishes, fresh pasta, but today I discovered something new. Molasses cookies. Oh. My. God. These are so freaking delicious! I swear these cookies hae officially ruined me for any other cookie. I already ate 2. I need to hide them. I need that person I’m going to hire to follow me around and keep me from buying yarn to also hide these cookies for me and just give me one a day. 🙂
I haven’t taken any pictures of the kitchen or much cooking because there is no natural light in there. But I’ve been doing a lot of cooking since getting back from Italy. I’ll be making pizza from scratch again this weekend, some ragu I think and I’m not sure what all else. Since I was taking pictures of the cookies I took one of my coffee mug. A couple of weeks ago I bought a set of matching dinnerware for the first time ever. Yes really, ever. I’m 31 and I’ve never had a matching set of dinnerware before. It’s a long story involving moving a lot, having stuff that people gave me etc. I still don’t have matching flatware, the stuff I have is what was given to me by family members when I went away for college. I love my matching dinnerware. It’s a beautiful shade of blue.
I also got some of these great Rubbermaid containers. (I realize excitement about kitchen products reveals a deep inner dorkiness, but lets ignore that.) I gave away all my old ones. These are awesome cuz the lids lock together, no more loose lids falling all over the place! Plus I got one of these large produce savers for my lettuce, I’m only one person and I can only eat it so fast, sometimes it gets yucky before it’s gone. So far this thing is working great.
