I was on a winning streak a couple of weeks ago. In the course of a week, I won a box of Meyer lemons from Princess Nebraska’s backyard (yum), two camis from Mod Bod (oh my heavens, I love them so much; in the last ten days, I’ve probably worn them at least five times), and. . . .an immersion blender from Perry’s Plate. Seriously. I laughed.
Should you be in a cooking mood (and really, why shouldn’t you be?), here are two recipes I’ve loved lately. First, lemon cream. Oh my word, this stuff is to die for. I’ve made it twice with the aforementioned Meyer Lemons and it’s just the most delicious thing ever (caution: some hyperbole may have been used). Spreading it on muffins is an excellent way to go.
And then these Sweet Potato Tin Foil Tacos. This was one of those meals where I had low expectations and then Bart and I spent the whole mean saying “THIS IS SO GOOD.” A little guacamole and sour cream on top, and it was one of the best dinners I’ve made in ages.
Have you heard about Pinterest? I got an invite from Emily, and I am in love. I think this might finally solve my recipe organizing problems. Any of you using it? And if anyone wants an invite, I’ve got several. I won’t lie, though, the site can be reallllllly slow to load.
I’m reading The Ominvore’s Dilemma for book club and finding it so ridiculously fascinating. I read In Defense of Food a while ago and while I enjoyed that one, so far this one is much more interesting to me. Bart is a good soul to listen to me ramble on at length about it.
