Guess what I did today! Can you guess? can you? huh? I cooked 🙂 And no, I didn’t make anything Halloween-y, not into that. In my inbox I keep getting recipes for spooky cake or cupcakes and blood and punch. It is starting to get highly annoying. I don’t throw Halloween parties or have time for all that.
What’s even more annoying and pisses me off is when you’re watching a movie or episodes and on the kitchen or dining room table there is a bowl of fake freaking fruit and it is always full! Whenever I see that I just go nuts. And of course the apples look bright red and shiny and the oranges so orange and the grapes look amazing. All the fruit look flawless and like they haven’t aged a day in their lives and that is not normal! Use real fruit and just eat them afterwards or make a pie! I feel like writing to these people…the producers I guess or whoever decorates the set and suggesting they mix it up a little. Maybe fill it up with jelly beans, taffy, or M&M’s and that way the actors can all dig in after the show so no waste. If they want to go healthy, they can place a bowl of assorted raw nuts, a bag of rice cakes, maybe some celery in a jar, anything but fruit! By the way, raw nuts are great with dates, rice cakes are god awful, dry, and tasteless, and I take celery in my Bloody Mary, thank you very much.
Oh I feel better already! As I was saying, I cooked today and I made my first leek and potato soup. I am no longer a leek and potato soup virgin 🙂 I found an easy and yummy recipe. Here we go!
Bad news: Most of you will be horrified to know that, as I was writing this post, I inhaled 6 chocolate digestive biscuits and a spoon of Nutella. Good news: I think they are in a better place now. Also, is it terrible that I have deep feelings for and am the proud owner of two huge 33.5 oz jars of Nutella? Rhetorical question.
