I love cooking mid-day because no one’s home. It’s just me and my knives and pans and some good music. I can be as messy as need be, can use as many useless gadgets as I want, blast the Food Network in the background and pretend I host my very own cooking show, all in the comfort of my tiny NYC apartment. When my roommate is home around dinner time I generally prefer to fane normality.
For lunch today I decided on cooking up some of the beautiful asparagus I bought on Monday. Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies but I was starting to realize I generally just steam it. How very boring of me. So instead of steaming it and dousing it with a bit of lemon juice and salt like I normally would I decided to incorporate it into my entree. For someone who loves cooking and writes two food blogs, I’ve noticed I tend to be a bit boring in my food choices-well I’m going to work on that, I need to shake things up a bit for me and for you! Perhaps I need to break out some of the bazillion cook books I own.
Kim: Thank you so much!
