First off, I haven't forgotten about you, dear readers. My recent move was relatively painless and I am in the process of getting my new apartment whipped into shape. I know that there are some people out there asking "where's the recipe this week?" "What about the blood oranges you promised to tell us about two weeks ago?" All in due time, my friends.
My excuse this week, aside from the mountains of boxes I must sift through and finding homes for each one's contents, is a mildly frustrating one. For those of you who know me personally, you know that I got a new apartment because my previous landlord lacked the knowledge (as well as funding) to complete even the simplest repair. So when I moved into my new pad, I was excited to know that everything would be working just great. Everything that is, but the oven/stove. Yup. Not hooked up to the gas line. So, deciding not to rely on the microwave for my meals, there has been very little cooking this week. Preparing cold cereal counts as cooking, right? Right?
But, fear not as the new (and decidedly more competent) landlord will be around this weekend to take care of everything. I have so much more faith in him. Let's hope he lives up to my expectations.
In the meantime, I have a request for you. Every week I offer you a new dish. Sometimes I hear back from readers (both near and far) about their culinary adventures. So, since I am sorry to say that I have no recipe for you this week, I thought I'd give you the chance to tell me about yours. What have you been cooking lately? Anything totally amazing? Something that changed the way you view your food / you life / your pets? Anything so awful you cringe at the very thought of it? Let me know! I'm all ears and I've got an empty plate.
