Ying and Yang
To be perfectly honest here..we actually have two things going on. We go back and forth between "the fancy and the farmy". I guess I kinda have a split personality.
Some days I am all about Alice Waters, Julia Child and Thomas Keller. And other days I am Gooseberry Patch, 365 Ways To Cook Chicken, and you know those little paperback cookbooks at the check out stand. I LOVE those. Especially the ones from Pillsbury.
They are always seasonal and farmy... "What To Bring To A Potluck", "Tailgating", "What To Do With Ground Beef", "Autumn Baking","Halloween For Ghouls And Ghosts"...... you know what I mean.
And last night was no exception. We had grilled fillets (fancy) with double stuffed potatoes (farmy) and really farmy when the serving dish is lined in foil. Deep down, I am not a fan of foil lined dishes, but I was tired and didn't want to have to soak and scrub the dish, and nobody was here but me and John. And one more thing, yea, it's real life around here. Yep, that's Dande on the drainboard. Hope you don't mind.
