Fresh Roses (if you look closely, you can see The Monster)
I'm happy to report that I've rejoined the living today! I hit up the grocery store and splurged on some yellow roses. There's nothing like fresh flowers to make you feel fresh, too! I also escorted the Adorable Monster to Petco where we signed up for puppy classes while the Petco employees fawned over his adorableness. So now he can wreak monster havoc on poor unsuspecting puppies in addition to his hapless owners. Upon my return home, I threw a white bean and chicken sausage cassoulet together and tossed it in the oven (recipe is here if you haven't read it yet). While it cooks, I figured I'd catch up on my blogging! Here are some updates:
-Yesterday I made an amazing soup! Roasted Sweet Potato Soup with Ginger Braised Leeks & Spicy Chicken Sausage. Recipe is forthcoming!
-Next weekend, my boyfriend, Kuzak's, brother and his wife, a big Chicago foodie, are visiting LA, so we have an indulgent dining tour of LA planned (what bad economy?). Look for reviews of Animal, Sona (my fav restaurant in LA - we plan to do the improvisational tasting menu) & Lucques' famous Sunday night prix fixe dinner.
-The first Domestic Divas Los Angeles event is in the early stages of being planned, so stay tuned for information on that!
Whew? Ever get that feeling like there aren't enough hours in the day? I know I do! The Monster thinks if he had more time, he'd just chew on things more and nap more. 'Nough said.
