Hey guys. How's it going? Good? That's good. I've had a cold since Sunday. I think it's bronchitis. I was stuck on the couch for 4 days, watching terrible TV and going out of my mind. (I did gain a new found love for "Bethenny Ever After". She's actually really funny and smart. Johnny no likey.) I haven't cooked all week and I am absolutely DONE with delivery food, but also too tired to go shopping and slave over a hot stove. It has been overcast and rainy in New York for days now, adding to the doom and gloom. I really wish Spring would hurry up and get here with all its new produce, flowering plants (achoo!), and outdoor activities. I want to have a picnic in the park or go to a drive-in movie or take a walk on a beach. Alas, I am relegated to wearing my tired old winter coat and carrying my umbrella in my purse for at least a few more weeks. Harumph.
My plan is to get back in the kitchen this weekend and shake things up. I want to make a batch of potato tacos with some fun toppings like pickled red onion, homemade salsa, cashew cream and maybe a side of homemade frijoles. I have the urge to make sugary cupcakes and baked goods, too, but that might be counterproductive to feeling good. Any other ideas to culinarily reinvigorate me? Maybe it's time for a cleanse or something. I dunno.
Anyway, here's a picture to pull you out of the hole I just pushed you in. Wish I had one of these cuties to cuddle with!
