Catching Up

We are moved and I am cooking in a new/old kitchen. The set up here is strange because my father, who has never cooked anything more involved than a can of soup, designed the kitchen. He would take no advice and so, for now, I have to live with the consequences. They aren’t too dire but the kitchen is awkward with cracks in the edges of the countertops, badly stained linoleum that is coming apart at the seams and a cabinet system that has lots of room that is not greatly useable.

So, whine, snivel, stomp. Here I am, back in the Big City, where I belong and I haven’t been so happy in years. When I cook something delicious and want to photograph it, I just can’t bring myself to share the tawdry realities of my current cooking space. Recently I have made a delicious breakfast casserole, my favorite fennel and rock fish recipe, a simple, hearty goulash with cabbage and local hamburger and a delicious, sweet salad that everyone in our family consumed like sharks on a feeding frenzy. No recipes though, and no photos. Not yet.
I’ll get back to it soon, if any of you are waiting around out there for my next great, easy, chemical-free food ideas. If you’re waiting for more of my dry, smart-assed commentary you will be satisfied much more quickly.
