So I'm brewing new menus for next week, but just wanted to say a few things:
1. Yes, this is really real. We really do eat this stuff. And if any of it seems hard or complicated, trust me, it's not. Precision is not a strong suit in this Allmen household.
2. I got a new cookbook! It's The Barefoot Contessa Cookbook, and it's gorgeous. I sat on the couch this afternoon during the Michigan State game and read THE WHOLE THING... and it's hard to decide what to make first. Yay, new cookbooks!
3. I also got MY VERY OWN BLOWTORCH (for kitchen use, not for welding) for Christmas. It came with a demand, though: an invite for creme brulee was necessary. So now I need to learn to cook creme brulee. I imagine lots and lots of practice batches to get it "just right."
