it occurred to me after re-reading my last post that I sound a little foodie pretentious.
not to say that anyone implied that, in-fact thanks for all the nice comments, much appreciated.
I just thought it did sounds a tad obnoxious.
amuse bouche was a bit much if I do say so myself.
But there are three things that I am really passionate about in life:
#1. my husband a.k.a. Big Daddy
#2. my 1 year old daughter -whom I can't imagine life without.
#3. food- which I also can't imagine life without. in-fact there would be no life without it.
But not everyday is spent making reductions and 5 course meals.
In-fact some days we just have good ol' pasta and veg.
Pre-lulu we used to eat out ALL the time. probably 5 times a week for dinner and lunch was almost always catered or take-away at work.
But I actually got pretty sick of that.
sooo much variety can sometimes make you start jonesing for a grilled cheese dipped in ketchup.
But now we really don't go out for dinner so much.
well every Friday we go out, but it's with lulu and it's @ 5:30. so it's not exactly a gourmet experience.
so I have really taken to my kitchen in the past year.
I absolutely love cooking.
some people can't stand it, I know.
In-fact I grew up in a house hold where my mother COULDN'T cook.
I'm surprised I'm still alive to write that, and never died of food poisoning!
My dad usually did the cooking,
but as soon as I was permitted to touch the stove I took over. well at least a few nights a week.
you either love it or hate it.
and I do love it.
it's the cleaning up I'm not so passionate about.
