the rest of the meal was pretty basic, but good. I made leeks and carrots, braised with garlic and finished with thyme and a squeeze of lemon. this came out ok, although I want to rework it for next time. some people seem to like their veggies cooked a LOT more than is my preference. even so, it tasted really good and the house still smells terrific from the first step of sauteeing the leeks.
I've been trying a lot of new recipes lately and really enjoying it. it doesn't always come out quite to my liking, but I always get ideas for how to change things up. in fact, I improvise a lot now, mostly only looking at recipes for technical advice or ideas for flavor combinations. it's a really fun way to cook!
I've also been organizing an event that is coming up, and spending a lot of time on that. I'm still kinda wiped from How Weird but it went well and I'm really looking forward to doing more sales this summer.
well this is a pretty dull entry, but it's my life!
