I just realized that I spent about a third of my day yesterday cooking, and that is a wonderful thing.
I made pumpkin oatmeal with a pecan streusel topping, potato and spinach curry with cardamom scented basmati rice, bacon jam, and started two loaves of no-knead bread. Today I’ll be making vanilla lattes using my new espresso machine, ginger beer using a Serious Eats recipe, and some interesting-topping Superbowl pizzas by superheating my oven with a cast iron skillet as a pizza stone.
Weekends rule.
