I’m 32 now. I think it’ll be a good year, if this first week is any indication.
So far in this new year, I’ve treated myself to some new fabric, which I’ll be receiving shortly and will photograph when it comes. Happy birthday to me! I’ve also discovered and now adore Greek yogurt. There are tons of varieties being stocked in my local grocery (when did that happen?) but Fage is my favorite brand. It appears to be pronounced Fa-yeh, for those of you that read out loud in your head, like I do. The Trader Joe’s nonfat is really delish, too. I’m going to try them all until I find the one I like best. A lofty goal for the next year, no?
Also in this new birthday year I made some tomato sauce from scratch. Mastering a great tomato sauce has long been among my summer plans, but I’ve only made it twice. This time I made it from this recipe, which actually took a lot longer to cook than he says, despite his ridicule of hours-long sauce cooking. I’ve jarred it for now and plan on making stuffed shells, even though they’ve been poo-pooed by my Italian-American coworker as being Italian-American fare that he tries to avoid at all costs.
(What he doesn’t know is that I don’t mind living down on the lower end of the cultural culinary spectrum. Stuffed shells are brilliant and cheesy and great, don’t you think?)
Speaking of which, do you have a good sauce or stuffed shells recipe? Grandma’s best? Perhaps something reverse-engineered from your favorite restaurant? A good cookbook?Posted by robyn on September 7th, 2009 under cooking, crafts, random
