I got up way way too early for a Saturday.  It’s not yet 9 and my laundry is done, and I’ve caught up on all my online reading and finally turned to the TV for entertainment until the rest of my household is awake and I can then be loud and all.

So what’s on TV early on Saturday? Jamie at Home. Oh. My. God.  I forgot just how much I love Jamie Oliver. He’s not even hot anymore and yet, he so totally is. And the food. THE FOOD.  I might go out today and buy al his cookbooks.  I mean, sure I’m not home in the evenings but soon I’ll have time during the day to cook, right?

I’m not a huge fan of sweets in general, sometimes I want chocolate, sure, and I rarely refuse anything with mint in it, but most deserts are too sweet or not interesting enough for me. But I swear, Jamie Oliver has never made a desert that I’d turn down.  This morning was Tray-Baked Meringue with Pears, Cream, Toasted Hazelnuts and Chocolate Sauce.    Watching him spoon the real whipped cream (with real vanilla beans) and the ginger chocolate sauce over the meringue?  Better than porn.  Oh!  Now he’s just made crepe thin omelets and sliced them up like noodles and made a salad out of them with prosciutto, baby greens and fennel.  I almost can’t bear to look at it, it looks soooooo good.

I haven’t thought about food much recently.  No, rather, I have thought about food often, and I have been making a concerted effort to eat better.  But cooking hasn’t been on my radar for a couple years.  Maybe it’s time to start again?

  1. hi, lady,
    miss you madly. i miss your nightly life updates and your sweet boots.
    anyway, i wanted to comment on this post because now that i have no money, i have finally been forced to cook. beck and i haven’t eaten out for more than a week, and it feels really good…
    i know you do a better job than i at watching what you eat, but if you ever want to feel inspired to be healthy, you should check out “you are what you eat” on bbc america. it’s like “what not to wear” but with a meaner, british host, and about food rather than clothes. i just watched one episode this morning, and learned that bananas can combat anxiety! crazy shit.
    anyway, i’ve been extremely reclusive and depressed, but i wanted to give you a shout out and tell you i love you and i miss you. and here’s to being inspired to cook by cute messy haired boys.


  2. I think about you every day. Things are crazy all over right now. It’s like things didn’t really happen unless I tell you about them, Kristenosaurus!! I will come make you food soon, or at least talk your ear off. Love you muchly!
