things i’m loving…
a simple egg on a toasted bun (pants’ favorite breakfast)
whole kernel cornbread kicked up with quesa fresco and cheddar cheese (i served this with homemade chicken tortilla soup)
angel food cupcakes topped with whipped frosting and strawberries
ps – sky has been making stop-motion movies out of legos, and they are AMAZING. i don’t even know how he knows how to do this stuff, honestly. he is excited cuz we just signed him up for a lego stop-motion day camp in august where they get to have their stuff filmed with professional equipment!
books have a habit of changing my life. most recently there was joie de vivre, which i know i keep going on about, but that book has somehow given me the freedom to embrace the way i always thought about food. like, yeah, it’s okay to eat good food. and to cook for pure pleasure. and drink a bowl of coffee for breakfast. and now there’s nigella. how to eat, specifically. yes, she has been around for ages and i used to watch her sultry shows back in the day, but i haven’t ever picked up this first book of hers till now. i love her because she’s just so totally satisfied to eat for pleasure and to feed people, which really speaks to me. not to mention she’s damn hot. anyway, i’m just really learning about what it truly means to feed the soul, including ways beyond the kitchen, and it’s pretty cool.
