How’s that for a cute title that makes this post sound totally legit even though it really means I don’t have anything to write about because we’ve only eaten boxed macaroni and cheese (at least it was organic!) and rachel sandwiches all week. Well, actually, I DID cook on Monday, but apparently one good meal in a week is still all I’ve got in me.
Okay, so a few things I love today.
1. Cleaning leeks.
Yes, I LOVE cleaning leeks. Cutting them open and washing out that black dirt is just so, I don’t know, satisfying.
2. Fred’s Steak. Go on, tell me that meat ain’t gorgeous. I dare ya.
A few weeks ago I was craving steak. I needed it desperately. So I turned to one of our favorites, Fred’s Steak, which I’ve written about before. For the LOVE, this stuff is good. And, wouldn’t you know, once I had this, my craving was gone. Thank you, Shaub’s, for helping a poor pregnant lady out.
3. Jake Gyllenhall. I’m resisting the urge to say “Go on, tell me THAT meat ain’t gorgeous” but I don’t want to objectify poor, innocent Mr. Gyllenhaal.
Don’t worry, Nate knows I’m in love. In fact, he recorded Jimmy Kimmel for me last night because Jake (yes, we’re on a first name basis) was on the show. What a good husband – Nate, not Jake. Anyway, I already love Jake for being so darn cute and funny…but then I learn from last night’s interview that he loves food. I think I know a food blog you might like, Jake. Oh, and he works with Edible Schoolyard, founded by Alice Waters. Be still my beating heart.
