So, I love me some Top Chef. I think that I've watched all 5 seasons, and
sadly, the cheftestant that I wanted to win has only won once (Harold). I have a feeling that the dapper young gentleman that I love this time (Fabio), probably won't win this year's competition, but he's certainly my favorite.
Really, cooking...when I have TIME to cook is one of my favorite things in the world. I would absolutely love to be in a position to not have to work, and to be able to cook home-cooked meals from scratch every day. They just taste better, and I just FEEL better after eating them. What's really neat about Fabio is that I really COULD cook some of his dishes at home. Sure, he knows molecular gastronomy, but most of the stuff he ends up cooking is just simple, good food....which is my kind of food.
PS- J loved the taco soup...he definitely couldn't tell the difference between ground beef and ground turkey ("Ohhh YES! It has ground beef in it!").
My allergies are absolutely terrible lately. You know that Claritin commercial where she talks about being in a fog? Yeah, that's me for the past week...along with killer headaches due to the changes in the barometric pressure. All I want to do is come home and sleep. Alas, I have to work late again tonight. Boo and hiss.
What are y'all doing for Valentine's Day this year? I know a lot of people don't really celebrate it, but I LOVE V-Day. Justin didn't do a DAMN thing the first year we were dating (not even a card). Really, all I need to be happy is a card, and maybe some Tart Hearts. I know it's a silly made up holiday, but I like those grand gestures, and they don't happen any other time, so I take what I can get. This year, I'm hoping for a kitten (doubtful).
