"A good meal is like a present, and it can feel goofy, at best, to give yourself a present. On the other hand, there is something life affirming in taking the trouble to feed yourself well, or even decently. Cooking for yourself allows you to be strange or decadent or both. The chances of you liking what you made are high, but if it winds up being disgusting, you can always throw it away and order a pizza; no one will ever know." (Jenni Ferrari-Adler)

Where did the week go?

Time goes by so fast these days its just hard to keep up.  I finally had time to submit one of my tested recipes reviews today. I baked the cake on Wednesday, and today is what? Friday, is there such a thing as 2 days too late?

Someone quit pushing the FF button in my life please!..... that was more like a FFFF (Fucking-Fast-Flash-Forward). Do you feel like your life is also going at a million miles and hour or is it  just me growing older tired and crazier? Oh lord .... and this week's icing on the cake was, " I found 2 gray hairs on my  head, TWO!" I cant decide what was worse the discovery of "fine lines" or gray hairs.... sigh

I'm still cooking despite not being able to post one single picture on the Blog this week.  And truth is the more i eat at home the more i don't want to eat out, to the exception of sushi off-course, though that also may become part of the rule as soon as get my ass to seat in a  Hipcooks class. And that will be sometime between the end of pole-dancing and the beginning of CPA review classes (Pole-dancing and accounting, extremely related subjects as we all know, can only be bridged by sushi).

So this is a snap shot of my weekly cooking in pictures (all snapped with my cell). Recipes to follow :D
