Fridays, on the new, improved schedule, are for artist dates. This gloomy, crackling cold morning (it has been well below zero at night), I am going to go to yoga class, even though my muscles are still sore from Tuesday. Then out to find some new cooking tools: a zester, which I do not have and really want; a heavy, midsize saucepan, which I do have but want a better one; and a new grater. I gave one away in a fit of generosity, and it was the wrong.
Then Whole Foods. There were alluring recipes in Oprah this month–I want to try the clear broth with kaffir lime leaves and chiles, and some gingerbread cookies that look plainly sinful. I had to scrap the developing book (a blog for another day–trust me, it was the right decision) and am puttering around while the right one brews. Cooking seems to be absolutely required for that process somehow.
I might go see Juno, but honestly, I’m not much in the mood for passive watching. I want to DO something.
Any cooking going on in your world? Cooking up books? Artist date planned any time soon?
