A chef I'll never be...

Well, it's been a while since I updated. I barely got started before I bailed out.

Oh well: if the recipe doesn't turn out well the first time, change things up a little and try again. I'm inspired by my brother's new blog, which he started to document his adventures and misadventures in Athens, Greece while he studies archaeology or something there. I can't keep up with his high-falootin' academic endeavors, but I can continue to be jealous of all the sweet stuff he gets to do.

Anyway, I haven't quit baking or cooking, and I certainly haven't ceased to enjoy my food. I'm now living with my sister, however, so I cook considerably less. She also cooks, and she's a vegetarian. At first glance, those two facts might not seem significant. But since she cooks, I usually eat what she cooks and therefore do not also cook. When I do cook, I try to cook something that she also can eat, which limits me a little. I miss steak, chicken, pork, sausage, bacon, turkey and fish! Oh, my sweet salmon...

I do occasionally break out the poultry and fish. And it's not as though she discourages me from eating meat. I just feel bad when I don't cook something that we can share. My silly little guilty conscience.

I can't promise an update every day. I started law school in the fall, and my life is no longer my own. I belong to West publishing and the Barco Law Library now.

Until the next time!
