Because I know you're, like, so totally interested in what I do every day.
We're having a snow day today! There is very little snow on the ground, none on the roads, and the kids have a whole day off. Being that I work from home my life is still a PJs and tea and internet, but it still feels kind of fancy.
Also I'm having lunch with my sister who is a teacher and never sees adults during the day. So totes a snow day.
Anyway, I always hear people saying that they can't cook because they let things go bad, or can't adjust recipes and it's too expensive to buy ALL the ingredients they need, etc etc. I totally get this, so I thought today I'd share a kind of hierarchy - things I think about FIRST when deciding what we're going to eat, and how I go about making those thoughts into a whole meal.
This was sort of inspired by Chopped, which naturally we watched for 3 hours last night while it "snowed." There was an amateur round on which made me want to enter SO FREAKING BAD, but it might stress me out so much that I'd die, so maybe not. That #alexguarnaschelli, though, man. Love that girl.
