Well yesterday was fun!

I had a post a few weeks ago about why one should not order the plain white sandwich. Unless you’re E, and your girlfriend is making grilled cheese sandwiches with sauteed brussels sprouts and you despise the green veggies.
Sometimes—such as yesterday— E thinks I make him look childish. After my recap of E refusing to eat store bought smoked salmon, in favor of the fresh, pastrami–flavored fish from Russ & Daughters, E told me. “You portray me as a tantrum-having child sometimes.”
Rating: I’m ready for a vacation. Not only to get away from this drab New York City weather, but also to give E and I something else to do beside stare at each other.
Rating: Boyfriends say the darndest things.
I hadn’t made a Crock-Pot meal all week, and I didn’t want our favorite appliance to feel abandoned. While E cranked out code, I threw together chicken cacciatore.
Rating: The flu. It ain’t pretty. Stuffy, runny nose. Body aches. Fever. Chills. I had it all, for what felt like forever. Finally, the symptoms eased tonight.
Rating: What the heck is more perfect on Super Bowl morning than a steak and eggs breakfast sandwich? A manly sandwich, made for linebackers and defensive ends and free safetys and…. um… lanky, surfer boyfriends like E!
Rating: I am a walking informercial for the Crock-Pot. The kitchen appliance has seriously changed my life.
E served up a beautiful, slow cooker meal of chicken and vegetables. We were getting good at mastering the art of crock pottery. He seasoned the meat with cinnamon, cloves, pepper and salt and browned it before putting it in the crock pot with a cup of wine, a cup of broth and a squeeze […]
There comes a time in every food bloggers life that she becomes so important–and so polarizing–that she needs security. That time has arrived for me. Call me the Sarah Palin of food, but I have a guy with a gun and a car to follow me around for a while just in case someone doesn’t […]
Rating: I got the final results from my doctor about Lupita, that benign yet atypical mass I had removed earlier this month. Turns out, the mass was so atypical, only one other woman in the history of modern breast medicine is documented in medical research as having one treated. Talk about one (or two) in […]
Being at home with my parents during the holidays reminded me of a few things. Like how awesome it feels to be able to walk around without doing your hair and makeup for two days and having no one judge you. How much fun it is to watch football with my dad. How comforting it […]
Rating: Dare I say there’s mushrooms on this sandwich? MUSHROOMS! On a sandwich for E?! Friday night, E and I brainstormed ideas for dinner over text. When I met him in the fresh produce aisle of Foragers, I saw him standing in front of the forbidden vegetable. “I’m thinking skirt steak, with a mushroom sauce.” […]
E and I took a road trip up to Killington, VT this weekend for some snowboarding. Finally, we got to do a sport that I was actually skilled in. I have been snowboarding for about eight years and can master my fair share of black diamonds. I’ve even weaseled my way out of some hairy […]
