I am up to my keyster in local politics at the moment, and my life is a merry, madcap whirlwind of meetings, press releases, phone calls, phone calls, e-mails and e-mails. I am sort of cooking, but nothing I would be proud to share with anyone in this forum. Also (and I am whispering) we are eating a lot of pizza, grilled things and Thai restaurant food until this is over. Which may be never.
Here’s all of the food-related news I can come up with:
- The preserved lemons were a bust. I think there was too much lemon juice in the preserving liquid, which rendered all of those beautiful lemons mushy. I am trying to salvage any parts that I can.
- I had Oysters Rockefeller for lunch yesterday, and I am in love, although I may have to walk 50 miles to burn off the four I consumed. (I licked the shells. No, really).
- I have discovered that eggs fried in a little truffle butter are the most elegant meal in the world (except for Oysters Rockefeller)
- I think my farmer’s market opens this weekend.
