Today I am attempting to do some cooking. I’ve been doing a little more of that this year. Particularly from one new cook book we got with NW fish recipes. Anyway, today is post-holiday cooking day. We didn’t get our collective acts-slash-shits together this year, nor were we particularly anticipating turkey and trimmings, so we waited to go shopping and to have our holiday meal today (and tomorrow and Sunday and perhaps for the foreseeable future). However, because Lolly has been a bit under the weather lately, I am playing the role of cook. Well, Chef, really is what I prefer. Or Boss. Or Holy Goddess Mother of the Get-the-Hell-Out-of-My-Kitchen. (I do find cooking to be a little stressful.)
Hold on, I have to go stir my soup.
Ok, so I am making a sampling of goodness from the NW fish cookbook and a Mario Batali cookbook. More specifically, I am making a mac and cheese with crab (from scratch), some spicy pumpkin soup, a broccoli dish, and a dried mushroom rubbed beef roasty thing. Wish me luck.
