Anna writes about food stuff.

I just heard Ruth Reichl [ram] on The Splendid Table. I don’t know if it was a repeat or not, but it was cool to hear her speak. She’s one of my favorite food writers.

Last week, Jamie Oliver [ram] was on the show. I never quite got into his Food Network show, Oliver’s Twist (or The Naked Chef), but the other week I got hooked on back-to-back episodes of Jamie’s Kitchen.

Last night I tried a new recipe that required lots of chopping of vegetables. It was very satisfying. First time I’ve cut up a mushroom and actually cooked it, too. Also, I’ve decided that there’s nothing like fresh basil and oregano to revive a dish.

I’ve been craving really good food. I think I’m tired of the same old stuff that I always make, and the junk I eat at fast food places. The problem is that really good food takes more prep time than I usually have. Also, the food costs money that I don’t always have. Last night’s dinner was a nice change. I think I should start treating myself to a meal that makes me feel like I’m really cooking at least once a week.

One thought on “food”

  1. Right, the fresh herbs are where it’s at. I’m mad that I didn’t bring my container garden inside before the first frost, which turned out to be rather deadly. Now I have to figure out a way to salvage: chives, two kinds of basil, thyme, oregano, and two kinds of mint. I’m a tool!! 🙁

    Actually, I find too that I prefer “Jamie’s Kitchen” to the other incarnations. I like the recipes better and he doesn’t seem as obnoxious, somehow! 🙂
